Chicken Masala

 This is one recipe the babies/children in our family have eaten and have been eating for a long long time. (adjusting the spices) We all love it and it tastes so good on the side with dal/rice, curd rice and sometimes we even eat it with rasam/rice :)

Easy to make and its sure to be a big hit with your fussy toddler!!

This is the first recipe I learnt while starting to beginners...this one's for you!:)

1/2 a chicken (about 7 pieces)
1 big onion, diced
1 tomato, chopped
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
4 tbsps tomato puree
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
3/4 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp chilli powder
water to cook the chicken (approx 1 to 1.5 cups)
mint/ fresh coriander leaves- handful
1 tbsp ghee/butter

  • In a pressure cooker or a wok heat the ghee
  • Add the onions and saute till they turn slightly brown. Add some oil for easy stirring
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and stir for a minute and then add the tomatoes
  • Stir and poke on the tomatoes so that they soften and break. stir for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken. stir
  • Add the spices and stir. add salt to taste.
  • Add the tomato puree and give it a good stir.
  • Add the mint/ coriander leaves and enough water to cook the chicken

  • close the pressure cooker and cook for about 3 whistles. switch off flame
  • after the  pressure cooker has cooled off, open to check if there is still water. If there is just cook over the flame till the water disappears.
