Chicken Chalna

This is the first non-veg recipe in my blog..I have just started venturing into non-veg cooking..I got this recipe from Kamala Akka..I recently discovered that she is a distant relation of mine..And I like her recipes a lot..Especially her nonveg ones..They make me drool..She makes perfect parottas like a pro..I made this chicken chalna and had it with parotta..They were too too good..This recipe is a keeper..Here goes the recipe..


Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Ginger - garlic paste - 1 teaspoon
Chilli powder - 2 teaspoons
Coriander Powder - 1 teaspoon
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Oil - 1 tablespoon

To grind

Coconut - 3/4 cup

Cashews- 7 to 8


In a pressure cooker,heat some oil and add the onions..Saute till they turn translucent..Add the ginger-garlic paste and the tomatoes and cook them for few minutes..Add the chicken pieces and keep stirring until the water evaporates.

Add the turmeric powder,chilli powder,coriander powder,cumin powder and salt.Also add a cup of water and close the lid of the cooker and cook on medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes.Switch off the stove..Once all the pressure from the cooker is released, add the coconut cashew paste and keep in sim for 10 miniutes until the oil seperates to the sides..

Serve hot..
