Chicken Curry / Chicken Amti  

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

My mom has a touch of magic to her hands. The dish would look really simple, the recipe would look simple too. But the taste is great. It has always been like that. Most of my recipes are from my mom and you would understand its true if you tried them. She never ceases to amaze me, in all the senses. This chicken curry is from my mom too (though she doesn't eat, she cooks it deliciously). Its always been a success in my family.

Here goes the recipe:

1) Chicken - 1/2 lbs
2) Big Onion - 1
3) Tomatoes - 2
4) Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
5) Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
6) Red chillies - 2 or 3 (or according to your taste)
7) Coriader seeds - 2 tbsp
8) Cinnamon - 1 or 2
9) Cloves - 3
10) Coconut - 1/2 cup
11) Roasted gram - 2 tsp
12) Black pepper - 1 tsp
13) Oil - 4 tsp
14) Salt - as required

2) Add Ginger garlic paste, after its done, add chopped tomato and turmeric powder and cook until its done.
