Chicken in Coconut & Peanut Gravy

I am back with Chicken but today I tried chicken in coconut and peanut gravy and it turned out very delicious. The chicken is mildly spiced because coconut milk neutralizes the spices. It’s a perfect dish to cook for a small lunch or dinner.

500 gm chicken cut in small pieces
1/2 cup roasted peanut powder
1/2 cup coconut powder
1/2 cup coconut powder
1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
10 curry leaves
2 bay leaves
2 green chili chopped
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 mid sized bowl chopped onion
4 tablespoon onion paste
1 teaspoon red chili powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon garam masala powder
1 tablespoon ginger & garlic paste
4 tablespoon butter
1 bowl chopped tomato
4 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup curd
1 tablespoon mustard oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon black pepper powder
2 whole red chili
1 tablespoon chicken masala

1.       Clean chicken with water and keep it aside for 5 minutes to drain out excess water
2.       Make a thick paste by mixing salt, turmeric powder, mustard oil, onion paste, tomato paste, roasted peanut powder, coconut powder, curd and 1 small spoon of ginger & garlic paste
3.       Add this paste to chicken pieces and leave it for 3 to 4 hours to marinate

2.       After that add chopped tomatoes and when the oil starts to leave the mixture it’s an indication that the onion & tomatoes base mixture is ready
3.       Then add coconut milk and boil it for 5 minutes
4.       Add Chicken to this mixture and keep it on light flame for 10 minutes and then add butter and mix it well
