Step 1

Thaw the tyson chicken thighs, which we get from American grocery stores.

Step 2

:- Or transfer the tyson chicken from the freezer and place it in the refrigerator just 1 night before the day you want to cook. It will thaw by itself.

Step 3

Remove the skin, cut the chicken and clean it well.

Step 4

Marinate with ginger-garlic paste, chilly powder, salt, lime juice, sour buttermilk, coriander powder and cumin powder for 1 hour.

Step 5

Heat oil in a pan or a kadai.

Step 6

Add chopped onions and fry, till they turn golden brown(transparent).

Step 7

Add a few curry leaves, if desired.

Step 8

:- Take care to avoid burning of onions.Your curry tastes good only if your onions are fried to correct level without overcooking/undercooking.

Step 9

Add the marinated chicken to it and cook for 10 mins on a low flame.

Step 10

Grind together poppy seeds, cloves and cinnamom with some water into a smooth paste.

Step 11

Add the above paste into the chicken and cook for 5 more mins, until it becomes half dry.

Step 12

Add a cup of water and mix well.

Step 13

Pressure cook upto 2 whistles.

Step 14

:- After 10 mins., see if any extra water is left. If so, cook it on a medium flame for 5 mins, until water evaporates and forms a thick gravy.

Step 15

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Step 16

:- Serve with chicken curry with Rice or Biriyani.

Step 17

:- For those who stay in USA:-
Thighs take lots of time to cook. So I suggest you to pressure cook. You can as well cook it in the normal pan with extra water. But it takes time. Thighs give a real good taste similar to our chicken curry which our moms prepare in india. Its yummy.
