Beetroot Chicken


Chicken: 200 gm
Beetroot (grated): 1 small
Cooking oil: 2 tsp.
Cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp.
Cinnamon: 1/2 inch
Star anise: 1
Onion (chopped): 1
Ginger-garlic paste: 2 tsp.
Tomato (chopped): 2
Green chilli (chopped): 1
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder: 1/2 tsp.
Garam masala: 1/2 tsp.
Kasoori methi: 1/2 tsp.
Milk: 1/2 cup

  1. Heat oil and splutter the whole spices: cumin, cinnamon and star anise. Add onion and fry until it becomes transparent. Add ginger-garlic paste and saute until the raw smell goes away.
  2. Add the grated beetroot and mix, fry for a while so that it is completely fried and you don't taste the sweetness of beetroot in the final dish. It will take about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes and green chilli and mix well. Sprinkle salt, mix and let cook until the tomatoes are soft and mushy. 
  4. Add red chilli, garam masala and kasoori methi. Add chicken and fry in with the masala for about a minute or two. Add the milk and mix well. Add half a cup water also if required and cover. Let cook on medium flame for about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove cover and let cook for 3-4 more minutes or until the curry reaches the desired consistency. Turn off the flame and serve hot !!
