Chicken In Green Peas Gravy

My daughter loves peas, especially shelling them and occasionally popping some into her mouth. I had a big packet full of green peas in my fridge. My husband suggested that we make green peas paste and use it in a chicken dish, just for variety. Peas are really helpful in weight management, anti-aging, removing wrinkles and maintaining a healthy immune system. That is why I was thrilled at the idea of making this healthy and full of proteins dish. It tasted superb. Hope you like it! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!) :)

Chicken In Green Peas Gravy


My Ingredients

  • Chicken- 500 gms                        (boneless. cut in cubes)
  • Green peas - 250 gms
  • (boiled and made into a fine paste)
  • Yogurt - 1/2 cup
  • Onion (large)- 1 (paste)
  • Green chilli paste - 1 tbsp
  • Tomato - 3 (cut in cubes)
  • Ginger - 1 1/2 " piece
  • Garlic - 5 cloves
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin powder - 1 tsp
  • Oil and ghee - 1 1/2 tbsp each
  • Salt- to taste
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Whole spices(cardamom, cloves, bayleaf, cinnamon)
  • Fresh cream- 2 tbsp(optional)


1. Marinate the chicken pieces with green  peas paste,yoghurt, onion paste, green chilli paste,tomatoes, ginger and garlic paste for 1/2 an hour.
2. In a pan, add oil and ghee. To it add, the whole spices. When it starts to crackle, add the marinated chicken and stir well.
3. Add cumin powder, turmeric powder, salt and sugar. Cover with a lid and let it cook for 10-15 minutes.
4. When the chicken is cooked, add the cream and mix well. It makes the dish more creamier. (I didn't add the cream. You can very well use it.)
5.Garnish with fresh, boiled green peas and green chillies. Serve hot with parathas, naan or pulao.


  1. dat's a different dish... innovative!

  2. That sounds different, yet so good Rita. I love shelling peas too :D

  3. Sounds familiar, I too am always triggered to pop the beans into my mouth. I have to agree with you, not only on the benefits of the beans but how you have incorporated the same into this stunning chicken dish. I am learning from your recipes. Many different styles of food, some totally different from the common ones I cook. Nicely done and next comes my fav statement, that being "I need rice" to be eaten together.
