Hello and welcome friends to my cooking space. Today I’m sharing a mix-n-match recipe of chicken, baby potatoes, and french beans to make this veg-cum-nonveg delight. It’s something you can cook when you have little ingredients left with you in your kitchen to churn out something tasty and healthier too. So let’ start with it—


  1. Chicken – 100 gms.
  2. French Beans – 1/2 cup.
  3. Baby Potatoes – 1/2 cup.
  4. Poppy Seeds and Yellow Mustard Paste – 1 tbsp.
  5. Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1 tbsp.
  6. Onions(chopped) – 1(big).
  7. Tomato Puree – 2 tbsp.
  8. Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp.
  9. Red Chilly Powder – 1 tsp.
  10. Coriander Powder – 1 tsp.
  11. Garam Masala – 1 tsp.
  12. Dry Mango Powder – 1 tsp.
  13. Salt – According to taste.
  14. Vegetable Oil – 2 tbsp.

FOR GARNISH —Kasuri Methi, Freshly chopped coriander and fresh cream.


Step 1 

Wash and chop the french beans. Boil and peel the baby potatoes.

Step 2

Take a kadhai. Add the given amount of oil to it. Now add the chopped onions. Add the ginger-garlic paste and fry. Now add the masalas i.e, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, dry mango powder,garam masala, and the tomato puree. Fry it for three minutes.

Step 3

Now add the chicken which you have washed and kept aside, the cut french beans and baby potatoes and fry them together with the masalas for ten minutes. Now add the poppy seed and yellow mustard paste and fry again. Care has to be taken not to fry the above paste for long as it may turn bitter in taste. Fry everything well and add water to make the gravy. Now pressure cook the whole dish till done. You can alternately make this dish adding any other veggies other than the ones used here and you can add dried mutton too replacing the fresh chicken as used here.

Step 4

Add kasuri methi and freshly chopped coriander to garnish. Add fresh cream too for the extra goodness. Enjoy.
