Chicken Curry with Vegetables




My Hus wanted Chicken Curry with Vegetables yesterday. I gave it a try with Pearl Onions. My Mom and Grandma always use Pearl Onions with Chicken. I tasted a little; it was good. My Hus liked it very much and asked me to prepare the same next week. This would tell you how good it tasted.


Here is the tasty recipe.

Ingredients:

Chicken 400g
Potato (Medium) 1
Peas Handful
Tomatoes (Medium) 2
Pearl Onions 15 OR ¾ of 350ml cup
Dried Red Chillies 5
Turmeric Powder ¼ tsp
Chilli Powder ¾ tsp
Coriander Powder 2 tsp
Garam Masala ½ tsp
Chicken stock 3 to 3 ½ cups
Yoghurt and Turmeric Powder for marinating
Coriander Leaves

Whole Garam Masala

Aniseeds and Cumin 1/8 tsp each
Cloves 4
Bay Leaves 2
Cinnamon a small piece
Black Cardamom 2


Preparation:

Roughly chop Pearl Onions and Tomatoes. Clean and cut Chicken and Potato into medium pieces.

Rub Yoghurt and Turmeric Powder over chicken pieces and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.


Method:

Heat oil in a Pan. Add Chillies and chopped Onions. When Onions turn translucent, add the chopped Tomatoes. Fry till its raw smell goes off.

Let it cool and then puree the mixture.

Heat Oil in a Pan. When hot, add the whole Garam Masala. When they turn slightly brown, add the pureed mixture.

Saute for a while and then add all the Powders. Fry till the oil separates.

Now add chopped Potatoes and Chicken Pieces. Mix well. Fry for a while and then add Chicken stock, Salt and Peas. Stir well. Close the lid and cook till done.

Garnish with Coriander Leaves.

Serves: 2-3
Serve with hot steamed Rice or Chapati.

Notes:

Chicken Stock can be replaced by Water and Pearl Onions by normal Red Onions.

Grated Coconut can also be added. But I didnt use Coconut as the gravy was already thick with ground Onions, Vegetables and Chicken.

 


Moong Dhal, Channa, Chicken and Peas are rich in Protein.

btw..you've asked for sugar syrup consistency na..
I will add water, till the sugar immerses and heat it with constant stirring. Once, the sugar dissolves and reaches oily consistency, turn off the flame. After cooling the sugary syrup will be perfect..try n let me know..:)
