Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Make about a cup and half of thin coconut milk and one cup of thick coconut milk and keep aside.

Step 2

Heat oil in a pan.

Step 3

Fry green chillies, cloves, ginger, and curry leaves for about half a minute.

Step 4

Add the sliced onions and fry till they turn soft. Do not let them turn brown.

Make a little space in the middle of the pan and heat the garam masala for about 20 seconds.

Fry together with the onions.

Step 7

Add the pepper corns.

Step 8

Add the chicken pieces and potato and stir fry for a minute.

Step 9

Pour thin coconut milk into the pan and stir for a minute.

Now you can either transfer the stew to a deeper pan or a pressure cooker.

Step 11

If you are using a cooker, transfer contents and cook for about two whistles. Let the cooker cool.

Step 12

If you are using a deeper pan, make sure chicken is soft and well cooked.

Step 13

:- If there is too much water, cook without the lid, till the gravy just covers the chicken pieces.

Step 14

Take it off the stove and add thick coconut milk till you have a nice thick white stew.

Step 15

:- Do not continue to cook with the milk added because it may separate.

Step 16

Sprinkle pepper, check for salt and your stew is ready.

Step 17

:- Substitute cut vegetables like Beans, Peas Carrots, mushrooms and Cauliflower and you have Vege Stew.

Step 18

:- Substitute beef or lamb , you have the named stew.

Hi Rashmi. Imade this yest 26.09.2007. came out very well. Just 2 points though. You have not mentioned when to put garlic (which i added alongwith the ginger) and I suggest the potatoes are added a little later in the curry as it got mashed/cooked too much when I put it at the same time as the chicken. But it was awesome...thanks.

U can make this dish with 1/2 KG or 1 KG Chicken. Increase the amount of spice according to the amount of chicken.....thats common sense!!!! :)
