Chicken -1/2 kg
Kashmiri Chilli Powder-2 tsp
Ginger-medium piece (cut into thin strips )
Garlic -4-5 cloves
Curry leaves -2 strings
Coconut Oil-2 tbsp
Cut the chicken in to medium size pieces ,wash well and keep aside ..
In a pan, roast chilli powders and keep aside (its optional ,raw smell of chilli powder will go by doing this )
In a sauce pan add small onions (cut each into half ),onion slices ,ginger , garlic slices ,salt ,chilli powders,turmeric powder ,curry leaves and tomato pieces ..
(U can adjust the spice level according to ur taste )
Then crush everything well with ur hand ..
To this add chicken pieces and mix well ..
Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil and cook in medium flame by closing the pan..
No need to add water in the beginning .. Water will come out from chicken ..
When u see when very less water is left , that time add hot water and mix slowly ..
When done 3/4 th add garam masala and cook ..
(If u don’t want to use garam masala powder u can use whole spices in the very beginning instead of that )..
When done u can see oil oozing out in the top ..
At that time add chilli pieces ,crushed pepper and mix ..
Check the taste ..Adjust according to ur taste .
Finally sprinkle one table spoon of coconut oil and some curry leaves ..
If u want more gravy adjust water accordingly.Here I made a thick consistency type mulakittathu
Note :If u want u can add pinch of fenugreek powder(uluva )to it to enhance the flavour..
This is the easiest chicken curry we used to make ,like fish curry ..Actually this recipe is for bachelors and lazy moms like me :)
The only thing is that ,it will take time to get cook and coated well with the masala ,coz we r not sautéing anything here .. So have to cook and combine the taste with chicken pieces ..So show some patience and make a tasty easy chicken mulakittathu :)
Try this recipe and let me know the result .. U can have this curry with chapatti ,parotta , fried rice …
