Hariyali Kebab

Chicken lovers would definitely be kebab lovers. Hariyali Chicken Kabab (Green Chicken Kabab) is one of the most famous Indian Kabab dish generally served in almost every Indian Restaurant. Boneless chicken pieces are marinated in the mixture of Curd, Coriander and Mint Leaves and grilled in oven.

After a long search, finally i was impressed with this Easy & Simple Hariyali Chicken and tried to make it. The flavors and fragrance of rich green vegetables inculcates the aroma in this kebab dish. In Hindi Hariyali means Greenery/Green and Hariyali Chicken Kabab means chicken kebab with Greens Paste.

I must say that this Hariyali Chicken Kabab turned out awesome, when I made it with proper ingredients. You could cook these on a regular barbecue or in the oven but if you have metal skewers, use them. Rotating the skewered chicken over hot coals cooks them to perfection, nicely charred on the exterior and moist and tender in the centre.


Chicken (boneless pieces) - 500 grams
Coriander leaves - 3 bunch.
Onion - 1/4 cup.
Curry leaves - 2-3 springs.
Mint leaves - half bunch.
Green chili - 6 number.
Pepper powder - 1 tea spoon.
Oil - as required.
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tea spoon.
Turmeric powder - pinch.
Coriander powder - 1 tablespoon.
Salt - to taste.
Thick curd - 1/2 cup.


  • Blend coriander leaves, mint leaves ,green chilies, curry leaves, salt in a fine paste and keep a side.
  • Mix together curd, the ground mixture, all the other powders.
  • Mix the chicken pieces in this curd mixture and marinate it for about 4-5 hours. Best to refrigerate.
  • Soak the wooden skewers in normal water for about 4-5 minutes. Apply some oil on the skewers and arrange the pieces of chicken onto the skewers. Spread some more oil on top of the chicken pieces.
  • Preheat the oven at degrees 200C for 5 minutes and place the skewers in the oven. Leave to grill for about 15-18 minutes.
  • Keep checking and turn the skewer sticks to cook evenly from all the sides. Grill till the kabab is well done. 

Remove the kabab from the skewers and arrange on the serving plate.
