Directions to prepare Chicken Paralen with Tomato

Marinate the cleaned chicken pieces with ingredients listed under ‘for marination’ & keep in the refrigerator for half an hour. Shallow fry the marinated chicken pieces till it becomes golden brown & the chicken is half cooked. Remove the chicken pieces from the pan. To the same pan, add sliced onions & salt. Cook till onions become golden brown in color. Add ginger & garlic paste & cook for 3-4 minutes. Add coriander, red chilli, garam masala & fennel powders. Fry for a minute or so or till the oil starts appearing. Add sliced tomatoes & curry leaves. Mix well & when tomatoes become soft add fried chicken pieces & give a good stir. Add thick coconut milk & cover & cook till the gravy is very thick. The chicken pieces should be cooked well & coated well with masala. This curry has a semi gravy consistency.Serve hot with rice/roti/appam.

I used sunflower oil for this, but I guess coconut oil works best & I’m planning to use it next time. I didn’t fry the chicken pieces, I just cooked the marinated chicken pieces in a non stick pan with very little oil.
