Andhra Chicken

If you ask me or my siblings what dishes we love eating the most, our unanimous answer would be 'Chickennnnnnn' ! Yeah that's true! We can eat more food when there is a chicken dish on the menu, my mom did a candid research on our eating patterns and reached that conclusion! So when i started spending *more* time in the kitchen, i definitely wanted to learn chicken recipes! I learnt few dishes which Ammi used to cook and then i turned towards my comp! And i landed on cooking4allseasons, a blog by Srivalli.

This was around 3-4 months back and my interest in cooking was just rising. I went through the recipes and finally bookmarked and decided i would make Andhra chicken roast, a beautiful recipe which she has shared. Thanks Srivalli. :) And i made it that day and several times after that. It turned out FABULOUSLY well! Totally yumm! The actual recipe calls it Andhra chicken roast but i make it slightly gravy-ish!

What i gathered:

For the marinade:
Chicken - 1 kg
Yogurt- 2 cups
Ginger garlic paste - 3 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 3 tbsp ( we love spicy food) :p
Salt to taste
Red food color- A pinch

To Saute:
Onions - 4 small
Chopped Ginger - 1''

For the masala :
Whole Coriander - 2 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Fennel - 1 tsp
Poppy paste -3 tsp


1. To marinate chicken, wash and cut the chicken to the desired size. Add in yoghurt, Ginger Garlic paste, salt and chilli powder, red food color and refrigerate for an hour. ( The longer, the better)!

2. Heat oil in a kadai and saute the chopped onions until light brown. Add in the chopped ginger and saute for a few mins. Add in the chicken marinade. Cook the chicken for around 20 mins with the lid on, without adding water.

3. Meanwhile, roast the whole coriander, cumin and fennel seeds and grind them to make a fine powder.

4. Once the chicken is cooked well, add the above ground powder along with poppy paste and cook again for around 20 mins or till its done.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Yummy eh? ;)
