Indian Chicken Curry

Spices are the star ingredients for most Indian dishes. Primarily for aroma(s) and flavors. No wonder many say that spices are the way to life for delicious curries. This authentic chicken curry speaks for itself - tender chicken pieces in a spicy curry. While you are still here, take a look at how to also make masala mutton curry, dalca and mutton kurma.

Apologies for the not-so-nice pictures. Ahhh!!! Suppose its a learning curve and I am surely trying to improve on photography skills.  

1 small/400g chicken (cut into bite sizes)
1 1/2 tbsp meat curry powder
1 medium size onion (sliced)
1 tomato ( chopped)
2 sprigs curry leaves
5 dried chillies ( broken)
Spices:  1 cinnamon, 3 cloves, 1 star anize and 4 cardamom
1/2 cup oil
Salt for taste

For spice paste (blend/ground)
1 medium size onion
1 inch ginger
5 pips garlic
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp coriander seeds
3 tbsp fresh coconut
20g/ half handful almonds (without skin)

In heated oil, saute onion, dried chillies and spices.
