"Chicken Curry", Chicken Gravy, Chicken main course, kozhi kulambu, kozhi gravy

Chicken curry, chicken fry.... Chicken is great for health despite of the method it is cooked. Chicken is a good source of Protein. And I think Chicken has more recipes than mutton or beef. This is the first recipe I learnt when I started to cook because I like chicken very much and found it to be very easy recipe to cook.
Also Chicken curry is the first post on my blog :) 
I used more oil in this recipe. You can use less oil concerning your diet.
Happy cooking :)

Preparation
  1. Heat oil in a pan and all the spices under Tempering.Once the spices become red and sends it's nice aroma, add onion.
  2. Sauté onion till its golden brown or translucent and then add Ginger garlic paste.Once the ginger garlic paste's raw smell is gone, add tomato and sauté it, till it is partially smashed or the raw smell is gone.
  3. Then add Chicken(cleaned and cut up), salt, chilly powder and coriander powder. Stir the above for few seconds and then add water (quantity depends on consistency you desire). I added little water since the chicken itself will leave some water.
  4. Close the pan and allow the chicken to boil. Once the curry starts boiling, add few curry leaves and green chilly.
  5. Keep the curry in medium flame until the chicken is cooked. Switch off the flame when oil separates from the gravy (this is then the chicken curry is ready).
  6. Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
