Recipe Details

  • Serves: 1 Person
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Recipe Ingredients

  • 300 grams - Chicken
  • 4 tbsp - Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp - Oil
  • 1/2 tbsp - Salt
  • 1 Glass - Water 300 ml
  • 1 large - Onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp - Black Peppercorns
  • 1/2 tbsp - Tumeric powder
  • 1-2 - Small Cinammon Sticks
  • 1 tbsp - Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 1 Cup - Coriander Leaves


1: Wash the chicken pieces well in running water and then coat them with lemon juice and turmeric powder. Keep this aside in the fridge for around 3-4 hours. Please ensure that you do not add a lot of turmeric powder. 1/2 tbsp is more than enough. Adding too much of turmeric powder is not good for health and also makes the soup taste bitter.

2: Now, in a cooker heat some oil and add the peppercorns, cinammon stick, chopped onion and ginger garlic paste in it. Saute this for 2 mins on a low flame or until the onions turn golden brown.

3: Next, add the marinated chicken pieces and Coriander leaves into the cooker and stir for about 30 secs. Add correct amount of salt and a glass of water.

4: Close the lid of the cooker and cook until 4 whistles are done. The first whistle should happen on a high flame and the rest on a medium flame/heat.

5: After 4 whistles, let the cooker cool down and then you can enjoy your home made Alni Chicken Soup.
