Directions

Add enough water to cover the chicken.

Cover and allow it to cook.

Step 11

While the chicken is cooking, saute the potatoes and the tomatoes in another pan.

Step 12

Add it to the curry and continue cooking it with the lid on.

Step 13

Dry roast cardamom, fennel, cinnamon and cloves.

Step 14

Grind them together into a smooth paste and add it to the curry and cook with the lid off.

Once the gravy gets a little thicker, add the coconut milk.

Step 16

Remove from flame.

I tried this recipe with around 700 gms. of chicken and scaled down the ingredients, except the dry masala. It came out fantastic. Served with Appam and was great!! Thanks for the recipe. This is going to be one of my favourite chicken curries now!

The dish looks / tastes great! My 19 y.o. tried it, as he is trying to learn a few authentic indian dishes so that he can cook something for himself at Uni. He was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. I told him to cut down on quantities of all the spicy ingredients and it was perfectly suited to his taste. I feel that it needs a squeeze of lemon juice to enhance it further. Thanks for sharing.
