How to make Dhaba wala Chicken

  1. Assemble all the ingredients- onion tomato masala, bay leaves, cinnamon, moti eliachi, curd and spices. Clean and wash the chicken pieces.
  2. In a saucepan heat oil and add bay leaves, cumin seeds, cinnamon and moti elaichi to it. When they start to crackle add onion tomato masala and saute it for 3-4 minutes. When the oil starts to separate stir in the spices.
  3. Mix well, added spices will not only release a great aroma it will also add dark red color to the gravy. Stir in the beaten curd. Adding curd will make you loose that rich red color for a while but don't worry it will come back again.
  4. Saute on a low flame till the curd blends in the gravy and the oil separates - dark rich color returns.
  5. Time to move in the chicken pieces. Drop and mix well until they are coated with gravy.
  6. Add water and give it a good stir. Gravy will become liquidy, no worries.
  7. Cover and allow it to simmer for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is tender. And you will notice that the gravy has a smooth and thick consistency.
  8. Add one full Garlic. Cook for another 5 minutes
  9. Eat with Rice, Roti or Naan
