This is typically my style of cooking chicken. Very quick, less work, simply delicious and always appreciated! Doesn't this sound good. Try it and let me know your comments!


Ingredients for the Masala
Red Chilli - 10 nos
Corriander seeds - 1 tablespoon
turmeric powder - little
cloves - 3
cinnamon - 1 inch piece
cardamon - 2
ginger - 1 inch piece
garlic - 3 pieces
Sombu - 1 teaspoon
Jeera - 1 teaspoon
kus kus - 1 teaspoon
pepper - 2 teaspoon or more as per taste
small onions - 10
Curry leaves - few
coconut - 1/2 cup

Fry the above ingredients in ghee and grind them into a smooth paste. I call this the brown masala and make them in batches and freeze them. Once this is ready, you can cook this curry with no effort ;-)


Other ingredients
Chicken - 2 pounds (with the bones)
Mustard seeds
Urad dhal
curry leaves
big read onion - 1
very ripe plum tomatoes - 1
turmeric powder - a pinch
chilli powder - a pinch



Method
In a non-stick pan, add mustard seeds, urad dhal, curry leaves, finely chopped onions and tomatoes. Fry well and then add the cut chicken pieces with some turmeric and salt. Fry well for a few minutes, then add a pinch of chilli powder. When the chicken is baout 3/4th cooked, add the grinded masala and cook for another 15-20 minutes!
