Hariyali Chicken Kebab | Green Chicken Kebab | Starter Recipe

Hariyali Chicken Kebab, a flavorful, delicious & juicy chicken kebab which is very popular in North India!!! Hariyali means "Green",so it's basically a chicken kebab made with aromatic green masala. The green paste used in this recipe made from mint, coriander and some aromatic indian spices. The flavor from the green paste totally elevates the taste of this kebab to a whole new level. 

Hariyali Chicken kebab taste best with boneless chicken, so i prefer to use chicken breast for this kebab. But it's totally up to you, if you like your kebab/chicken with bone the best, then absolutely go head and use chicken drumstick or chicken leg or whatever you like.It tastes good as starter or as side for your rice or roti. Even you can stuff this kebab along with some onions & veggies in your favorite flat bread and have it as wrap. 

Here in today's recipe, i have used my oven to bake this kebab. But if you've open grill, i highly recommend to use that for the smoky flavor. Next the color and flavor of this kebab are mainly depends on the mint and coriander leaves used in the recipe, so try to use as fresh as possible for best flavor and vibrant color. If the herbs are little old and the color is little on darker side of green, then you may not get that  vibrant green color on your kebab, but taste wise still it would be awesome. 

Now let's check out on how to make this delicious Hariyali/Green Chicken Kebab.

  • You can marinate the chicken and keep it overnight for more flavor.
  • Add 1/2 tsp of garam masala in the marination for more flavor 
  • Apply some ghee on top of the kebab when it's come out form the oven for rich kebab. I didn't use it. 
  • Instead of baking in oven, you can cook it in stove top also. Heat some oil in the pan and place the skewers, rotate now and then until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
