Andhra Style Chicken curry - mom style

Today I prepared a dish that made me feel like I am home - my mom version of chicken curry.

This dish is really easy and quick to make. And trust me, no matter how much of the curry you make it won't be enough for sure. Give it a try!!

2 lbs whole chicken cut into medium sized pieces(around 1 kilogram)
1 big onion chopped fine
2 green chillies sliced lengthwise
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 to 2 tbsp red chilli powder (depending on your spice level)
1 tsp garam masala
Salt for taste
3 tbsp oil
1 tbsp or big blob of butter(venna)
For Tempering
5 to 6 cloves
small cinnamon stick
1 green cardamom crushed
1 tsp jeera
5 or 6 curry leaves
For Garnish
handful of coriander leaves to garnish

Clean and cut the chicken. In a big bowl, add the ginger garlic paste, salt and red chilli powder, chicken, mix it and set aside.
Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan. Add the tempering and let them splutter. Add in the onions, green chillies and little salt. Give it a good stir and let it cook till onions are translucent and light brown in color. Now add in the marinated chicken, give it a good stir and close the lid. Let the chicken cook in its own water. Stir gently occasionally.
Once all the water from the chicken evaporates (approximately 7 to 8 minutes), add in the butter. Add in half cup of water and close the lid. Check to see if the chicken is cooked all the way through and if there is still water in there, take off the lid and let the water evaporate. Bring the gravy to required consistency.Check and adjust the seasonings.
Once the gravy reaches required consistency sprinkle the garam masala, give it a gentle stir and turn off the heat.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
This dish can be served with steamed rice or any kind of Indian bread items or even garelu.
