Madras Chicken

Hi friends, i know it has been very long time, Its all because of my little princess, who always keep me busy all the time. And particularlly with the christmas nearing , she is having a great time participating in the pre-school production. She was a little snow man. Hooo...just bless her. Well, coming back to the recipe, Madras chicken is one of Chef Dhamodharan's recipe. I just made few alteration to suit my taste. In this recipe chicken is cooked with spices, which really gives a fantastic taste. The spices really worked very well here. The garlic just brings out the fantastic flavour, which in turn pushes us to eat more......( aware if you are on diet). hehehehehe. is the recipe just for you.

Ingredients :

Chicken - 500grms ( Boneless , chopped in small pieces)
Big onion - 1 ( Chopped finely chopped)
Tomato - 1 and half ( Chopped finely)
Dry Red Chilly - 5
Pepper - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Garlic - 10 pallu
Ginger - small piece
Curry leaves - 1 stem ( Optional )
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Oil - to fry
Cashew nuts - 5
cloves - 1
cinnamon stick - 1 small piece
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Salt - To taste

Preparation :

* Clean the chicken , cut into small pieces, and then marinate with salt and turmeric powder and keep it in the fridge for atleast 1 hrs.

* In the mean time, add dry red chilly, mustard seeds, cinnamon stick, cloves, garlic and ginger in the mixer grinder and grind it into fine taste by adding some water.

* Now take the marinated chicken, and fry it in the oil. Keep it aside.

*Now in the same oil, add the chopped onion and fry well. If you are using the curry leaves, then add it now.

* Then Add the grinded masala to the onion, and fry for few mins till the raw smell disappears.
* Then add the chopped tomatoes, fried chicken and coriander leaves and mix well.
* Grind the cashew nuts into paste by adding water, and add it now.

* Then add the water to it. ( The water i added in the pictures looks white, its just beacause i poured it in the cup in which the cashew paste for kept....Not to waste the rest you see.........( Just what our mom's do ).....), So dont get confused with it please.

* Add the salt, and cook.
