Spicy Andra Chicken curry

Spicy Andra Chicken curry
  As the name says..it's a spicy curry / gravy cooked with chicken as the main ingredients along with other aromatic spices....it's originated from the state of Andra - south India n so it's name....

  Andra cuisine is the spiciest among the Indian cuisine...it's strongly flavored with spices ...it's an aromatic, spicy nd off-course delicious too....

  Since am a spice lover, I love Andra cuisine for it's peppery, spicy n gingerly taste.....this spiciness makes me to cook this Andra chicken curry at home....n yes, Andra chicken is even more tastier when it's cooked @ home....

  the ingredients includes.....



Ingredients:



 Chicken - 1 Kg.
onions - 2 (sliced).
gin-gar paste - 1 tbsp (preferably home-made).
green-chillies - 2 (chopped) ( can add more for more spiciness).
Coriander leaves - 5 tbsp(chopped).
oil - 3 tbsp.
salt - as needed.




To grind 1: popy seed paste ( dry roast b4 blending).
 poppy seeds -2 tbsp.
shredded coconut - 3tbsp.
whole cashew nuts - 5 (broken to pieces).

To Grind 2: spice powder (dry roast b4 grinding).
dry red chillies - 6-7.
coriander seeds - 3tbsp.
elaichi / cardamom seeds - 1( add  more if u like).
kal pasi / black stone flower - a pinch (optional-since i luv the flavor, iam adding this).
cinnamon stick - 1 inch stick.
cloves - 3-4.


Method:


=> clean n marinate the chicken pieces with 2tbsp of curd, 1tsp of lemon juice, 2 tsp of turmeric powder for 10 minutes ( i usually make this step for all chicken recipes).

=> Dry roast the ingredients for grind-1 n blend it to a paste.



=> Dry roast the ingredients for grind-2 n blend it to a powder.



=> heat 3tbsp oil in a pan, add in onions, saute it till golden-brown.

=> add in green chillies, saute for 20 sec.

=> add in gin-gar paste, saute for 10 more sec...


=> now add in chicken pieces n stir in, close the lid, reduce the flame,let the water oozes out from the chicken n let 50% of  oozed  water evaporates..(in this way, the chicken cooks in it's water and no water is needed which make the final result even more tastier).



=> now add the  spice powder, stir in, let it cook for 3 min.

=> add in poppy seed paste, stir well, let it cook for more 5 minutes...and it's done...



=> garnish it with lots of chopped cilantro / coriander leaves....

The tasty, spicy n aromatic Andra chicken curry  can b cooked more tastier @ home which adds a credit to the cooking skills.....fasten up  ur apron n go ahead....
