Coriander Chicken roast/Malli Kozhi Piralal

Today i am going to share with you a different non-vegetarian recipe -"Coriander Chicken Roast"...This is not a usual kerala style chicken roast.It is something different.The main ingredient for this is coriander seeds..Actually i got this recipe idea from Chef Lakshmi and she prepared this with mutton. I have already posted that Mutton dish here. While having this mutton dish my husband suggested me that why can't you  try this recipe with chicken..ya it was a good idea..finally i tried it with chicken ,as a result i got one more entry for the chicken recipe collections...About this recipe, it is very simple and quiet easy to prepare..Usually any non-veg cooking we have to  saute the ingredients for atleast 10 minutes in oil or butter but in this recipe it is not necessary to  saute anything. just add all the ingredients as fresh as its available..We named this dish as Coriander Chicken Roast...Hope all of you will try this recipe..I can guarantee that u will like the taste...

Cooking time : 15-20 minute
Cost of the item: 4.29 usd/whole chicken


Chicken: 1 pound
Corriander seeds: 3 tbs
black pepper seed: 1/2 tbs
Cumin seed:1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder:1/2 tsp
Kashmiri chili powder: 1 tsp
Pearl onion : 15 nos
Ginger : meduim sized
Garlic : 6 pods
Green Chili: 4 nos
Fenugreek: 1/2 tsp
Water: 1/2 cup
For seasoning
Oil: 1 tsp
Pearl onion: 4 nos
Curry leaves: 1 spring
Coriander leaves : some

Step1 : Grind coriander seeds,black pepper and cumin seed with turmeric powder and make a
nice powder
Step2: In a pressure cooker,add the chicken pieces with sliced pearl onions, splitted green chili , sliced garlic, ginger and fenugreek seeds .Mix all together and then add the above masala powder mix along with water...
Step 3: Cook it until all the chicken pieces are well cooked or 2-3 whistle
Step4: Heat oil in a pan..Add the sliced pearl onions ,saute well then add the curry leaves..
Step5: pour this into the cooked chicken roast..Garnish with some cilantro
The Delicious Coriander Chicken Roast is ready to have..Good Combo with rice.

Cook's tip:
  • Do not add more than a cup of water...If you like to have more gravy u can add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water..Chicken itself has lot of  moisture
  • Do not overcook the chicken...
  • If u do not have pearl onion just use red onion and dice them into very small pieces..
