  • Heat mustard oil over medium-high heat in your favorite skillet or Kadhai. Add panchforon & dried whole red chili.  Allow them to sizzle for a few seconds.
  • Next, add the roughly chopped onions. Saute until the onions change color.
  • Add the chicken pieces, turmeric powder & fry for few minutes. until the chicken becomes light golden color. You may turn the heat high.
  • Add the white poppy seeds paste & saute for some more time. Until oil oozes out & a beautiful aroma comes out.
  • Now, add little water (refer to the picture). Cover & simmer until the chicken is fully cooked.
  • Drizzle generous amount of extra virgin mustard oil before serving. Enjoy!


  1. Do not skip using the extra virgin mustard oil. Any other oil would highly tamper the taste of the dish.
  2. You made reduce or increase the amount of poppy seeds paste according to your preferences.
  3. Sauteing the Chicken until a light golden color is a must.
  4. However, you may add the poppy seeds paste to the sauteed chicken & saute it for a few minutes until the oil oozes out or you may also boil the chicken first ( covered) & add the poppy seeds paste half way through & then cover & simmer again for a couple of mins.  Either way works great.
  5. Always use white poppy seeds paste which is popularly known as Khas Khas or Posto in India.
