Masala chicken recipe

Follow these steps to make the dish

Begin with heating some oil in a cooker. To this, add jeera, laung and badi elaichi. Now, add a pinch of dalchini. While one can also use a cinnamon stick but we prefer using the powder instead. 

Following this, add chopped onions and green chilli. Let it cook till the onions turn golden brown. Once done, add the ginger-garlic paste and saute it for a minute. Next up, add tomato pure and haldi powder. 

Cook it for about two minutes before adding boneless chicken. To this, add fresh cream and salt as per taste. You can also add a bit of red chilli if you wish to make the dish extra spicy. We haven’t used any in our dish. 

Finally, close the lid of the cooker and let the chicken cook for 10 minutes. Serve it in a handi either with naan bread or roti or mint paratha.
