A simple yet delicious chicken curry... RK is a kind of home lover, he loves to be at home on weekends, playing with little one,moving around and trying to help me in our cooking,rather than exploring outside, so most of our Sunday menus either breakfast or lunch will be elaborate, a much more relaxed time to chat, have a Heavy meal and a good afternoon nap... This curry can be made is less time if all ingredients on hand,and the curry goes a tasty accompaniments with biryani or chappathi. So try out and let know, how you liked it.

Chicken - 1/2 kg
Onion - 1
Tomato - 2
Ginger Garlic paste -1 tbs
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - few
To Temper:
Oil - 1 tbs
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin - 1/4 tsp
Pepper corns - 1/2 tsp
Bay leaf - 2
Star Anise - 2
Clove - 2
Cinnamon - 1
To Grind:
Coconut - 1/3 cup
Khus Khus(poppy seeds) - 1&1/2 tsp
Green Chilly - 2
Cashews - 3
Chilly Powder - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder - 2 tsp
Wash the chicken with salt and turmeric and set a side,then grind the ingredients under "To Grind" to a smooth paste.
 Take a kadai pour in oil add the ingredients under "To Temper" sauté till aroma comes out,then add in onion and sauté till translucent.
 Then add in ginger garlic paste sauté till the raw smell leaves out,add in tomatoes sauté till mushy
 Add the ground masala with turmeric and sauté till oil oozes out,then add in cut chicken pieces and sauté till the chicken turns white.
 Add in 2 cups of water and allow it to boil till the chicken is fully cooked and raw smell of masala leaves out.Then add in garam masala and allow it to boil for 2 mins and finally add in coriander leaves.
Serve this yummy chicken curry with briyani or plain rice and have a delicious meal:)

If you don't have khus khus you can replace with sunflower seeds or increase 2 cashews or skip it totally.

Sauté the masala well and allow it to boil for good 15 mins,this gives a nice flavour to the curry.

You can do the same with a pressure cooker for 3 whistle if you are in a hurry to save time.
