Bored of eating and making the same types of chicken gravies??Try making Murg Yakhni – spicy, refreshing gravy with a hint of mint!! An absolute favourite of me and my mom.

In a blender,combine the coriander leaves,mint and green chillies.
Blend to a puree,add little water if necessary.
Marinate the chicken pieces in ginger-garlic paste,beaten curd and 4 tsp green chilly coriander puree.
Keep aside overnight or minimum 2 hours.
In a kadhai,heat oil and add cloves,green cardamoms,cinnamom sticks,bayleafs and blackpepper corns.
Then add the roughly chopped tomatoes.
