Coorg Coli Curry / Chicken Curry From Coorg.

I was given this recipe a long time ago , never got down to making it. Not quite sure if this is the real thing , nonetheless it is delicious !

1 Kg Chicken - Cut as desired , wash and apply haldi.
Dry roast the ingredients listed till Cinnamon and grind to a coarse powder along with the poppy seeds .
1 Tablespoons Poppy Seeds / Khus Khus ( Soak in water for 20-30 minutes ).
2 tablespoons Coriander Seeds.
10 Dried Red Chilies.
1 Teaspoon Jeera.
1 Teaspoon Black Peppercorns.
1/2 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds.
1" Cinnamon Stick.

Step 2
2 Onions Chopped.
20 Cloves Garlic Chopped.
3-4 Tomatoes Chopped.
1/3 Coconut Grated.
1 Tablespoon Kachampuli ( Use Malt vinegar -1.5-2 tablespoons )

In enough oil fry the onions till golden brow, then add the garlic and fry another minute to color .Next add the ground masala and fry another 2 , then add the grated coconut and fry till you get that nice warm coconut aroma and the masala turns a darkish brown , add the tomatoes and cook till oil separates . You may need water however if you cook this covered you wont, cool the masala and grind to a paste.

Heat 2 Tablespoons oil , return paste to wok , when it starts to cook add the chicken and salt , bhuno on high for a minute ot two , reduce heat and cook covered , stir occasionally .You may need to add water , I added coconut milk extracted from the remaining coconut .
Once chicken is fully cooked add vinegar and a bit of sugar , add water if you want a soft gravy ... blend well and adjust flavors . Delicious !
