Chicken Ginger

High flame cooking and fiery flavors are found in many Pakistani dishes. Chicken ginger is one such dish, boldly highlighting the flavor of ginger. We recently realized that we have always (only) had Chicken Ginger at restaurants. So the MR. took it upon himself to add it to our Kitchen’s menu. And when the MR. decides to go on a mission, we know he’ll be successful. Hence, this dish is here to stay!


  1. Chicken – 250g
  2. Ginger (chopped) – 2 tbsp
  3. Tomato – 1 medium
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Garam masala powder – 1/2 tsp
  6. Coriander powder – 1 tsp
  7. Cumin powder – 1 tsp
  8. Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  9. Ginger-garlic paste – 1 tsp
  10. Ginger (julienne) – 2 tsp
  11. Green chilli – 1


  • In a blender, puree tomato along with salt and garam masala powder.
  • In a wok, heat oil (about 4 tbsp) over high flame.
  • Add chopped ginger and sautè until oil is fragrant (about 1 minute).
