How to make Stir Fry Chicken Balti Curry

  1. First, marinade the chicken with lemon, half of ginger and garlic, mustard oil, salt, half of turmeric, half cayenne, half kashmiri mirch powder and half chopped coriander leaves. Keep the marinade in refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Dry roast on low flame for 4-5 minutes coriander seeds, cumin seeds, dry red chilies, kasuri methi, fennel seeds, black peppercorns, cinnamon stick, cloves and cardamom pods. Cool and grind it to a fine powder.
  3. Beat the yogurt separately in a bowl till it turns smooth. Keep it aside.
  4. Heat a wok or a Balti pan and add oil into it. When it is heated, add hing, shahi jeera and bay leaf. Saute for 2 minutes.
  5. Add chopped onions along with remaining grated/chopped ginger and garlic and green chilies. Saute till the onions brown and translucent.
  6. Add the chopped tomatoes, roasted ground curry powder, cayenne, Kashmiri mirch powder, turmeric and salt as per taste. Stir and fry on medium high heat till the tomatoes get soft and mushy and you can see sparks of oil leaving in the pan.
  7. Add the chicken marinade and stir fry at medium high heat for 7-8 minutes, till the pinkness is gone and the chicken is seared well.
  8. Lower the flame and add the beaten yogurt and stir and mix. Stir and fry on medium high flame till the oil separates.
  9. Add ½ cup of warm water, garam masala and stir fry on medium high flame for another 2-3 minutes.
  10. 10.Take off the pan from the heat. Serve it hot , garnished with chopped coriander and enjoy it with naan or any flatbread.

My Tip:

You can instead use tandoori masala powder if you want to skip the step of roasting and grinding the whole spices.
