Karaikudi Kozhi varuval / Chicken fry

Hmm, hi friends, here i am yet with another spicy and tasty dish. The karaikudi chicken varuval is a fantastic dish, where the chicken is first marinated with spices , and then cooked with onion and coconut milk. The addition of curry leave gives an fantastic flavour. So here is the recipe just for you...

Ingredients :

Chicken - 500 grm ( Boneless and skinless. Wash and clean the chicken and chop it into small pieces)
Cumin seads - 1/2 tsp
Big Onion - 1 ( chopped finely)
Sombu - 1/2 tsp
curry leaves - 1 stem
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
trumeric powder - 1/2 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
Salt - To taste
Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Oil - 5 tsp
Coconut Milk - 1/2 cup
Lemon juice - 2 tsp

Preparation :

* Take the cleaned chicken in a bowl, add the chilly powder, turmeric powder, Coriander Powder , salt and yorkut. Mix all together very well.
* Keep the marianted chicken in the fridge for atleast 1/2 hr.
* In the mean while, take a pan, add oil, then add the cumin seeds, sombu and fry to few mins.
* Then add the chopped onions and fry till golden brown.
* Add the curry leaves and fry for few mins.
* Add the marinated chicken, and mix every thing well.
* Sprinkle some water and cook till the chicken is cooked well. ( Dont add more water, as the chicken itself leaves out some water), at this time, check for the taste.
* After the chicken is cooked well, add the coconut milk and mix well and cook until it is dry.
* Finally squeeze the lemon and mix well, and keep frying it until it becomes very dry, and the oil comes out.
