Muthassi's Varutharacha Chicken Curry

I have tasted this chicken curry only once prepared by a distant relative(old muthassi) of my husband on the occassion of virunnu(Virunnu is a feast given to the couple soon after their wedding by the friends or relatives).There is something mystical about this curry, the aromas awakens your senses which in turn fires the appetite and it is hard for the taste buds to resist the temptation of this mouth watering 'varutharacha chicken curry'.Recently I managed to take the original recipe from this muthassi through my MIL,tried out the same  and the result was simply outstanding!!!!

For Grinding
Small onions-1 handful
Corriander seeds-3 Tbs
Pepper corns-1 Tbs
Red chillies-5-6
Garlic-3-4 cloves

For the masala
Onions-3 medium size
Green chillies-3
Ginger-1 piece
Turmeric-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves 2 strings for seasoning
Salt n water as required

Fry all the ingrediants for grinding till they turn dark brown.
Grind the same and keep aside
Fry the onions till dark brown followed by green chillies,ginger and tomatoes
Add the turmeric pwd n salt
Add the ground masala to this and fry again till the raw smell goes
Finally add the chicken and very less water and let the chicken get cooked well in the masala
Add some more water if required in a small quantity
Once done add curry leaves that are fried in the coconut oil.
Note:In order to get the dark brown color you have to fry both the masalas well in the kadai.
Goes well with rotis n rice.
