Bihari Chicken - Authentic Bihari Recipe


Hello friends,

Today, I am going to share one of the tried and tasted recipes, which I came across in Living Foods by Chef Ajay Chopra. The actual recipe was made with Mutton, I have replaced it with Chicken [Nattu Kozhi]. Bihari Mutton is the delicacy of choice during many Bihari Weddings. This recipe was a little unique because the chicken was fried in oil initially before making the gravy. Then beautiful green aromatic masala is prepared and the chicken is cooked in perfect blend of spices which makes this chicken scrumptious. Any way friends do try out this lip smacking Bihari Chicken and post your comments here. Meanwhile, do check out other interesting and tempting Non-Vegetarian recipes like gravies, fries,biryanis etc here.

Method

Wash the chicken pieces thoroughly with water. Finally add turmeric powder to the chicken pieces and wash thoroughly and keep it aside.


Heat oil in a kadai, add the chicken pieces and fry until a crispy layer in the chicken is formed.

Now remove the chicken from oil and transfer it to a plate and keep it aside.

Meanwhile add all the ingredients mentioned under making masala paste, ginger, garlic, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, green chillies, coriander leaves to the mixer and grind it to a fine paste with required amount of water.



In the same kadai [the fried oil is left], add cinnamon sticks, cloves, cardamom, bay leaves, black pepper, dry chillies and fry until nice aroma fills the room or for about 40-50 seconds.

Now add the sliced onions, little salt and saute until the onions change to light golden brown color.

Add red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder and fry until the raw smell vanishes.


Now add the ground masala paste and saute well until the raw smell vanishes. 



Add little water and let it come to a boil.



Add the fried chicken pieces, required salt and give a good stir.


Cover and cook the chicken for about 35-40 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.


Stir in between to avoid burning and check the consistency of the curry/gravy. It is totally our choice to make the gravy either thick or thin depending upon the requirement.


Delicious, spicy and tasty Bihari Chicken is ready to be enjoyed. Serve it hot with steam cooked rice or with rotis or chapatis.
