Nadan special chicken curry

Donno why am again in a mood to post a chicken recipe.This can be cooked in a very simple way and has been shared by my neighbour whom I affectionately call as 'Thatha'.My Hubby has named this dish as 'Thatha's chicken curry' and it goes excellently well with Palappams.

Chicken-1/2 kilo

For Grinding
Corriander pwd-2 Tbs
Chilly pwd-2 Tbs
Turmeric pwd-1/2 tsp
Onion-2 big
Ginger-1 small piece
Garlic-4-5 cloves

For seasoning
Shallots-1 handful
Green chillies-3 slit
Curry leaves-2 strings
Ghee,oil and salt as desired.
Coconut milk-1 cup
Saute Chilly Pwd,Corriander Pwd and Turmeric Pwd in a pan for sometime.
Grind it in a mixer with very less quantity of water.
Add onions,ginger and garlic to the mixer and grind well.
Heat oil in a kadai and saute the ground masala in oil till the raw smell goes.
Now add chicken to this and very less quantity of water again and close the vessel.
Chicken has to be cooked in this masala.
Once the chicken gets cooked,add coconut milk to this.
Please note that you can either take fresh coconut milk or put 3 Tbs of coconut milk pwd in a mixer with water and take the milk.
Finally saute the shallots,green chillies and curry leaves in ghee and season the curry.

Serve with Palappam or Idiyappam.
