Chicken Kulumbu (Simmi style)


Category : ,

I learnt this recipe from my friend Simmi and later customized it to my style! This chicken is a mix of tamil and kannada style. Very different but great with steaming hot white rice!

Chicken - 2 pounds
curry leaves
turmeric powder
chilli powder

Ingredients for the masala
Red Chilli - 10 nos
Corriander seeds - 1 tablespoon
Sombu - 1 teaspoon
Jeera - 1 teaspoon
Kus kus - 1 teaspoon
ginger - 1 inch piece
garlic - 3 pieces
pepper cornes - 1 teaspoon
raw rice - 1/2 teaspoon
urad dhal - 1/2 teaspoon
channa dhal - 1/2 teaspoon
big red onion - 1/2
coconut - 1/2 cup

Fry all the above ingredients in ghee or oil and then grind them into a smooth paste.

In a non stick pan add oil, curry leaves, chicken with some turmeric and salt. Fry for a while, then add a pinch of chilli powder. Cook well. When the chicken is about 3/4th cooked add the grinded masala and cook until completed done. The oil from the chicken should ooze out.

The total cook time would be about 1/2 hr.
