Watch the video showing How to make ginger chicken

  • Marinate the chicken chunks (i used bone-in chicken ) with soy sauce, pepper powder, and cornflour. No need of adding salt as soy sauce itself will be salty. Let it set aside for half an hour.
  • Heat butter in a non-stick pan (2 tbsp melted ). Add marinated chicken chunks and toss them over a high flame and then reduce the flame. Again over a high flame until chicken is golden and half done. When done, transfer it to a plate. Set aside.
  • Grind together onion, ginger and garlic in a blender. Make a fine puree.
  • Now in the same pan add more butter if required. Saute ground paste over a medium flame. Saute continuously and cook until the oil floats on the top (very important ).
  • Now add chili powder, chopped red chilies(or green chilies) and tomato sauce. Mix well. Cook well and add a dash of water if required. Add salt.
  • Then add the tossed chicken pieces. Mix well.
  • Now cover and cook for 15 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked and well coated in the gravy. 
  • When you reach the right consistency, you can see oil separates from the chicken gravy. 
  • Switch off the heat and garnish with coriander leaves chopped and chopped chilies.
  • Yummy flavorful ginger chicken is ready to serve. It is finger licking good chicken dish and I recommend to try this at least once.
