Make cuts all over the chicken.
Grind the coconut well and keep aside.
Grind coriander, turmeric, chillies, spices and the broken nuts together.
Mix this and a little of the salt in some curd, spread all over the chicken and marinate for 2 hrs.
Melt ghee in a pan and fry the onions to golden brown colour and keep it aside.
Fry the chicken evenly.
Blend the ground coconuts, curd and 3 cups of water and mix it with the chicken.
Add the fried onions and close the lid and simmer over a slow fire turning it from time to time till the chicken is soft and the gravy is thick.
:-Cut into pieces and serve.
I tried this recipe and enjoyed this. It has a totally different smell must be from the cashews and the ghee used. I have a suggestion not to use too much of the grated coconut...maybe half a cup ..but overall I really liked it...Thanks Ms.Varghese
