How to Make Chicken Aachari Curry

  • Slit the green chillies and soak them in the lemon juice. Keep aside.
  • Heat about 4-5 tbsps of oil in a nice big wok (kadhai). Fry the onions till brown.
  • Add the kalonji, methi dana, cumin and fennel. Mix well.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and turmeric powder. Roast well.
  • Now put in the chicken pieces and roast on high flame till well browned.
  • On high flame, add yoghurt and fry well.
  • Do so gently so you do not debone the chicken
  • Once oil separates, add the red chilli powder, roasted cumin powder and tomatoes.
  • Roast well once again on high flame.
  • Once this leaves oil around the edges, add about 1/2 a cup of water and salt to taste.
  • Cook covered on simmer for about 30 mins.
  • Stir once in a while.
  • Once the chicken is tender, put in the chillies with the lemon juice and fresh coriander.
  • Simmer for 5-7 minutes to enhance the flavours.
