Chicken -1 kg(cut into small pieces and wash properly..)
Big Onion-4no(med size)
Ginger-1 (big piece)
Black Pepper-11/2 tbsp
Curry Leaves-3 strings
Garam Masala-1/2tsp+1/2 tsp
Chilly Powder-1 tbsp
Kashmiri chilli powder-3/4tbsp
Turmeric Powder-1/2 tsp
Hot water –
Take a non stick kadai , heat oil add curry leaves and saute
Then add ginger-garlic-pepper -fennel paste ( grind all these spices )..
Saute well..when raw smell goes add big onion slices ,small onion ,green chilli and salt..
When the onion become light brown in colour ,add all the masalas (chilly powders,turmeric powder,coriander powder and 1/2 tsp of garam masala ) and mix well and stir well until the raw smell of the masala goes
Then add tomato pieces a
Close the pan with a lid and allow it to cook for 10 minutes in a low flame stirring occasionally ..
Open the kadai and mix well ..
Then add cleaned chicken pieces into the masala and mix well.Close the pan and cook for 10 minutes in medium flame stirring occasionally ..
By that time u can see water coming out from the chicken,let the chicken cook in that water only ..
.In between open the kadai and stir well . U can check the salt..(If necessary add salt).When the chicken is cooked(chicken will be soft by that time ) add garam masala powder,curry leaves and half cup of hot water..
Cook for another few minutes or until the gravy become medium thick .
By that time u can see the gravy to be dark brown in colour ..
At this point add green chilli slits and tomato cuts and lots of curry leaves ..close the kadai for few minutes ..
Transfer in to the serving bowl and serve with appam,chapati,pathiri etc…
If u want u can add thick coconut milk in the end ..It increases the taste and best combination with pathiri.. 🙂
If u want u can season it with roasted small onions..
U can adjust the spice level according to ur taste .. 🙂
Actually the most diff thing is to cut onion when we make chicken or biriyani etc… ..Dont waste ur tears 😉 .So from now no more tears…!! So when we start making chicken or anyother recipe first peel the onion and wash them and keep it inside the freezer for min half an hour .And keep doing other works..Remember to close the onion( u can put them in a air tight paper bag or in a vessel with a lid) coz if we keep onion in the freezer with out closing,the smell will be remain in the freezer for long .. So after half an hour take it from the freezer and slice .. Now look at the magic…no more tears and very easy to cut ….!!!
Hope u will try this out …

YOUR CHICKEN CURRY IS VERY TASTY. MY HUSBAND SUNNY WAS VERY HAPPY FOR THIS TASTY CHICKEN CURRY.
To keep the onion from stinging your eyes, cut it under running cold
water. You could use cut it inside a wire basket, placed under a tap with
running water. That way the water won’t build up. The gas dissolves in
