Chicken Curry

Chicken curry is the most common delicacy on every menu of any and every Indian Restaurant
and every home has its own version of it too. So do we too have our version simple , easy and delicious . I always loved the Chicken that u get in India the ones that had more flavor to it and would not cook up so fast. So we opted out for the Cornish hen which is pretty similar in taste as compared to the Indian chicken and tastes also about the same.

what u need:
Cornish hen : cut in bite size marinate with salt and turmeric for 30 mins
onion (shallots ) - 1 cup chopped
garlic -1 tablespoon chopped
ginger- 1 tablespoon chopped
tomato-1 finely chopped
turmeric- 1 teaspoon
chilli pwd -2 teaspoon (add spice as needed)
paprika - 2 teaspoon
black pepper ground- 1 teaspoon
garam masala - 1 teaspoon
whole spices -cinnamon, cardamon, bay leaves ,anise ,mace (few each)
olive oil-2 tablespoon

heat a pan with the EVOO.
add the whole spices in to get the flavor going,
meanwhile grind the shallots, ginger and garlic into a fine mixture
add into the hot oil and cook till the raw taste goes away or till the onion turns a little brown
then add turmeric, paprika, pepper, chilli pwd, and garam masala and let it cook for a few mins more till the spice blend into the onion paste.
Add the cut chicken mix well let it cook for at least 5-10 mins
add the chopped tomatoes and salt to taste
let it simmer till the chicken is completely cooked.
Serve with hot rice or rotis.
salt to taste
