I got this recipe from somebody straight from India. He brought it to a pot luck one day, and I must say, no Indian restaurant I have ever been to does it as good as a home cooked recipe.
You may need to tinker with it a bit, since he said he does it mostly by smell and taste.
- Take a medium size Onion.
- Cut thin slices of it.
- Fry the Onion, in oil of your choice enough to cover the onions, till it gets light brown.
- Take one part of ginger and two parts of garlic and make a paste of it using a blender. Add approximately two tea spoon full of the
ginger/garlic paste to the fried onions. Keep rest of the ginger/garlic paste for future use.
- Take one large or two small tomatoes and chop them.
- Add the following ingredients to the onions along with ginger/garlic:
- Turmeric Ό tea spoon
- Salt 1 tea spoon (add more to your taste if needed)
- Allspice Ύ tea spoon
- Red Pepper 1 tea spoon (add more to your taste if needed)
- Black Seeds (AKA Union Seeds) 1 tea spoon
- Fennel Seeds (Grounded) 1 tea spoon
- Coriander 1 tea spoon
- Curry powder 1 tea spoon
- Add 3 to 4 green peppers (slit the peppers into 4 pieces)
- Add the chopped tomatoes.
- Stir it for may be a minute or two and then add cleaned chicken pieces (1 ½ to 2 pounds)
- Stir it for few minutes making sure that it doesnt get burn at the bottom. Stir until all the juices have evaporated.
Then add may be a cup of water and a cup of yogurt, and let it cook until chicken is soft and tender (add more water if you have to in order to cook the meat).
- Final touches cut a lemon or lime into two halves. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon and add some coriander leaves (fresh) and stir few times.
