How to Make Himachali Chicken Curry

To make Himachali chicken curry, start by marinating the chicken pieces with haldi, salt, and pepper. Keep it aside for a few minutes.
Heat mustard oil in a kadhai and add all the spices to it. Cook for a minute or two, and then add chopped onions, ginger, garlic, and green chilies and continue cooking.
Once done, transfer to a mixer grinder to form a smooth paste. You can add some water if required.
In the same kadhai, heat mustard oil again and add the prepared masala paste. Allow it to cook for a few minutes, and then glaze the kadhai with beaten yoghurt and milk.
Give it a nice stir before adding the marinated chicken pieces. Cover the kadhai with a lid and cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves, and serve hot! Himachali-style chicken curry is ready to be savoured.
