How to make Dhaba style spicy chicken

  1. Marinate the chicken in curd, chili powder, turmeric and salt. The longer the marination the better is the taste.
  2. Make a paste of the soaked cashews in milk. Keep aside.
  3. In a deep sauce pan, add in the oil. Add in the chopped onions and saute till pinkish brown in texture.
  4. Add ginger garlic paste and continue cooking on a medium flame.
  5. Add in the coriander powder, black pepper and cumin powder.
  6. Add in the chopped tomato and let it cook for a few minutes.
  7. As soon as the oil separates turn off the heat and cool. Grind and keep aside.
  8. In the same deep sauce pan, add in 1 tbsp of oil and add in the marinated chicken.
  9. Cover and let it cook for 5 minutes, add in the grounded spices along with the cashew paste.
  10. Cook for another 5 minutes then add in the blended gravy.
  11. Add water as per the gravy requirement. I added 1 cup.
  12. Cook covered till the chicken pieces are tender. Add salt.
  13. Serve with a garnish of lemon wedges, fresh coriander and twig of parsley.

My Tip:

You can add 2 - 3 whole green chilies in the gravy before blending to make it extra spicy.

Hi. I want to try your recipe for a party. Just wanted to check that the ground spices are curry leaves, cloves and cinnamon only? Also how much should I increase the masala for 2 kg chicken?
