Procedure for Chicken curry
- Wash chicken properly and keep it aside.
- Add oil in a pressure cooker and heat it. Add cloves and black pepper in the cooker and cook it for a minute. You can also add bay leaf, cardamom, and shah jeera, if you want. I am not adding these spices here as I want to limit my ingredients and keep my recipe simple.
- Now add finely chopped onion, garlic and ginger in the cooker. Cook till the raw smell goes away completely.
- Add red chilli powder, salt, turmeric, whole spice powder and coriander powder. Cook it for 4-5 minutes.
- Add chicken and all spice powder, sauté it for 4-5 minutes. Now when the chicken starts turning pale, lower the flame and add yoghurt.
- Cook for two-three minutes, add half glass water and close the lid of pressure cooker. Keep in mind that chicken release water, so add water accordingly.
- Keep pressure cooker on high flame and let it cook for 5 minutes or 3 whistles. Let the pressure drop on its own.
- Open the lid and check whether chicken is done or not. Chicken should separate from bone easily.
- On high flame now let the curry sauté till oil separates. Check the consistency of the gravy, if required add more water.
- Garnish it with coriander(cilantro). Serve it hot with hot chapati or rice or naan.
Note: You can replace curd with tomatoes/tomato puree if you want. Add finely chopped 2-3 medium sized tomatoes instead of curd.
