Spicy Chicken Curry7:48 PM
When it comes to making a spicy dish, i always opt for chicken. However you make them, the result turns out to be good always. It was raining here in CA yesterday and sankar decided to work from home. So i thought of preparing a spicy chicken for him. He is more of a health concerned person, eating 6 meals everyday with grilled chicken and lots of veggies. However he has allotted one day in week for eating normal food, like this one. I call it a free day as i have to cook one meal unlike the remaining days cooking three different meals [ including the little one ].
This is simple curry with not a lot of ingredients. Even the spices can be adjusted according to your taste.
The chicken requires a little marinade, other than that it does not take a lot of time and work.
Now to the recipe,
1 cup onions, sliced
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
2 tbs oil
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp garam masala powder [ optional ]
salt to taste
corinader leaves, chopped for garnish
1 tsp whole Pepper
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
3 tbs chili powder
3 garlic cloves
1 piece ginger
1 tbs coriander powder
2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 inch cinnamon stick
Make a marinade by grinding all the ingredients together into a fine paste.
Mariande the chicken pieces and leave it for atleast 1/2 hour.
[if using a chicken thigh, make small slits for the marinade to enter ].
Heat oil in a pan, add the onions and saute till translucent.
Add the ginger garlic paste and saute for few minutes.
Now add the chopped tomatoes and cook it they turn mushy.
Add the chicken to the tomato mixture along with salt and water.

If you prefer a dry consistency,then reduce the amount of water.
Finish it off with corinader and garam masala.
