 Today I am posting the very first chicken recipe on my blog. Its a traditional way of cooking chicken in my family and whenever there is a family gathering this chicken dish is always prepared and is liked by all.

Ingredients :-

Chicken - 1/2 kg
Turmeric powder and salt - to coat the chicken
Onions - 4 medium size
Garlic - 1 whole
Ginger - 1 1/2 inch
Cumin seeds - 4 tbsp
Pepper corns -1 tsp
Cloves - 5
Black Cardamom - 1
Green Cardamom - 2-3
Cinnamon -  1 inch
Mace (javitri) - 1 tsp crushed
Nutmeg - 1/4 tsp crushed
Caraway seed (saahjeera) - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Bay leaf - 3
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 6 tbsp + frying

Hot water - 1 1/2 cup

 Method :-

Clean the chicken, sprinkle a pinch of turmeric powder and 1/2 tsp of salt and mix it with your hands nicely.
Take a deep frying pan and fry the chickens until its brown on both the sides, keep it aside.
Take a tawa roast all the dry ingrdients a bit, and grind it in a grinder to a fine powder and now add the garlic and ginger and little water and grind it again to make a smooth paste.
Slice the onions thinly, heat a pan and put oil in it. Put the bay leaf and
 the onions and fry. When the onions have turned to a brown shade put the ground paste, coriander and the red chilli powder into it and fry it on a low flame for 15 minutes, stirring it at intervals and adding little water if necessary. Now add the chicken and mix it in the masala, keep frying and sprinkling bit of water until the oil separates and the masala has taken a beautiful dark brown colour.
 Add the garam masala and water and cover it and cook until the chicken is done. Serve it hot with rice or rotis.
