1-2 green chillies, depending on your spice requirements (I use only 1 though)
1 whole chicken – de skinned, cut into 8-12 parts, washed thoroughly
1/2 stick cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoon ginger garlic paste (have this prepared in advance)
1 tablespoon natural, non flavored yoghurt
4 tablespoon meat curry powder( preferably BaBa’s brand), else Garam Masala might do, hough not the best result
1/4 teaspoon of tumeric powder
3/4 teaspoon of chilli powder
1 teaspoon of ground cumin powder
1 teaspoon of ground black pepper powder
1/4 teaspoon ground corriander powder
2 big potatoes quartered
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped corriander
5 tablespoon evaporated milk
Heat a heavy pot and then pour in the oil. Throw in the cinnamon stick, cardamons, cloves and wait till it starts popping in the heated oil (beware and don’t stare at it to avoid any splattering onto your face). Now add in the sliced onions and stir for a minute or 2. Then wait for it to turn golden and fragrant, add in the tomatoes, green chillies, ginger garlic paste and saute. Now you will get a nice fragrance of the sauteed ingredients.
Its now time to add in the chicken pieces, stir in for a minute. Then add in the spices, turmeric, chilli powder, curry powder, cumin, black pepper, coriander. Add in salt and potatoes. Finally add in the yoghurt, stir in, add some water (for some gravy add in 600ml water else add in 450ml for a thicker gravy). Every 5-10minutes open and check for water, remember to stir the gravy as it may thicken and stick in the pot.
Once your chicken is cooked, add in the evaporated milk, stir in the gravy and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
Now you are ready to serve it hot with rice or even bread. 🙂
