How to make Chicken cooked in black sesame paste

  1. In a broad deep vessel , add the refined and mustard oil and let it get heated up , then put the bay leaf and paanch phooran into the oil. Fry for a min then add the sliced onions. Now cook the onions till they r translucent for 3/4 mins then add the onion paste and ginger garlic paste into it. Fry for another 3/4 mins then add salt and turmeric and mix well. Lower the heat and cover and let it cook for 5 mins or so.
  2. After 5 mins add the chicken pieces and cumin powder and pepper powder and mix well and cover it again and let the chicken cook in its own juices for about 15 mins .
  3. For the sesame paste , heat a pan and dry roast the sesame seeds for 2/3 mins then grind it into a paste adding water . Now add this paste into the chicken and turn up your heat and fry everything nicely for about 5 mins then add water and let it simmer by covering for another 15 mins .
  4. At this point your Chicken looks black in colour. Dnt get scared. You can also add water but dnt make the gravy runny, it should be thick.Lastly check your salt and other spices. Sometimes the taste of sesame might not be strong enough so at first try to use less of the paste then add later on. At first i added 3 teaspoon then later on when I checked the taste was not upto the mark so added another 2 teaspoon. After that cooked for sometime and then got that nutty flavour of the sesame in the chicken . It was a different dish altogether.Dnt use garam masala at all . Enjoy this Assamese cuisine with your rice. I had it with plain rice and tomato and onion salsa.Yummy it was. Hope you make this and have a wonderful meal.
