White Chicken Recipe

I came across this recipe in Bombay Times. It is Eesha Koppikar's favourite chicken recipe of her mom. It is quiet simple to make and great to taste. We all really enjoyed this one. So thought of sharing it with all.

  • 1/2 kg chicken
  • 2 medium sized chopped onions
  • 4 tbsp of ghee or 8 tbsp of oil
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup thick curd
  • 1/2 cup malai
  • 1 tbsp cashewnut powder
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds powder
  • 3 or 4 green chillies (split)

  • Marinate the chicken in ginger garlic paste, curd, pepper and salt for two hours.
  • Add ghee/oil in the preheated pan.
  • Add the chopped onions and fry till golden brown.
  • Add chicken to this and fry till the ghee separates.
  • Add cashewnut and poppy seed powder to thicken the gravy.
  • Add water for desired consistency.
  • Add split green chillies.
  • Now cover and let it cook till the chicken is done.
  • Turn off the gas and add malai.
  • Garnish with corriander.

Variations that I did:
  • I used oil and not ghee
  • I did not have cashewnut and poppy seed powder, so I soaked cashewnuts and poppy seeds in water for about 1/2 hour and then made a thick paste of it together.
  • I did not add malai. Found the gravy too creamy even before adding malai so avoided it.
  • In the garnish I also added mint leaves.
