Kasuri Meethi Chicken Curry!!! I have taken this picture almost a year back and never post it.. When ever I plan to post this but some how I use to end up posting some other recipe. As I'm fully prepared to clear all my draft, so this was the first recipe to come up on my blog..
Kasuri Meethi has lots of medicinal value and I'm not very good at explaining but I know it is very good for health and I always make a point to add few leaves in my veg or non-veg dishes.. I really love the taste of kasuri meethi. This chicken curry is often asked to cook in my family and I'm sure once you people get the taste of it you can't stop yourself cooking this atleast twice a month..
1/2kg chicken (cut into medium size pieces)
2 medium onion, 1 large tomato (finely chopped)
2tsp ginger garlic paste
1tsp red chili powder, 1/2tsp turmeric, 1tsp coriander powder
2tsp chicken masala
2tsp kasuri Meethi (dried fenugreek leaves)
1/2tsp cumin seeds
2 bay leaves
Salt to taste.
Ingredient's To Grind.
3 green chilli
1 black cardamom, 2 cloves, 1 cinnamon stick
1 green cardamom, 1 star anise
Handful of chopped coriander leaves.
In a mixer jar, add all the grinding ingredients and make a smooth paste by adding little water and set it aside.
In a pressure cooker, add oil, when oil is hot, add cumin and bay leaves, when they crackle. Add onion and fry to golden brown. Add the grounded paste along with red chili powder, turmeric, coriander powder, chicken masala and ginger garlic paste. and fry till the raw smell goes.. Add the tomato and fry till the oil start separating.(keep smashing the tomato in between)
Then add chicken, kasuri meethi, salt and 1 to 2cup of water and close the pressure cooker and cook for 2 whistle on a medium low heat.. Allow the pressure to escape before opening the cooker.
Garnish with some more fresh coriander leaves.
Serve hot with Rice or Roti..
