Garlic And Roasted Spices Chicken

We had some friends for dinner over the weekend. I wanted to make some simple dishes. I thought of a simple chicken dish and made this one with loads of garlic in it. I used roasted spices, unlike any chicken dishes I have tried so far. It came out so good. I will be making this often now.

1 lb chicken
1/2 cup onion
1/4 cup tomato
4 green chillies
1/2 tea spn chilli powder
A pinch turmeric
2 tbl spn garlic pieces
1 tbl spn ginger-garlic paste
2 tbl spn fresh/frozen coconut

Spice mixture -(roasted without oil and ground)

6 cloves
2″ cinnamon
1 cardamom
A small piece nutmeg
1 piece japatri(mace)
1 tea spn coriander seeds
1 tea spn cumin seeds
1/2 tea spn methi seeds


Heat oil and add onion, ginger-garlic paste and salt. Fry for few minutes, add green chillies.
Add tomatoes, mix well. Add coconut, mix well. Add spice mixture, chilli powder, mix again.
Add turmeric, chicken pieces and mix. Now add garlic pieces, 1/4 cup water, cover and cook till done.
Serve hot.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 20mins
