Chicken and chickpeas is a unique combination, isn’t it 🙂 I like to have it with potato raita and salad. I was making chicken pulao at first but then I thought I should add chickpeas in it with mughlai pulao spices. The end product was very delicious.

Chickpeas (boiled) 1 cup

Jaifal Jawitry 1/2 tsp

  • Pour oil in a deep pan and add onions. Fry on low flame till golden brown.
  • Now remove half of the onions and spread on paper towel.
  • Add chicken and g/g paste. Stir and fry constantly on medium flame.
  • As soon as chicken changes its color to golden add garam masala and stir it for few seconds.
  • Now add salt, dahi, red chilli powder, jaifal jawitry and fry all very well.
  • Add water to make yakni.
