How to make Punjabi dhaba style chicken

  1. Marinade the chicken leg pieces with dahi.I had 6 pieces of legs so i took 250 grams of curd, black pepper powder 1 tspn and half tspn salt.Cover the chicken and marinade for at least 30-45 mins. Now make a paste of 2 big size onions a small piece of ginger 8-9 flakes of garlic but make sure each flake is big in size (buy those moti chilke wali lasan) and I dry red chilly .
  2. Keep the paste aside in a bowl, now roast 1 n half tblspn of akhha dhania 1 n half tblspn of jeera ,let them cool and grind along with laung, elaichi, dalchini, akhha kali mirch 1 tspn saunf and make it to a powder and keep aside in a small bowl. Now heat oil +ghee in a kadhai, add 1 tspn sugar and once it is caramelised add the onion ginger garlic paste and fry for about 8-10mins and then add the marinated chicken pieces and cook.
  3. After again 5-7 mins add the sukha masala (dhania jeera +garam masala) 1 tspn degi mirch powder 1 n half tspn haldi, salt and 2 tablespoon of shammi kabab masala which I get it in Mumbai from Noor Mohammadi. Instead of this u all can also use 1 tblspn of meat masala+ 1 tblspn of tandoori chicken masala and cook on slow till the oil starts leaving from the gravy.now add 1 n half small cup of lukewarm water and cover it with a lid and let it further cook on very low flame for sometime till it's gets little dry .
  4. If u quickly want d chicken to get dried up after adding water just mix 1 tspn of cornflour with water n put it in d gravy.in few seconds it's dry and a wonderful colour comes.add 1ntablesppn of desi ghee on top .i don't use coriander leaves to garnish in this preparation but if u all want u surely can .Happy cooking !!!! :

My Tip:

Cook the chicken on medium to low heat.
