Chicken Fry

Hi bloggers, I found some time to write up another recipe this time it is spicy chicken fry.It is very nice to taste and simple to prepare. I have boneless chicken in the refrigerator so i am using it. Let us get into the making part of it.

1. Chicken 0.5 lb
2. onion - 1 medium sized ( chop into small pieces)
3. green chillies - 3
4. ginger and garlic paste - 2 tbsp
5. chilli powder
6. turmeric
7. garam masala - 1/2 tbsp
8. salt to taste
9. coriander leaves
10. curry leaves
11. oil - 4 tbsp
12. Bay leaves - 1
13. cloves - 2
14. cardamom - 2
15. cinnamon - 2
How to make:

First clean the chicken with water and keep it aside.

Take a cooking vessel and pour oil and add Indian spices ( clove, bay leaf, cardamom, cinnamon) with green chillies.

Next add chopped onions and curry leaves

Fry for some time until it turns golden yellow. Now add ginger/garlic paste

After adding ginger garlic paste fry it until the raw smell goes away.

Now add chicken to the onions and add chilli powder,salt,turmeric and garam masala powder to it.

Mix all these and let it cook for 15mins under slow flame with lid closed.

0pen the lid and check if the chicken is cooked or not. If the chicken is cooked then add water based on how you want it to be. Add more water if u want it to be gravy.Today I prepared it as dry that's why i did not add water.

Cook this until the water goes.

Finally take this in to the serving bowl and garnish with the coriander.

Serve with hot rice or roti.
