Simple Chicken gravy Recipe with step by step photos

Hi guys i'm back after a really long time to do a receipe post. This is a simple chicken gravy that can be prepared easily with the ingredients which would be available at homes most of the time. You don't need any kind of garam masala sabut or powdered but its guaranteed to be yummy.

Its very simple and tastes really good with rice rather than chapati in my opinion. The pictures are little hazy,  somethings wrong with the camera. I had taken the pics of the recipe 2 months ago and just forgot about it. So without much rambling lets get on with the recipe. This recipe is sufficient for 2-3 people(i hope).

Ingredients :

Chicken : 1/2 kg
Onion : 2 medium sized roughly chopped
Tomatoes : 2 medium sized roughly chopped
green chilles : 2 slit lengthwise
Curry leaves : 2 springs

Masalas :

Red chillie powder : 1 tbs
Tumeric powder : 1/2 tbs
Coriander powder : 2 tbs
Freshly crushed whole black pepper = 1 tbs
Salt : to taste

To Saute :

Jeera  : 1 tbs
Oil : 2-3 tbs

NOTE (optional) : Marinate the chicken in little salt, turmeric powder and 1 tbs vinegar( this helps to cook the chicken faster) for about 1/2 hour.

This time i'm using a earthen pan that i just bought from the local market just to bring in the old world charm.

Let the pan heat up and add the oil to it

Add jeera and let it sputter

Add the chopped onions and the curry leaves

Add the green chillies and saute for some time till the onions are cooked

Now is the time to add the tomatoes and saute again

Add 1 cup of water and the masalas except pepper and let this gravy cook for about 5 mins

Add the marinated chicken

Add little more water, you can skip this step if you don't want more gravy and let this cook for 30 min in sim.

Just before turing off the stove add the pepper powder and serve hot with rice    
I hope you enjoyed this recipe, so do let me know if you have any other way of cooking chicken in a simple way.
