Chicken Fry (mmm smells amazing!!)

Chicken Fry (Indian ishtyle)

When I just have a smiple currly like dal or tomato cut or tomato chutney already made, I go for chicken fry. It tastes soo good with them and also can be made in very little time.It comes in handy when you have a bunch of guest suddenly drop in.It also makes it a good candidate for ramadan as you get more time for other chores. Mashallah this Ramzan has been very good. Its a different kind of joy of fasting..and at the end of the day when the whole family comes together to break there fast and share there stories you stop for a second an think about the oneness and love it brings along. I will also be participating in the Ramdan event hosted by Lubna of Kitchen flavours and Yasmeen of Healthnut. They are amazing and they have put in an amazing effort for this event. I will definately be posting more recipies for this event.

Cheers to easy cooking!!

Chicken - 1 cut into medium size pieces(about 14-16 pieces)
Red chili powder - 2 tsp (you can reduce the amount if you don't want it to be spicy)
Salt : 1-1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder : 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Onion - 1 sliced

Garam masala powder - 1-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - hand ful
Green chillies - 3 (slit vertical)

Mix everything except Garammasala,curry leaves and green chillies in a pan.
Add 2 cups of water and cover. let it cook until all water evaporates.
Now in a separate kadhai (pan) heat 3 tbsp of oil. Add green chillies and saute
until the ends become light brown. Add curry leaves and saute a little more.
