Chicken Curry

Meal.Mates's picture
Chicken Curry is a sumptuous Indian chicken dish that is simply a joy to prepare and serve. My family is hooked to this chicken preparation and I make it often for our weekend luncheons. Try this Chicken Curry. You will love it. Trust me!
  Oil/Ghee 2 Tablespoon
  Onions 3 , finely chopped
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), finely chopped
  Curry paste 1 Tablespoon
  Tomato paste 2 Tablespoon
  Water 3 Tablespoon
  Chicken drumsticks 1 Kilogram
  Salt To Taste
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
  Desiccated coconut 1 Tablespoon

Heat oil in a large, heavy frying pan and gently fry onions and garlic for 5 minutes.
Stir in curry paste, tomato paste and water and cook gently for another 5 minutes.
Trim off shank ends of drumsticks with poultry shears if you wish (they look more attractive) and place in pan.
Spoon onions over, cover tightly, and simmer very gently for 30 minutes or until chicken is tender.
(Very slow cooking should prevent chicken burning, but a little extra water may be added if necessary.) Before serving, stir in salt and lemon juice to taste, and the desiccated coconut, which will absorb any excess gravy.
(Serves 6-8).
Note: This is also an excellent way to reheat cold, leftover chicken.
After frying onions and pastes, stir in 1/2 cup water and season with salt and lemon juice.
Simmer for 10 minutes before adding cold chicken pieces.
Stir well, cover tightly, and cook gently for 5 minutes or until heated thoroughly.
