Green chilly chicken is a simple and easy chicken curry yet slightly spicy; made with green chilly and a bunch of greens. A perfect side dish for roti/Indian flatbread, bhatura, plain rice, or even just plain bread.
Mint leaves, coriander leaves, and green chillies are the base for this curry and yogurt make the chicken tender and juicy.....lastly, butter makes it more flavorsome. A very subtle curry with a difference.
This recipe was handed down from my neighbor friend Shini; who is an expert in Malabar cuisine, I made some changes to suit my taste...

In an iron kadai or a nonstic pan, heat 1 tbsp butter....yes you heard me right...its good old butter for this curry, yet if you are wary of butter use half and half (oil-butter).
Add the chopped onions and curry leaves. You do not need to brown the onions....just lightly sauteing them is enough.
Add the cooked green chicken into this....mix well and then add the half cup curd.
And mix well....allow it to simmer for sometime and let the curry becomes a bit dry.
Serve with rice, roti.
