Nimi's Culinary Ventures


I was looking forth to try out this recipe since the day I saw it on a television show.Although the recipe was a bit of time consuming Iwas quite happy with the results.I made this for dinner with Paalappams .Well it goes well with rice too.
1 1/2 kg chicken pieces
1 coconut scraped
1 tsp Black pepper
1 1/2 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp yellow turmeric powder
1 tsp Fennel seeds
5 large onions sliced
2 pieces of ginger
10-15 cloves of garlic
Curry leaves
3 tbsp coconut oil
Salt to taste
For marinating
4 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp yellow turmeric powder
a pinch of fenugreek roasted and powdered
1 1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
2 tbsp vinegar

  • Marinate the chicken pieces with chilli powder,turmeric powder,coriander powder,fenugreek powder,garam masala along with salt and vinegar.Keep it aside for 1/2 an hour.
  • Coarsely grind the scraped coconut,large onions,ginger,garlic,black turmeric, fennel seeds , red chilli powder,turmeric powder, garam masala all together.
  • After the time span mix the ground mixture well with the marinated chicken pieces.
  • In a heavy bottomed wok on flame,pour 3 tbsp oil and add in the chicken mix.Stir and cover the vessel with a vessel keeping it on low flame.
  • After 5 minutes you can see the water coming out from the chicken.Stir the chicken and close the lid again.Take care that the chicken doesnt stick to the wok.
  • Repeat the procedure till the chicken is well cooked.If you feel that the chicken is sticking to your pan too much ..drizzle oil lightly on the sides of the wok ¬†and stir well.
  • Stir till the chicken mix becomes dark brown.It took me an hour and half.
  • Add the curry leaves and 1 tbsp of coconut oil over the chicken ularthu.
  • Mix well and remove from flame.
