Chicken Masala Recipe
Method:
1. Clean, wash chicken pieces and add all the marination ingredients and let it marinate for 2 hours or longer.
2. Chop onion in chunks and grind it into smooth paste, add little water only if required.
3. In a pan heat oil add onion paste, all the spice powders and fry until onion starts to leave oil around 15 minutes in medium to slow heat.  Onion has to be fried well so take your time on this.
4. Add marinated chicken, mix well and let it cook until chicken pieces gets cooked fully in medium to slow heat.  Stir in intervals and this will take little longer time around 20+ minutes.
5. Add salt and cashew paste mix everything well and cook until oil starts to floats on top for around 10-12 minutes in slow flame.  Off the flame and garnish with cilantro.
This recipe takes times but it has to be cooked in slow to medium flame and it's worth it and here is my platter with poori and pulav and so many other things.
