Increase the flame to high and add chicken pieces and fry till the chicken changes the colour. Add salt, turmeric , coriander powder and coconut poppy seeds paste. Mix and continuously stir on low flame so that the coconut doesn’t stick to the kadhai. Sprinkle with some water, if required.

    This is one of my favourite chicken preparation and i often try it at home with certain variations though. i actually took my recipe from Goldbrick’s chef who adviced that the garam masala should be powdered and tied in am muslin cloth and the cloth dipped in warm water from over 10 mins. i have tried this one with garam masala directly added to spices mixture and also the other way round. the chef’s option turns out to be more subtle. thought will share the same here.
