Simple Chicken Curry

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Whenever I get chance to make chicken dishes, this is must for me. I love this chicken curry as it is easy but very tasty. It goes well with Naan, roti, dosa, rice or idiyappum.
Its long time, I have cooked non veg at home. I prepared this curry few months back. It was in my draft. Yesterday, when I was searching a curry recipe for Divya's event, I got this one.
Here is the recipe :
Chicken - 1/2 kilo
Cut  the chicken into pieces. Wash it twice. Rub  the chicken with salt and turmeric powder. Keep it for some time. Wash it twice and drain the water. 
For marination
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Oil - 1tsp
Curds - 2 tbsp
Salt a pinch
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Mix all and marinate the chicken for 15 minutes to half an hour or till you prepare the gravy.

For gravy :
Oil - 2 tbsp
Onion - 2 big, thinly sliced
Tomato - 2 big, cubed
Fresh coconut paste- 2 tbsp, 
Fresh yogurt - 1 tbsp
Red chilly powder - 1 to 2 tbsp
Coriander powder - 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt to taste
Warm water as per the need of consistency
Fresh Coriander hand full garnish

Whole garam masala :
Cardamom - 1
Cloves - 2
Cinnamon stick - 1/2"
Poppy seeds - 1 tbsp(optional)
Star anise- 1 petal(not full one piece, its very strong in flavor and taste)

Coarse powder the whole garam masala and keep it ready. (make 2 portions, keep little for adding it in the last step)

Keep cooker on the heat and add oil. When the oil is very hot add the sliced onion and fry till golden brown. Add the whole garam masala. Fry for a minute. Add tomatoes and fry for a minute. Now add curds, coconut paste, Mix well and cook for a minute. Add the marinated chicken. Add Mix and fry well for few minutes. Add the water. Close the cooker and give one whistle or just cover it till the chicken is tender and cooked..
Adjust the taste. Garnish with fresh coriander.
Serve with naan, roti, chapati, dosa or rice!!
