Chicken Yogurt Masala

Chicken Yogurt Masala

I made this to accompany with Takkali Sadam @ Tomato Rice.  This chicken masala has a little sour taste from the yogurt.  Another easy going dish.

What you need:

500gm of chicken - cut to bite size
170gm of tairu (yogurt)
2 big onions - sliced
1tbs ginger/garlic paste
1 tomato - cut into wedges
1-2 green chillies (depending on how spicy you want the gravy)
2 tbs of chicken masala
1 tsp of tumeric
2 small cinnamon
3 cardamons
2-3 cloves
2-3 aniseeds
1 tsp of fennel seeds
1 tsp of cumin seeds
1 bay leaf
a few sprigs of curry leaves
a few sprigs of mint leaves - optional

How to do:
  1. In a bowl, marinate chicken with yogurt, ginger/garlic paste, tomato, tumeric and green chilly for 30 mins.
  2. In a wok/pan, heat oil and saute cinnamon, cardamons, aniseed, cloves, bay leaf, fennel and cumin seeds for a few minutes.
  3. Add in onions (about 3/4) and saute further till soft. Add in curry leaves.
  4. Add in chicken, mix well and cover to cook.  Stir occasionally and add water if needed.
  5. When the chicken is tender, add in the chicken masala, stir well, salt to taste.  Add in the remaining onions and mint leaves. Stir well and cook for a few more minutes.  Remove from heat and serve hot.
