Step 1

Cut the chicken into small pieces. First smear it with a pinch of turmeric powder and salt. Keep this aside.

Step 2

In a frying pan, pour 1 tbsp of oil and heat the pan. Once it gets heated up, put the small onions and red chillies.

Step 3

As they turn light brown in color keep it aside.

Step 4

Then pour 1 tbsp oil and saute the coriander powder, pepper, garam masala, turmeric powder, salt and saute well. As the color changes, take it off the heat.

Step 5

Grind this mixture well along with the small onions and red chillies kept aside earlier. Marinate this mixture in the chicken for 30 minutes(the longer u keep the better the spices will get into the chicken).

Step 6

Now in the pan fry the big onion. When it turns golden brown, add the grated ginger , crushed garlic and saute well for 5 minutes. Then take it off.

Step 7

Now cook the marinated chicken in a pressure cooker. As it boils, add the fried onion, ginger and garlic to the curry.

Step 8

Do not pour much water into the gravy. Let it cool for few minutes.

Step 9

Once cooked, garnish with coriander leaves and curry leaves on top.

Step 10

Let the gravy get thicker. Increase or decrease the level of spices, oil and salt according to your taste buds. If u feel its too spicy, just add 2 tbsp of coconut milk at last. Serve hot with rice or Roti.Enjoy !!!!
