Naatu Kozhi Kuzhambu / Country style chicken curry

This is a very authentic country side chicken curry.The highlight of this dish is ,it is fully cooked in sesame oil.Sesame oil,gives immense taste and flavour to the curry.The roasted masala adds its part of flavour.When we had a pot luck,sho brought this curry,as saras brought kushka.I was curious in knowing both the recipes.So prepared it asap.This was our sunday lunch with kushka.It goes very well with kushka.Actual recipe called in for whole garam masala,but I have avoided it.Will post the kushka recipe soon.


Ingredients;
1.Chicken                      -             1 pound
2.Onion                         -              1/2 (big)
3.Tomato                      -               1
4.G&G paste                -               1 tsp
5.Cilantro                    -                hand full

For marinating chicken:
1.Chicken
2.Turmeric pwdr           -              a pinch
3.Chilli pwdr                -              1 tbsp
4.G&G paste                 -              1 tsp
5.Lemon juice               -               2 tbsp

For Dry roasting:
1.Onion                        -              1/2
2.Pepper  corns            -              3/4 tsp
3.Cumin seeds              -              1 1/2 tsp
4.Fennel seeds             -               3/4  tsp

For grinding:
1.Coconut                    -             3 pieces
2.Fennel seeds            -              1/2 tsp

For tempering:
1.Sesame oil               -             2 tbsp
2.red chilies                -             2
3.Fennel seeds            -              1/2 tsp
4.whole garam masala-              ( cinnamon,cardamom,cloves) optional
5.Curry leaves            -               few

Method:
* Cut and wash the chicken.Marinate with the items stated under the title "For marinating".Keep it aside for half an hour to one hour.This method is very important for the chicken to get infused with the masala well.
* Take a pan,add a tsp of oil, roast pepper corns,cumins seeds and fennel seeds.Remove it and add onion to the pan.Let it get sauteed well.After cooling,grind it into a fine paste and keep it aside.

* Grind the coconut and fennel seeds into a fine paste.The paste shud be very smooth and thick.

* Now take a pan,add sesame oil and temper with the ingredients under "for tempering". Add the chopped onion and scald in well.Sprinkle some salt and toss it.Let the onion turn translucent.Add the ginger garlic paste and saute it well.Now add the chopped tomato ,sprinkle salt and cover it.Wait for 2 mins or untill the tomatoe gets mashed up.

* Now dump in the marinated chicken and cook covered .When the chicken is cooked,add the grinded onion mixture and mix it.The onion will start separating  oil.Now add the grinded coconut mixture and cover it.Let the flame be low.Bring it to a boil.

* Garnish with cilantro and turn off .Serve with kushka,white rice,rotis or idlies.
