Yield : 4 servings

Ingredients :

To marinate :
  • Chicken : 1 lb
  • Turmeric powder : 1/4 teaspoon
  • Chilli powder : 1/2 teaspoon
  • Coriander powder : 2 teaspoon
  • Ginger garlic paste : 2 teaspoon
  • Salt : to taste
For spice powder :
  • Cloves : 4 nos
  • Cinnamon : 1" long
  • Cardamom : 4 nos
  • Whole black pepper : 1 teaspoon
Other ingredients :
  • Oil : 2 tablespoon
  • Onions : 3 nos
  • Green chillies : 2 nos
  • Curry leaves : 1 sprig
  • Cilantro : to garnish

Instructions :

  1. Preparations :
    • Clean, wash and marinate the chicken with ingredients listed under 'to marinate' for at least 30 minutes.
    • Dry roast the ingredients listed under 'for spice powder' and powder it finely.
    • Grind one onion into fine paste and keep it aside.
    • Then slice the  remaining onions, slit the green chillies and keep it ready.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet, add sliced onions, slit green chillies and curry leaves and fry till the onions turn slightly golden.
  3. Now add the ground onion and fry for a minute, then add the marinated chicken and little water (about 1/4 cup) cover and cook in medium low flame / low heat. The chicken will emit water, so cook till the chicken is done and all the water is evaporated. Keep mixing and scrapping the bottom of the skillet, so that it is not burnt.
  4. Then when the chicken is cooked and it is dry, then add the spice powder and mix well and turn off the heat.
  5. Garnish with cilantro and serve.

Notes :

  • I have adjusted the spice level (amount of chilli powder, pepper and green chillies) to suit our taste buds. You can increase or decrease as per your preference.
  • Optionally, you can add lemon juice (about 2 teaspoon) too while marinating.
