About Dhaniya Fried Chicken Recipe

This snack item is my daughter's favorite. She hates fresh dhaniya but loves the smell of sabut dhaniya. Like any other mother I created this recipe especially for her.

Dhaniya Fried Chicken

Ingredients to make Dhaniya Fried Chicken

  • 6 - 8 chicken pieces (Leg and breast)
  • 4 tbsp ginger garlic paste (I use Smith and Jones)
  • 2 tbsp sabut/whole dhaniya/coriander seeds (semi crushed)
  • Paste of 1 onion
  • Paste of 1 - 2 green chillies
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp haldi/turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp of whole spices (1 clove 2 cardamom 1 cinnamon)
  • 2 - 3 tbsp tomato ketchup (I used kissan)
  • oil for frying
  • salt to taste

How to make Dhaniya Fried Chicken

  1. Wash and clean the chicken. Let it stand in the colander for a while, so that the water dries up and excess moisture dissolves.
  2. Combine all the ingredients except the whole spices, 1/4 tbsp of sabut dhaniya and oil. Add in the chicken pieces. You can marinate it over night but 3- 4 hours is good enough as well.
  3. Heat sufficient oil in a kadhai and add in the whole spices. When the oil is sufficiently warm, add in the chicken pieces and keep the flame on medium - low.
  4. With the help of the spatula you can check when the chicken is done. Note to fry the chicken just before you are about to serve it.
  5. Serve hot with your choice of sauce or chutney.

My Tip:

Adding whole spices in the oil enhances its flavour,
