Clean the chicken and cut them into pieces.
Heat oil or butter in a large deep non-stick pan.
Add onions and saute` them.
Add cinnamon, ginger, powders and fry them until onions turn golden brown.
Make a paste of coriander leaves and red chilly powder in a blender using water.
Add this paste to the onions-spices mixture and fry for a couple of minutes.
Add chopped tomatoes & salt to the paste and cook on high heat for 3-4 minutes (till tomatoes are kind of mushy).
Add chicken pieces and a glass of water and bring to boil (takes about a minute or two).
When it starts to boil, lower the flame and allow it to cook for about 40 minutes. Stir occasionally.
:- Serve hot with parathas or plain rice.
This is an excellent curry. I used green chillies instead of red chilli powder. The curry is really tasty and everyone should really try it out.
good job, sanjay!!!
Hi..this seems to be a good one..
But I try different style which i think is better..dunno abt ur taste..Put chicken n GingerGarlic paste n some salt in pressure cooker ..One whistle on Low heat n then follow the procedure..u dont need to add water this way..n also if u use Green Chillies..in stead of red..gives restaurant style taste..takes just a few mintues...
