Chicken Qorma - Light and Fragrant

So you can see that we have got a new look. This is actually because of my Dad who commented the other day that my page looks a little nude and i should make it more glitzy and glamorous.  This is the best i could manage considering i have very limited technical know how.But the cooking continues. Today i was in a hurry but wanted to make something special nevertheless. So i made this "Chicken Qorma" that is completely my mums recipe. There would be many versions of this that you could find but this is the no frills one.Some basic ingredients and u have this really light and fragrant chicken gravy dish.

Ingredients :

Chicken - 500 gms ( i used boneless but it tastes better with the one with bones)

Curd/yoghurt - 200 gms

Onion paste - 2 tbsp

Ginger paste - 1 tbsp

Raisins - a handful

Cashews - a handful

Whole garam masala - 2 each of green cardamom, cloves and cinnamon

Green chillies - 4-5 nos whole

Salt - to taste

Sugar - 1 tsp

Ghee - 1 tbsp

Method :

Clean the chicken and marinate it with the curd.Keep aside.

In a pan, add the ghee, splutter the whole garam masala.

Next tip in the onion - ginger paste and fry until golden brown in colour.

Once that is done, simply add the chicken along with the curd. Add salt, sugar, raisins, cashews, and the green chillies.Cover and let it cook and simmer for 15- 20 mins.

Check if the chicken is cooked, if not let it simmer for another 5-7 mins.

Serve hot with plain rice.

Now isn"t that easy peasy to make!!
