Bachelor’s Chicken detailed recipe:
Take 500 gms chicken with bone in a bowl. Now add 1 onion (sliced) along with the chicken.
Then add 1 Tomato (removed the pulp and sliced) and add 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste.
Then add 3 green chillies (you can add more if you prefer more spicy) and 2 sprigs curry leaves.
Now add 2 cinnamon sticks, 5 cloves and 1 tbsp fennel seeds. Then add 1 tbsp chilli powder and 1 tsp turmeric.
Then add salt to taste and 2 tbsp coriander leaves. Keep the remaining coriander leaves for later use.
Now mix everything well using hands so the masala mixes well with the chicken. Once everything is mixed, allow it to marinate or proceed cooking immediately. Take the marinated chicken in a pan (do not add oil or water at this stage).
Let’s cook the chicken for 15 minutes. Cover and cook on medium heat. Chicken will release water and it can be cooked with the natural water. Cover and cook for 15 minutes but keep stirring in between to avoid burning. Once cooked for 15 minutes, add 3 tbsp oil (you can add more oil if you prefer to) and cook for 5 minutes. If your chicken is too matured then cook for 5 more minutes or till the chicken is cooked well.
Chicken is cooked well and look at the below picture after it’s been cooked for 20 minutes.
