Lemon Chicken


For the marination:

Chicken: 200 gm
Ginger: 1 inch
Garlic: 3 cloves
Green chilli: 1
Turmeric powder: 1 tsp.
Coriander powder: 1 tsp.
Lemon juice: 2 tsp.
Peppercorns: 1/2 tsp.
Salt: To taste

For the curry:

Onions (chopped): 1
Curry leaves: a few
Lemon pickle/lemon juice: 2 tsp.
Green chilli (chopped): 1
Lemon pieces of 1-2 lemons
Cooking oil: 2 tsp.

  1. Make a paste from ginger, garlic and green chillis. Mix with turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt, peppercorns and lemon juice. Marinate the chicken in this mix for 30 minutes.
  2. After 30 minutes, add this mix to a pan and cook for about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and take out in a separate bowl. Keep aside.  
  3. Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped onions and curry leaves. Let cook for about 2 minutes. Add the lemon pickle (which gives a wonderful taste, otherwise you can use lime juice as well) and green chillis. Mix well and let cook for another minute. 
  4. Add the cooked chicken and the lemon wedges. Mix well and cover for 10 minutes. Remove cover and mix well. Serve hot.
