How to Make Chicken in Almond Paste

  • Clean and wash the chicken pieces.
  • Churn the curd and add the powdered spices. Mix well and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed vessel. Saute the cardamoms, cloves, cinnamom and bay leaves for a few seconds.
  • Add the onions and green chillies and saute on low flame. When the onions turn pink, add the ginger-garlic paste and saute until the onions turn golden.
  • Add the curd mixture. Stir continuously for few minutes so that you get a nice brown colour.
  • Add the chicken pieces and salt to the onion-curd mixture and mix well. Saute on low flame until the oil separates.
  • Add the almond paste and mix well. Saute for 5 minutes.
  • Add a little water. Cover with a lid with some water on it.
  • Cook on low flame, stirring at regular intervals until the chicken is tender.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rotis.
