NADAN CHICKEN CURRY AND AN AWARD

Photobucket

If you think about curry, it has a lot of variation from state to state of India. Even this dish has a lot ways to prepare it. Tried this, it is creamy and spicy, loved by my children. Used less coconut milk but you could add more if you want. This curry is best served with naan, prata or even rice.

INGREDIENTS

1 kg (2.2 lbs) chicken pieces
1 cup sliced onion
1 tablespoon ginger and garlic paste
2 tomatoes chopped
1 and 1/2 tablespoons coriander powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon aniseed powder
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon pepper powder
2 in cinnamon stick
5 cardamoms
2 green chili slit
1/2 to 1 cup coconut milk
3 tablespoons cooking oil
2 potato cut into small
curry leaves
lemon juice
salt to taste

METHOD

1. Marinate cleaned chicken pieces with lemon juice and salt.

2. Heat the oil, fry the cinnamon and cardamoms until fragrant. Add onion and curry leaves, fry until light brown.

3. Add ginger and garlic, stir for a few minutes then add the tomatoes, cook until pulpy.

4. Now add the spice powder, water and green chili, cover pot until boiling.

5. Add the chicken and water, stir until half done then add the potato.

6. Once potato is soft add coconut milk and bring to boil again, continue to stir.

7. Remove from heat and ready to be served.

Hi, everyone...
Thanks so much your sweet comment and wishes, this is really a great boost for me...

Nida..yes, it is quite common to add lemon in the cooking of Indian dishes since it gives really tasty sour taste but in this recipe it's used to remove unwanted smell and at the same time tenderize the chicken.

Lady of Leisure...trying to cut down fat in cooking..he..he..
