3 lb. roasting chicken
3 tbsp. oil
2 lg. onions, thinly sliced and to taste
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. yogurt
1 tsp. garlic, crushed
1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp. garam masala
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
2 tbsp. yogurt
Joint the chicken. Combine marinade ingredients and rub well over the
chicken pieces. Set aside for 1 hour or longer. Heat oil and fry the
onions, stirring constantly, until they are evenly golden brown.
Remove from the pan. In the same oil, fry the chicken pieces until
brown on both sides. Add chili powder, any remaining marinade and 1/2
cup water. Cover and simmer until tender. Stir yogurt into gravy,
return fried onions to pan, and simmer 5 minutes longer.
I recommend using chicken breasts and leg. Take all the skin and fat
off the chicken, wash it and cut breast in two pieces. Score the
chicken and put on marinade. Follow the rest of the directions. I also
recommend you use much less onion.
What I did: used one onion, used chicken thighs, and doubled the garlic, ginger, chili, turmeric and garam masala.
It’s so damn good.
