This is a recipe I created one day when I was in the mood for chicken curry, but also needed to use up some capsicums. I love this dry curry and it is a huge hit with my friends too. It is very spicy and tastes great with parathas.
Mix chicken with salt and turmeric powder. Set aside for 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a frying pan or kadhai. Add onions and cook till brown. Now add the chicken pieces and fry for 5 minutes till they are brown. Add the capsicum and green chillis and fry for 5 more minutes.
3. Grind the dry masala ingredients and add to the chicken. Add ½ cup water, coconut powder, and salt to taste. Add red chilli powder. Cook for 30 minutes, or until chicken is tender. If the curry is too wet, cook on high till water evaporates. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
