There are two cheat cheat recipes here - a chicken tikka or red chicken curry - go with the flow . This is a super fast recipe - while your chicken cooks make the gravy simultaneously and you are done in 25-30 minutes
1 Chicken - Cut to size.
1 Tablespoon Garlic Paste.
2 Tablespoons Tandoori Masala / Chicken or Meat Masala ( I used Tandoori ).
1 Teaspoon Salt.
1 Teaspoon Kashmiri Red Chili Powder.
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper Powder.
1 Tablespoon Curd.
1 Tablespoon Oil - I use Mustard Oil.
Make slits in pieces and marinate in the above for an hour or more.Then either you can wok fry chicken till done cooking covered , adding splashes of water if needed or you make bake covered with foil at 180C for 25 minutes. In both cases retain all juices.This chicken is now ready to eat as a kabab , or you may make it into a curry as I did
2 Large Onions - Chopped.
4 Large Tomatoes - Pureed
2 Teaspoons Kashmiri Mirh Powder ( For Color )
1.5 Teaspoon Ginger Paste.
1.5 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
1/2 Teaspoon Green Ilachi Powder.
1-2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice.
1/2 Teaspoon Sugar.
Chilies to taste.
Heat oil , add onions , when translucent add ginger, garlic and tomato puree and cook covered till oil comes on top.Add chilies , then add in the cooked chicken , simmer for a while , add water to get the desired gravy . By now chicken would have added its flavors into the gravy too - taste , add salt , sugar and lemon juice - need more chilies , add that .
Take off heat ,stir in some dhania greens and allow chicken to rest covered.When ready to eat add in ilachi powder.That straightforward and simple !
