How to Make Chettinad Chicken Masala

  • Cut and clean the chicken into big pieces. Then add salt and turmeric powder, and marinate (soak) it in curd for 1 hour.
  • In a dry pan, fry cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, chilli, garlic, ginger, pepper, fenugreek, and poppy seeds.
  • Grind them in a mixer (using water, optional) and keep aside.
  • Now in a pan, heat oil and fry the chopped onions.
  • Then add the ground mix and fry it for a few minutes.
  • Add the marinated chicken and cook well.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, add lemon juice.
  • Allow the water to evaporate by keeping it on low flame.
  • The saturated fat of the chicken will float as oil on top. Serve hot.
