Chicken Curry/ChickenRoast





This Chicken curry is very easy to cook.Usually we are buying chicken from Halal Market.HalalMarket chicken is more tastier than the usual frozen whole chicken from other grocery shops.and also halal market they will make the chicken into small pieces.So no need to waste our time.I found the tyson cornishHen also have nice taste.It will be found in almost all the grocery's frozen section.

Here i preferred the roasted chicken because  my husband doesn't like the curry version of it.My mom used to prepare the chicken curry with more gravy.You can make it according to your taste.This chicken curry is prepared without using a single spoon of water.If u add water that will make the taste difference too.So better to cook the chicken without adding water.
Today i am going to tell u how to make this delicious chicken Curry/Chicken Roast.

Cost of the Chicken -1.99/pound
Cooking time -45 minutes



Ingredients:
To Fry:





Cleaned chicken -250 gm
Onion - 1 big
Garlic -2 cloves
Ginger - medium piece
GreenChilly- 3 nos
Tomatoe  -1 no
CurryLeaves -6 leaves


For Masala:


Turmeric Powder -1 tsp
Coriander Powder -1 1/2 tsp
ChillyPowder -1 tsp
Garam Masala- 2 tsp
Salt -to taste
Fennel Seed- 1/2 tsp(not shown in the picture)



Note:Just saute these powders together for 2 minute.If u fry the masala it will make more tastier.

To season:


Mustard Seeds - 1tsp
CurryLeaves -5 leaves
Redchilly -2 nos



Preparation:
Step 1: Heat oil in a pan.Add mustard seeds,once they started spluttering add red chilly and curry leaves,then add garlic ginger and green chilly....let them fry in medium heat until it become light golden brown ,then add the sliced onion.
 


Step 2.Once the onions get light brown, add the tomato and then masala into it. (as shown in figure).Stir well .Let it fry for 2 minutes

Step3:Add the Chicken in to the masala mix.Lower the heat and let it fry for 15 to 30 minutes.In between just stir well.Do not add any water into it.If u check the chicken after 5 minutes u can see the gravy is forming from the moisture of the chicken.
 
Within minutes u will get a very tasty chicken curry.According to your taste u can dry up the gravy.For making the roast just fry it more time.

So today's dinner you can try this.....Have it with rice and Parippu,its a wonderful combination.Just try this combo also.


Points to ponder
1.clean the chicken with lime water .it will avoid the raw smell of the chicken.
2.Slice the onion in thin pieces.
3.Always cook the chicken in very medium heat.
4.Don't add water.
