  • Use only ghee to prepare this recipe. 

Method of Preparation:

1. Prepare the required ingredients. In a tadka pan, heat ghee and roast the spices under "To Roast and grind to a fine paste". In a food processor, add chopped tomatoes and the roasted spices. Blend to a fine paste with 1/4 cup of water.
2. Finely chop or blend once the shallots and garlic for a coarse mixture. In a wide non-stick pan, heat ghee. Add curry leaves and fry for a minute. Remove the fried curry leaves and keep aside.
3. Add fennel seeds and onions. Saute for a couple of minutes till onion turns translucent. Add ginger garlic garlic paste. Saute nicely with the onions. Add the tomato paste. Saute and let it cook for a couple of minutes.

4. Add spices: turmeric powder and salt. Add cleaned chicken pieces. Add freshly crushed pepper powder, red chilli powder. Mix well and let it cook with the spices and tomato mixture for 2 minutes.
5.As it starts to reduce and the spices have blended. Add water. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes or till the chicken is cooked and the water id reduced to semi-gravy consistency. Add fried curry leaves and ghee.
Serve hot!!!
