Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Clean and cut chicken into small pieces.

Step 2

:- If using mutton, then cook it in a cooker with some turmeric powder, ginger, salt and water.

Step 3

Heat up a pan or a kadai.

Step 4

Add cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, coriander seeds, dry red chillies, coconut pieces, peppercorns, masala powder, garlic, ginger, small onions, fennel seeds and poppy seeds one by one.

Step 5

Fry them on a medium flame, until it starts to emit a nice aroma.

Step 6

When they turn red in colour, switch off the flame.

Step 7

:- Don`t fry too much and burn everything as it will spoil the taste of gravy.

Grind the above into a smooth paste adding sufficient water.

Step 9

Heat oil in the same pan or kadai.

Step 10

Add onions and curry leaves and saute.

Step 11

Add green chillies followed by tomato and fry for a while.

Step 12

Add drained chicken or mutton.

Step 13

Add turmeric powder and salt.

Step 14

Add a little water and mix well.

Step 15

Cook for 10 mins.

Step 16

Add the masala paste and mix well.

Step 17

Cover and cook for 15 mins.

Step 18

Awesome recipe! I was born in Kerala and was brought up on a vege diet! Finally I have found a great meat dish to make for friends and family in Australia! Here, it`s hard to get fresh coconut, so I used 1/2 cup of dessicated coconut.
