Chicken Curry

There are different ways to make a gravy, for the chicken dish & this one, i learnt from my friend Jaya. It comes out great & i've made it for 2 parties & it was a great hit!

Chicken - 1 whole (cut into medium size pieces)
Lime Juice- 2 tsps
Cinnamon, Cloves, Bayleaf - Few
Curry leaves - few
Oil - 5 tbspns
Pepper powder - 1tsp
Onion - 1 (chopped finely)
Tomato - 2

Grind these to a fine paste:

Red Chillies - 6
Coriander Seeds - 1tbspn
Jeera - 1 tsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 2tsp
Onion - 3no
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp


1. Marinate the chicken with turmeric,pepper, half of the ground masala & lime juice for atleast an hour.

2. In a cooker, add oil, Cinnamon, cloves, bayleaf & onions. Fry till the onions are almost brown.

3. Now add the other half of the ground masala, tomatoes & fry till its well done. Takes about 10 mts.

4. Then put in the marinated chicken pieces & fry them all well for 5-7 mts.

5. Add water - 1 cup, curry leaves & salt, stir in well & close & cook for just one whistle.

Your Chicken curry is ready to be served.. goes with rice or rotis!
