A very simple and effortless preparation using easily available ingredients.Thats what i like most in this recipe.

Here it goes..

Red Onion Sliced – 250 gm

Clean the chicken pieces and mix it with chilly powder,turmeric powder and salt.Add little water and cook it covered in a medium heat.Keep it aside.Heat oil in another pan and throw onion slices into it.Saute it until onion turns translucent.Add ginger,garlic,curry leaves and tomato into it and fry it until tomato turns soft and oil seperates.Now add the cooked chicken into the gray and stir well.Add 1/2 cup of water and let it come to a slow boil.Simmer it until the gray thickens.Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with roti/rice.

    hi, it is a coincidence but the other day one of my friends was telling me about this chicken mulakittathu and she was telling me how easy was it to prepare. but there is a slight variation as to what she said. she told me to pressure cook the masala, i.e., the onions, tomatoes and all that for a whistle and to add the chicken and cook till the chicken is cooked completely. but essentially i think the recipe is the same. all your recipes are great. I love them.

    wow..that’ll be more easier…thanks for the info,zerin…
