Sesame-Crusted Golmirch Chicken

Another gem from Priyadarshini’s blog is this Sesame-Crusted Black Pepper Chicken which I have followed to the Tee to get that perfect taste. Goes well with Paratha.


  • Chicken – 1 kg
  • Curd – 100 gms
  • Fresh cream – 100 ml
  • Garlic paste – 1 tbsp
  • Almond – 25-30
  • Cashew nuts – 15-20
  • Sesame Seed – 1 tbsp
  • Coarsely ground black pepper (fresh) – 2 tbsp
  • White oil – 4-5 tbsp
  • Green Chilli – as per taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of sugar  

Soak the nuts in water for some time. In a mixer make a course paste of the almonds and cashewnuts together.

Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients (including the nut paste), except the sesame seeds and keep for an hour. 

Preheat oven at 160 degree centigrade. Pour the marinated chicken into a baking tray and spread it out to form a single layer. Now sprinkle the sesame seeds generously on the chicken.

Bake at 160 degree for 60-70 minutes. For the last five minutes change oven settings to heat from the top to get a golden crust, faster.

Serve with Paratha.
