Chicken Varutha Kari / Fried Chicken Kuzhambu II

I saw this recipe in one of the TV Cookery Shows. Nowadays I enjoy experimenting recipes with Chicken as it gets mixed well with any masala and gives amazing taste each time.


Ingredients:
Chicken 400g
Onions (Medium) 2
Tomato (Medium) 3
Finely Chopped Garlic 3tsp
Finely Chopped Ginger 3tsp
Dried Red Chillies 4
Turmeric Powder 2-3 pinch
Pepper Powder ¼ tsp
Chilli Powder 1tsp
Coriander Powder 1 ¼ tsp
Cumin Powder ¼ tsp
Aniseeds Powder ¼ tsp
Grated Coconut 5 tsp
Curry Leaves Few
Coriander Few
Water
Salt
Oil

For Seasoning:
Aniseeds ½ tsp
Cloves 3
Cardamom a small piece
Bay Leaf 1

Preparation:
Chop Onions into fine pieces. Cut Chicken into medium pieces.
Grind together:  Tomato, Garlic and Ginger
Grate Coconut and blend with little water.

Method:
Heat Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Aniseeds, Cloves, Cardamom, Bay Leaf.  When they turn slightly brown, add Curry Leaves, Chillies and few seconds later add finely chopped Onions. Fry till they turn golden brown.
Now add Tomato-Ginger-Garlic paste and Pepper Powder. Fry till its raw smell goes off. Now add all other Powders and Coconut Paste. Fry for 3-5 minutes.
Now add Chicken pieces and fry for few more minutes so that it gets mixed well with Masala. Add Salt and Water. Cook till done. Garnish with Coriander Leaves.
Serves : 2-3
Serve hot with Rice.

Note: If you do not have Aniseeds or Cumin Powder, add few seeds while grinding Tomatoes.
