How to make Perfect Chicken Handi

  1. Wash the chicken pieces and dab it well.
  2. Apply ginger-garlic paste and yogurt to the chicken along with all the masalas. Mix it well and marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. Finely dice the tomatoes and boil in a cup of water till it's tender for 10 minutes. Sieve and boil the tomatoes to remove the skin and seeds. Then make and keep the puree aside.
  4. Separately boil the onions in 1/2 cup of water till it's soft and grind to form a paste. Sieve the onion paste as well and keep it aside.
  5. Heat oil in a pot, then add the marinated chicken and stir fry for 5 minutes. To this add the tomato puree and onion paste. Mix it well together.
  6. Cover this on a low flame and cook for 15- 20 minutes till the oil separates. (Check to see if the chicken is tender)
  7. Stir in the fresh cream, chopped coriander leaves and the melted butter.
  8. Remove from heat and serve it immediately with hot rotis, naans or parathas.

My Tip:

If using commercially packed fresh cream, add milk to make it thin before use.
