Onion Masala Chicken


For Marinate:
500 g of chicken (I used drumsticks)
2 tsp of red chilli powder
1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt

 Marinate all the ingredients above for at least 30 minutes.

For Gravy:
5 large onions (thinly sliced)
2 large tomatoes (chopped)
1 tsp of ginger garlic paste
2 tsp of red chilli powder
1 1/2 tsp of coriander powder
1/2 tsp of cumin powder
Handful of coriander leaves
1 pc of cinnamon stick
1 pc of star anise
2 pcs of cardamom
4 pcs of cloves
1 bay leaf
4 tbsp of oil
1 1/2 cup of water
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan, fry all the whole garam masala and 2 onions until onions are soft, then add ginger garlic paste, coriander powder, red chilli powder, cumin powder and fry in the oil. Now add chopped tomato and cook until tomatoes turn mushy. The oil will separate and masala will be cooked well.

Now to the above masala add the marinated chicken and incorporate well with the masala, then add water and salt, let the chicken cook and gravy thickens. Now add balance 3 onions that have been sliced and let it soften. Finally add coriander leaves, now our Onion Masala Chicken is ready to be served.
