Hai Friends…Hope everyone kick started their week with a blissful monday..My weekend was really a cooking weekend, I made so many dishes these two days, don't worry I took pictures of them too..Those recipes will be live in my blog soon... keep checking untill then..
Now lets talk something about this chicken curry. I always wanted to make a chicken curry which has onion base in it. Couple of weeks back I found a bunch of spring onions which looked like it will go dry soon. I thought of putting it in right use somehow. I also had some big onions in my pantry, finally decided to make a curry of my dream. I used my pressure cooker for it, I love to use my pressure cooker to cook my chicken, because it makes the chicken cook untill it is tender and make the chicken to get maximum flavour.
Chicken Drumsticks - 5 (You can use any chicken parts)
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Coriander powder / Malli podi - 1 tblspn
Turmeric powder / Manjal podi - 1 tsp
Garam Masala powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Onion - 2 large chopped
Spring Onions - 10 chopped
Tomato- 1 large chopped
Garlic - 5 cloves
Oil - 3 tblspn
Cinnamon / Pattai - 1 small stick
Bay leaf - 1
Fennel Seeds / Saunf / Sombu - 1 tsp
Cardamom / Yelakai - 3 crushed
Take ingrediants given for grinding in a blender and make into a fine puree.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add in the ingrediants given for tempering. Saute for a min.
Add in the ground masala and mix well. Cook this for 10 mins till the masala gets cooked.
Add in the spice powders and salt. Saute this for a min.
Add in chicken drumstick and mix well.
Pour a cup of water and cover the pressure cooker.
Let it cook for 4 whistle. Then simmer the flame for 15 mins. Switch off the flame and let the steam go all by itself.
Now open the pressure cooker and serve the curry with roti.
