Malvani Chicken

According to Indian calendar, Shravan Month is going to start from next week. We do not cook Nonveg at home from Shravan till Ganesh festival. So to make my husband happy I prepared Malvani chicken for the first time at home. And after tasting it he immediately gave a comment that This is the one of the best chicken curry, I have ever tasted. Malvan is a town located in Sindhudurg District - southernmost district of Maharashtra. This is a coastal area. So Malvani cuisine is mostly having lots of coconut in their food. So first time I have used fresh coconut in chicken curry.




Ingredients

Chicken - 500 gms.
Grated coconut - 2 cups
Curd - 1/4 cup
Onion - 2
Rice - 1 teaspoon
Garlic cloves - 5-6
Ginger - 1 inch
Green chilly - 1
Coriander leaves - 1 tablespoon
Malvani Masala - 2 tablespoon
Garam Masala - 1 teaspoon
Tuemeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Oil- 2 tablespoon
Salt to taste.


Procedure

Make paste of Garlic, ginger, Green chilly and coriander leaves. Wash and clean chicken pieces. Marinate it with malvani masala,turmeric powder,curd and ginger,garlic, green chilly paste. Keep aside for half an hour. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in kadai and fry sliced onion till it gets brown. Then add fresh coconut and fry till brown. Then add rice and fry for 2 minutes. Cool it and make a thin paste of it.You can add little water if needed. Now heat remaining oil in kadai and fry marinated chicken for 5 minutes. Now add onion-coconut paste, garam masala and salt and mix wel. Add little water and cover it to cook. It took 6-7 minutes to cook the chicken neatly. Malvani Chicken is ready. Garnish it with coriander and serve it with roti, bhakri or rice.

Excellent recipe, although consider you need to consider someone who is not familiar with the type of food cooking would be confused.. for eg-Rice to be added (cooked or uncooked?) Got some malvan masala from malvan courtesy a friend and tried your style.. excellent! BTW I agree with most malvani people when they say gavti chicken is necessary also eliminating the haldi can give you a really red curry which belies the actual taste of the curry looking really spicy but tasting really good.. excellent, thanks!

@ Suhail Thnaks a lot and I am glad that you like the recipe.

Will definitely consider your suggestions. And next time I'll try Malvani chicken by eliminating Haldi :-)
