How to Make Madurai chicken curry

  • Except coriander powder, dry roast all the garam-masala ingredients. Grind it into a slightly coarse powder.
  • Then, add coriander powder and grind it for a few seconds. Do not add water in this process.
  • Grind the ginger and garlic into a fine paste. Add 3-4 tbsps of water.
  • In a saucepan, heat oil. Add the chopped onions and saute until they turn golden brown.
  • Add turmeric powder and fry for a few seconds.
  • Add tomato and 1/4 tsp of salt and let it cook until it becomes mushy and blends nicely with the onion.
  • Add chicken and fry it until its colour changes.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and fry it until the raw smell disappears and the oil starts leaving the pan.
  • Add the remaining salt and chilli powder. Mix it well.
  • Add 2 cups of water and let it cook for 5 minutes.
  • Now, add the garam masala and remaining 1/2 cup of water and let it cook for 30 minutes on a low flame.
  • Close the lid to lock in the aroma while cooking.
  • Remove from flame.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and curry leaves.
  • Serve with hot rice, rotis or parathas.
