Vedas Chicken Curry

Me and my hubby have been to our friends place last weekend for a small get together. During our gathering we enjoyed yummy food made by my friends Ravali and Veda and Im happy to share this chicken curry recipe made by one of my friend Veda. We all liked it and hope you like it too!!!!

chicken - 1kg
oil - 4tbsp
shaijeera- 1/2 tbsp
Indian chillies - 5
cinnamon - 2 inch sticks
cardamom - 2
cloves - 3
onions -2 large
garam masala - 1/4 tbsp
turmeric - 1 teaspoon
dry coconut powder-3tbsp
chili powder- 1/2tbsp
ginger garlic paste- 2 tbsp
coriander powder
salt to taste

First Grind onions. Marinate chicken by mixing the Onion paste, garam masala, chili powder, coriander powder, ginger garlic paste, salt, 3 tablespoons of oil. let it stay for 15 mins. Heat oil and add shai jeera, curry leaves, chillies, cardamon, cinnamon, cloves, turmeric powder and wait until the shai jeera splatters. Then add chicken. Always cover the vessel while cooking chicken, this will make your chicken to cook fast and makes it to remain tender. It took about 15 minutes to cook the chicken, keep stirring the chicken in between. After the chicken is well cooked take the lid off and mix coconut powder. Let it cook until its raw flavor is gone. If you want it to be a fry then reduce the flame and fry it till it gets finely cooked. If you want to make a curry add 20-25ml water and cook it. If you want to make a chicken soup add some more water and boil until soup is thick. Finally garnish with little cilantro and serve with rice/roti.
Note: Curry in kadai( special type of vessel used in India) tastes much better than curry in non stick pan. So, I prefer using Kadai than a non stick pan.
Isnt it lovely version! Hope you all like this recipe, you can mail me your recipes if you want your recipes to be published in my blog. mail to foodblognews(at)gmail(dot)com.
