Chicken Gravy - My brother's way;)

I felt too lazy last sunday and wanted to eat out. It was drizzling and my hubby told we will buy-back. So went out and to our disappointment, Briyani got finished earlier than usual :(

Called my brother at home and told him, he said buy chicken, I will prepare. So bought some chicken and went to take rest;)

He prepared chicken gravy for chappathis. It was very tasty and aroma was amazing:)

For me, it will be always taste great, if someone cooks and feed me ;) My hubby said, the masala was better than what I prepare :(

So here goes my brother's recipe......:)

Chicken - 400 gms
Onions - 2, chopped
Tomatoes - 2, chopped
Green Chillies - 3, chopped
Bay leaf - a small piece
Chilli powder - 1 tablespoon (or as spicy required)
Coriander leaves - few, for garnishing
Oil - 2-3 tablespoons
Salt to taste

For Masala paste:
Fennel seeds - 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Ginger - 1 inch long
Garlic - 3-4 cloves
Cardamom - 1
Cloves - 1-2
Cinnamom stick - a small piece
Green chillies - 2, small
Coriander leaves - few

Grind all the masala ingredients without or less water to a fine paste.

Heat oil in a pan. Add bay leaf, onions, green chillies and fry until onions turn golden brown.

Add chopped tomatoes and fry until they are cooked well.

Then add washed chicken, grinded paste, chilli powder, salt to taste and mix well.
Cook it covered until chicken becomes soft.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with chappathis or rice.

Cooking time - 20 - 30 minutes
Serves 3 persons
