ZERO OIL CHICKEN CURRY

It’s a myth that we need oil as a medium to cook tasty food, it’s the spices that enhances the taste not the oil. There are always healthy options without compromising on taste and nutrition. We justneed to findout …Instead of oils you can cook in coconut milk or cashew/ almond paste which are healthy fats to meet our daily requirement but in a moderate amount. Adding healthy fats and omitting unhealthy fats is always better. Here I used home made cow butter just to grease the pan, to saute onion as cow butter is low in calorie and healthy. Let’s hop in to the recipe.

Ingredients:

Chicken – 500 gms

Onion chopped- 1

Green chillies- 2

Cow butter one tsp

Turmeric powder pinch
Salt to taste
Garam masala pinch

Ginger garlic paste -1 tsp
Chilli powder – 1 tsp

Coriander leaves for garnishing

To be ground in to paste:

Coconut small piece
Poppy seeds – 1/4 tsp

Pepper corns 1/2 tsp

Coriander seeds 1/4 tsp

Procedure:

1. Wash chicken and drain water. Marinate chicken with turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt.

2. In mixer jar grind all ingredients to be ground ( coconut, poppy, coriander seeds, pepper). Make a smooth paste.
