This chicken gravy I made especially for Thosai (Dosa). I grind the masala powders myself rather using chicken curry powder which available in the market. I just follow my instinct. It turn out really hot and spicy and perfect for Those (Dosa). Before i forgot the recipe let me jot it down in my diary for future use.
Chicken preferably 500 gm
spices such as cloves(4), cardamom(4), cinnamon,
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
3 small onions
3 clove garlic
1 inch ginger
1 green chilli
1 tomato chopped
Masala powder :
10 dry chillies
2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp fennel seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp black peppercorns
Dry blend all the spices for masala powder in blender to fine powder. Then mix with garam masala powder and turmeric powder. Add little water to make it paste. Keep aside.
Blend both onions, ginger, garlic and green chili with little water.
Heat oil in pan. Add spices such as cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. Let it fry till fragrant.
Add curry leaves.
Add onion-ginger-garlic paste. Saute until raw smell goes off. Let the oil oozes out.
Now add masala powder paste. Fry for few minutes.
Add chicken pieces and potato. Add some water. Cover with lid. Let the chicken cooked.
After 10 minutes, remove the lid. Let the gravy boils to thicken. At this point add tomato. If preferred may add 1 tsp kas kas as well. Simmer the gravy in slow fire till it thickens.
Add salt to taste. Add another sprig of curry leaves.
Turn off fire.
Serve with Those (Dosa).
