Ingredients for Marination
Ingredients for Fresh Masala ( Spice Mix)
Marinate the chicken with the turmeric & chilli powder, ginger garlic paste and salt. Keep aside or at least 30 minutes.
Heat a small pan and dry roast the spices one after the other, until fragrant and golden brown. When cool, powder it in a spice jar/ coffee grinder.
Puree the tomatoes and set them aside. I sometime use tomato paste instead, but then, you will have a little less gravy.
Now add in the finely chopped onions and curry leaves and fry till the onions turn translucent.
Then add the pureed tomatoes/ tomato paste, ginger garlic paste and fry for 2-3 minutes until the raw smell goes off.
Add in the marinated chicken, coriander powder, homemade masala powder and mix well. Fry for 2-3 minutes..
Add in a cup of water and add salt as required. Do remember that the chicken already has salt while marinating. Mix well and cover and cook it for at least 10 minutes in medium flame.
Cover and let simmer on a low flame till the oil starts separating.
Then turn off the heat and garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot.
