Though I have posted a butter chicken recipe earlier, I had been looking for a simple recipe and found a similar one in two or three different websites! This is so easy to prepare, no frying needed.You can serve this thick gravy with rice, roti, parotta or bread!
Chicken pieces 1 1/2 cups
onion 2 medium sizes
tomato 1 big ripe
garlic paste 1 tsp / 3 big garlic cloves
ginger paste 1 tsp / 1 " ginger piece
garam masala 1/2 tsp
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
chilly powder 2 tsp - used kashmiri chilli powder
turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
coriander powder 2 tsp
curd 2 tsp
butter 1 Tb sp
water 1 1/4 cup
coriander leaves chopped 1 Tbsp
How to prepare
Clean chicken pieces.
Small boneless pieces of chicken will be good.
Grind together tomato , almonds and cashews together in 1/2 cup water.
Heat little oil in a pan, saute onions until transparent.
Add garlic and ginger paste.
Stir well and add all the powders.
Stir for few seconds and soon add chicken pieces with salt.
Mix well until the chicken pieces are coated with the masala , and continue doing this until the color of chicken start changing.
Pour the tomato-almond-cashew solution into this with curd and remaining water.
Check salt and allow to cook until the chicken is done.
When it cooked well and oil separates, remove from fire.
Put 1 Tb butter and coriander leaves on top.
