CHICKEN MASALA




This Chicken Masala is on top of my family's favorite recipe and I will prepare on every other week together with pulao,naan or ordinary bread. It's very easy to cook and taste great. For milder taste you can reduce the quantity of chili powder used.

CHICKEN MASALA RECIPE

500 g ;chicken cut into big pieces
2 tbsp meat curry powder
2 tbsp chili powder
3 large onions chopped
2 large tomatoes chopped
coriander leaves
1 tbsp ginger paste
1 tbsp garlic paste
salt, oil, cinnamon stick

METHOD

1. Clean chicken, marinate with ginger, garlic paste and salt for at least 30 mins..

2. Heat the oil, add in cinnamon,cardamon and onions, fry until onion slightly brown.

3. Add in tomatoes, fry until soft then add the chili powder, curry powder, coriander leaves stir until thicken, pour 1/2 cup water, stir and cover pot, cook with small flame.

4. When steam emits from the pot, open the lid and add the chicken, stir again. Cook chicken until soft..

5. Sprinkle coriander leaves. Chicken is ready to be served. Best eaten with pulao, naan or bread.
