Method

For Green Chutni

In a food processor blend together fresh coriander, green chili, garlic, and lemon juice with a little water to make a fine paste.

For Foil Chicken

In a bowl marinate the chicken with National Tikka Masala, National Ginger Paste, and National Garlic Paste; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Heat a pan; add the oil and cook the marinated chicken for 5 minutes on a medium heat or till it changes color. Keep aside.

Cut square pieces of aluminum foil and place 1 piece of chicken and a small amount of potatoes, carrots, and green peas. Pour 1.5 tablespoon of the prepared green chutney and wrap it like a pouch.

In a steamer place the aluminum-wrapped chicken parcels; cover with a lid and steam on a low heat for 20 minutes.

Ideal for parties and best served with National Ketchup.
