Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Clean the chicken pieces and chop them to desired sizes leaving the drumsticks as whole pieces with just some slits here and there.

Step 2

Rub turmeric powder and lemon juice thoroughly on the pieces. Keep aside till you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Step 3

Dry roast all ingredients:- black pepper, red chillies, poppy seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon sticks, curry leaves and grated coconut. Spread them on a plate to cool.

Step 4

In the small jar of the mixer grinder, grind all these ingredients without using water.

Step 5

Then add some water and grind them to a fine paste. Keep this ground paste aside.

Step 6

Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add the onions and curry leaves and green chilies and saute till the onions turn brown.

Step 7

Add ginger-garlic paste and saute till a nice aroma arises.

Step 8

Add tomatoes and cook covered on low heat till the tomatoes are pulpy.

Step 9

Once the tomatoes blend with the mixture, add the ground paste, chicken and 2 cups of water.

Step 10

Cover with the cooker lid and cook for 3 whistles, on high heat.

Step 11

Once the steam settles by itself, open the lid and cook till some of the water evaporates and you get the required consistency, which is a little more watery than a semi-gravy.

Step 12

Garnish Chettinad Chicken Curry with coriander leaves and serve hot with rice.

:- this Chettinad Chicken Curry will taste even better the next day.

Step 13

Happy cooking :)

The directions were easy to follow and the chicken turned out very soft; the masala was a little too strong (had a sweet smell -- probably from the cinnamon and cardamom), so next time, I would cut down on those spices.
