Tomato Chicken

This is one of the delicious recipes out of chicken. Recipe source is from My kitchen Flavors. I have made slight changes in it. Here goes the recipe.

Chicken: 500 gms (preferably boneless)
Onion: 1 medium
Tomatoes: 3-4 big
Ginger paste: 1tbsp
Garlic paste: 1tbsp
Turmeric powder: ½ tsp
Salt: needed
Garam Masala: 1tsp
Coconut oil: 2tbsp + 1tbsp
Fennel seeds: 1tsp
Curry leaves: few
Coriander leaves: 1 string
Method of Preparation
Grind onion to a smooth paste. And tomato also to a smooth paste. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan, add crushed dry chilli, stir and add onion paste, sauté for a while and add ginger and garlic paste to it.
Stir for 1 minute and add tomato paste to it. Add salt.
When oil starts to float add turmeric powder and garam masala. Stir and add the chicken pieces.
Add curry leaves. Stir well. Close with a lid. Put in low flame.
No need to add water, from chicken itself water will produce. If you need more gravy can add 1 cup water.
Stir frequently till it gets cooked.
When chicken gets cooked and gravy becomes dry add crushed fennel seeds and coriander leaves.
Switch off the flame.
If you like the taste of coconut oil you can add 1tbsp coconut oil at this stage. (This step is optional)
