This recipe I got off from a TV show and came out delicious.Very easy to make and to top it all it's a one pot dish.What more do you want? .I have tried mutton version of this and will post that later.
Chicken - 1 whole chicken (cut into small pieces)
Onion - 2 Onions(sliced and then cut across)
Tomato - 3 (medium sized, chopped)
Green chillies - 6-8 (slit across)
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 2 tbsp
Daniya/Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as needed
Oil -4 tbsp
Curry leaves - a lot (atleast 2 springs)
Clean the chicken and try not to leave any water behind after you clean.Mix all the ingredients except for oil in a pan with your hand.Make sure to mash some of the tomato pieces, green chillies. Do not add any water.
If you want and have time, leave this mixture for abt 15- 30 minutes to marinate.I didn't do it, but it came out very tasty.
Start cooking the chicken mixture in a medium low flame with lid covered for about 5-8 minutes.And when you see water is coming out of the chicken, remove the lid and start cooking.Once you see enough gravy is in the dish, increase the flame and keep stirring the dish to avoid burning.Once the dish is almost dry, add 4 tbsp of oil and keep roasting the dish without burning.When it reaches roast consitency, swich off the heat and garnish with more curry leaves.Serve with Roti or rice/dal.
Note : I made it very spicy, please adjust your spice as per your taste.
