Chicken In Coconut Milk

I did not know that coconut gravy can be so tasty!! I mean we are all used to normal chicken curry , but if you replace water with the coconut milk in the same curry , it works wonder. Thank god that I had the coconut milk packet in my refrigerator and I wanted to get rid of it.......that is why this recipe came into my mind :)

Ingredients :

1. Boneless chicken- 6 to 7 pieces
2. Onion- 1
3. Garlic paste- 1 tsp
4. Ginger paste- 1/2 tsp
5. Red dry chilly (deseeded)- 2
6. Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
7. Red chilly powder- 1 tsp
8. Coconut milk- 1 cup
9. Salt to taste
10. Bhuna garam masala- 1/2 tsp
11. Oil
12. Lemon juice- 1/2 tsp

Procedure :

First make a smooth paste of the onion. Heat 2 large tbs oil in a non stick kadhayi and add the ginger-garlic paste to it. Fry them until they turn a little brown and start sticking to the base. Add the onion paste to it. Cover and let it cook over low heat. After 5 minutes add the chicken pieces and one chopped red chilly. Add garam masala , red chilly powder and turmeric. Mix well and let the mixture gets dried up a little more. Cover the kadhayi for another 5 to 7 minutes. When the onion paste will turn brown , add coconut milk to it and salt.

Cover and cook over low flame for 10 to 15 minutes until the chicken is done. Check the salt level and add the lemon juice to it. Chop the other red chilly and decorate the chicken dish with it. Serve it hot with rice or naan.
