Kundapur style Spicy Chicken

Serves: 3 - 4

You will need

500 g chicken, cut into medium size pieces

1 tablespoon oil

4 onions, medium size, finely sliced ( separate each layer )

1 - inch piece ginger, finely chopped

10 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 springs dark green curry leaves

1 tomato ( 1 big or 2 medium size ), finely chopped

2 1/2 tablespoon Kundapur masala powder ( 2 - 3 tablespoon )

1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon salt ( or to taste )

Here's the recipe Kundapur Masala Powder

Method

Wash and clean chicken pieces, drain out water completely and keep aside.

Heat oil in a wide pan. Add finely sliced onions and fry till golden color on a medium heat.

Add chopped ginger, garlic and curry leaves. Stir well for 5 minutes.

Add Kundapur masala powder and mix well.

Add chicken pieces, chopped tomato and salt to taste. Do not add water. Mix all the ingredients well and cook on a low to medium heat for 35 - 40 minutes ( stir occasionally ) or till done / gravy well coated on chicken pieces / gravy thickens / bright red color. Serve with Rice / Pulao / Roti / Idiyappam ....

Tip:

One can add 1/2 cup ( 50 - 75 ml ) of coconut milk to this preparation ( when it is done ) - which - not only reduces the spiciness / but also increases the taste. Need to adjust salt in this case. The down side is extra fat / calories.
