Chicken Masala (Mangalorean Style)

It is easy and excellent, not hot. Serve it with rice or couscous.



1 kg chicken
4 tbsp curd (plain yoghurt)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsps chilli powder
2 tsps coriander powder
1/4 cup oil
salt to taste


Cut chicken into pieces and marinate with curd and salt and keep aside
for an hour.

Heat oil and fry turmeric. Add onion and fry till light brown. Then add
ginger and garlic mixed in a tbsp of water and stir well. Then add
chilli and coriander mixed in 4 tbsps water. Stir well till oil comes
out clear. Now add the chicken and sufficient water to make good sauce.
Cover and let cook on gentile fire till chicken is done.

with more chilli powder and more garlic, or fresh garlic instead of
