KOLI CHICKEN CURRY
250g Potatoes | parboiled, unpeeled, quartered
Dry roast 1 cup coconut (grated) in a suitable pan. Roast until light brown. Let it cool and transfer it into a wet grinder. Add just enough water to make a thick fine paste. Keep aside.
In the same pan, add 1 Tbs oil, keep heat low and roast the chicken pieces till they are about half done. Keep turning the pieces around to get even surface roasting and the chicken does not stick to the pan. Remove heat and move the chicken pieces into a plate.
In the same pan, heat 5 Tbs oil. Add 2 tej patta, 2 tsp cumin seeds, and 3 black cardamom (lightly crushed). When the cumin starts to splutter add 250g onion (chopped fine). Fry onion until brown. Add 2 Tbs ginger-garlic paste, the coconut paste—from Step 1—stir fry for 30 seconds. Add 3 Tbs koli masala. Mix well and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Lower heat to lowest and add ¼ cup water and cook till the oil separates. Add potato pieces and chicken pieces. Mix well. Add 2 cup water and salt (to taste). Cook covered 10 minutes or till chicken is done. Serve with chapati, bhakri or steamed rice.
