  5.     Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
  6.     Onions  - 2 medium made into paste
  7.     Fried onion paste - slice a large onion.                                                                                                                                             heat oil in a pan and saute the sliced onions until golden n slightly crisp. Cool n blend into a paste.           
  8.     Dried red chillies - 4-5 chopped
  9.     Garam masala [2 cloves, 2 cardamom, 1/2 tsp caraway seeds, small cinnamon stick,  7-8 cubebs]
  10.     Chopped coriander - 1 cup
  11.     Chopped green chillies - 2-3
  12.     Salt to taste
  13.     Oil - 2 tbsp          

Method :

  1. Clean and wash the chicken pieces.
  2. Add ginger-garlic paste, salt and turmeric powder, nicely rub into the chicken pieces and keep for marination for about 30 minutes.
  3. Dry roast both poppy seeds and coconut and make into a fine paste. Keep aside.
  4. Heat oil in a wok add garam masala [cloves, cardamom. caraway seeds, cinnamon stick,  cubebs]
  5. Fry for a few seconds, then add onion paste, stir fry till the raw smell goes away.
  6. Then add ginger-garlic paste, fry for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Now add turmeric and red chilli powder, mix.
  8. Add the marinated chicken pieces and mix well to coat the chicken pieces with all the spices.
  9. Fry well till no liquid remains.
  10. Now add enough water and let it cook on a medium to low flame till the water dries up and the chicken is done.
  11. Add Poppy seed-coconut paste, fried onion paste and beaten curd, mix well.
  12. Fry till the oil separates from the mixture.
  13. Stir in the chopped coriander, green chillies and dried red chillies.
  14. Add little water as per the consistency of the gravy you desire, I like it thicker so I'm going to add just 1/4 cup of water and cook for another few minutes till I reach the right consistency..
  15. Serve hot with parathas or with rice and khatti dal.

                  Enjoy and Good luck :)
