Mint Coconut Chicken Recipe.
I simply love this chicken. This mint coconut chicken is best eaten in winters but can be eaten at any time. This is very easy to cook chicken with the ingredients are easily available not only in a store near you but also online on EBay and Amazon.com. This chicken does not use much oil so it is healthy dish but despite low oil, it does retain its flavor and taste. Best thing is now we get puree of everything in the market. This saves lots of time which would have been taken if we had made puree of everything at home. This recipe needs pressure cooker to make it and since nearly every Indian kitchen has a pressure cooker so it should not be a problem. The best thing about pressure cooker is that not only it saves time but also it saves energy and use about 30% less energy than normal cooking. One of the best thing about it is you can manipulate the ingredients to suit your taste.
