Shahi Chicken

Here comes the recipe for the chicken curry, that I promised from my previous recipe post Cut chicken - 2 pounds Plain Yogurt - 2 cups Onion -1 tinily chopped Tomatoes - 2 Big Almonds -5 Cashew nuts - 5 Coconut - 2 Table spoons ginger garlic paste - 1 Table spoon Fennel seeds/Saunf - 1 tea spoon. Oil - 1 Table spoon Dry fenugreek leaves/ Kasuri mehti - 1 Table spoon This is an optional ingredient. Salt, red chilli powder, garam masala - per taste Heat oil and fry onions. Add ginger garlic paste to yogurt and mix well Once onion browns nicely, add the mixture of yogurt and ginger garlic paste. Leave it for about 10 minutes. Once the mixture seems to thicken a little, add chopped tomatoes. Once tomatoes are half cooked, salt ,turmeric, chilli powder and chicken. Cover and let it cook on medium heat. Mean while make a paste of coconut cashews and almonds. Once the chicken is cooked add garam masala and after few minutes add the paste. mix well and let it sit on the heat for about 10 minutes on low heat. Add kasuri methi/dried fenugreek leaves. I think I am going to call it "Shahi chicken". Any other ideas for names will be definetly appreciated. I think substituting vegetables and paneer for chicken in this will be equally good. I have not tried it. Will let you guys know as soon as i try.

A suggestion for making this preparation low cal - use soaked poppy seed paste instead of cashew nuts and almonds. Or may be, a mixture of almonds, cashews, and poppy seeds. Poppy seed paste gives similar texture as these dry fruits. Indian curries are usually a mish-mash of flavours and no single flavour stands out. These kinda substitutions do make a difference but you would not feel as if you are missing anyting.
