Chicken Curry

It has been sooo long since the last time I updated this blog. Anyway, I made some chicken curry and bean sprouts today. Here's the chicken curry recipe!

Chicken - 1/2 cut into medium size
Oil - 3 tbsp
Cardamom pods - 3
Fennel - 1 tsp
Cinnamon stick - 2 1/2 inch pieces
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tbsp
Meat curry powder - 4 tbsp
Chili powder - 1 1/2 tbsp
Milk - 1/2 cup (you could also use coconut milk)
Tomato (diced) - 1
Potatoes - 2
Blend to paste:
Onions (diced) - 2
Garlic - 3 cloves
Ginger - 2 tbsp

Heat the oil in a pan and add cardamom pods, cinnamon, fennel and cumin seeds.
Fry the spices briefly before adding in the blended paste. Keep stiring.
Add the turmeric powder, curry powder, chili powder and stir well. Reduce the heat and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
Put in the chicken pieces, potatoes, tomatoes and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and mix thoroughly and cover. Add milk and let it simmer until the chicken is cooked and the sauce thickens.
Serve hot with rice.
Wanted to make some roti jala for dinner but was too lazy. Had warm bread and curry instead :)
