Instructions
  1. Clean the chicken thoroughly.
  2. Add sufficient salt and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly. Remove excess liquid.
  3. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, ginger garlic paste and the curd/yoghurt and marinate for 1/2 hour or so.

  8. Add a portion of the paste and saute for 1 minute.
  9. Add the chicken (around 1 - 1.5 tbsp) depending on the spice level you wish.
  10. Add sufficient water and salt to cook the chicken thoroughly.
  11. Once the chicken is cooked, add the coconut milk and cook for another 4-5 minutes.
  12. Garnish with coriander leaves.
  13. :- You may add vegetables like Green beans, potato and carrot (individually or a combination) cut into large pieces along with the chicken to cook to make it a wholesome meal.
