Chicken and mushrooms curry with Coriander

Chicken and mushrooms curry with Coriander

So I discovered an Iranian community near my area. Ever since then my room is loaded with Saffron tea, Dates, … and herbs I don’t even know how to call them.

I also found a big bag of dried coriander leaves.

The Indian spices usually include fresh coriander or coriander seed powder, but usually no dried leaves. And fresh coriander in Europe can be a bit expensive. (I am still used to getting it for free .. that’s how it worked back in India 😉 )

So here’s how I used it.

The recipe:

  • Heat some oil in a deep pan
  • Add mustard seeds and let them pop in the hot oil
  • Add chopped ginger and whole red chillies
  • Add chopped onions and garlic
  • Add whole black pepper seeds, few curry leaves
  • Saute for 10 min
  • Add turmeric powder and dried tomatoes
  • Add chicken masala and coriander seed powder
  • Add chopped tomatoes
  • Mix and heat for another 5 min
  • Add chicken legs
  • Add a cup of water, cover and let it boil for 20 min
  • Add dried coriander leaves and chopped mushrooms
  • Heat for another 15 min
