Yummy Chicken Curry

Chicken curry is a the most basic curry that must be on the menu when there is a gathering of people..a party or just over a weekend for a little something special..
It is very similar to the Spicy Mutton Curry..I posted a while back..

2 lbs Chicken

For marinade:
2 Tbsp Ginger Garlic paste
3 Tbsp Yoghurt/Curd

2 tsp Red Chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric

For Gravy/Masala:
1 Tbsp Coriander powder
4 cloves
3 Whole cardomom
1 Tbsp Dry coconut powder
2 tsp Black pepper powder

You can substitute the above with the regular GARAM MASALA also. I like to use this because its somewhat more healthy :)

1 Tbsp Oil
1 large Red Onion
Salt to taste

Wash the chicken thoroughly a few times. Then, add all the ingredients for marinade and marinate atleast for 30 mins.

Chop the red onion. You may choose to puree it also.
Heat up a wide heavy bottomed pan, add the oil, when its ready, add the cloves and cardomom. Then add the onion and stir to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan. Saute the onions about 5-10 minutes until they are golden brown in color.
Now, add in the marinated chicken. Stir again. Stir the whole mixture for about 5 minutes. You may add some water if needed, but chicken really oozes water. So, its not required. Cover with a lid and let it cook on medium heat until almost done.

TIP: Be sure not to overcook it. Chicken cooks really fast.

Add the salt, coriander powder, black pepper powder and dry coconut powder. Stir and let it simmer until the desired consistency is reached. Garnish with coriander and sprinkle some lime juice if you like.

Serve hot with Rice/Chapathi/Puri. Serves 4 people.
