About Green Chicken Recipe

This recipe is of the traditional green chicken which has been passed down through generations. The ingredients for the green paste are very similar to a chutney, a very popular condiment in any Indian household. The lovely lush green color is entirely natural. The flavour from the dry coconut lifts the dish like no other.
