Bohri Style Green Chicken


This is for those lazy evenings when you want to eat something delicious but don’t want to sweat it out in the kitchen for too long! This definitely is the quickest Chicken dishes I have ever made and the end result was quite flavourful to boot!

I took this recipe from a blog named Thoughts over Chai run by a lady named Tasneem Rajkotwala based in the UAE. She has lots of amazing recipes on her blog and I have already adapted one of her most popular and special recipes in the past – Lagan Seekh ||| Traditional Bohra Recipe which definitely was one of the most unique dishes I have ever made.

I am very sure that I would be making this Green Chicken multiple times as it was so easy & quick to make plus delightfully flavorful. Do give it a shot folks.
