Ginger – 2 x 2” piece, chopped fine
Cardamom / Ealakka – 6
Cloves / Grambu – 6
Yogurt – 1 cup
Coriander leaves- 2 tbsp, chopped (optional)
Oil – 2 tbsp (original recipe½ cup of oil, but I always try to reduce oil in my curries, so use accordingly)
Grind garlic and mix it with yogurt and keep it aside.
Grind coconut and soaked cashew nuts to a fine paste and keep aside.
Grind 1 onion, ginger, chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin seeds together to a fine paste.
Thinly slice remaining 2 onions.
Heat oil in a frying pan, add sugar and let it brown. Into this add cardamom and cloves and sliced onion and sauté until onion becomes golden brown.
Add turmeric powder and ground masala paste and stir fry nicely until the raw taste of masala goes. Now add yogurt mixed with garlic paste and sauté well till the water dries up. Into this add tomato pieces and sauté well.
Now add chicken pieces and coconut- cashew paste and sauté well until raw smell of the masala goes.
Add enough salt and ½ cup water and cover the pan with a lid and cook chicken on medium low heat until the gravy thickens and the chicken pieces are cooked well. Mix in coriander leaves and serve hot with Indian flat bread or rice.
