Chicken Curry With Potato

I wanted to make chicken curry, but did not want to make it the way I usually do. I remembered reading PreeOccupied's "Kancha Lonka Murgi" thought of making it. I just made a couple of changes like adding some potatoes and and using fewer chillies.
I do not handle the heat from the chillies too well... I start tearing up and my nose starts running. And I love..love...LOVE potatoes in my chicken curry.

What I needed:

  • 8 pieces of skinless boneless chicken. You can use bone-in.
  • I potato, cubed
  • 1 1/2 tbs of oil. I used mustard oil.
  • 3 Green Chillies
  • 2 Black Cardamom
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1tsp coriander powder
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1inch ginger
  • 4-5cloves of ginger
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 C water
What I did:
  • Washed the chicken, patted dry with a paper towel and seasoned with salt and kept aside.
  • Added oil to a non-stick pan, and once it was hot added the back cardamoms, bay leaves, green chillies and finely chopped onions and cooked till the onions turned a nice golden brown.
  • Using a mortar and pestle I made a paste of garlic, ginger and 1 green chilly.
  • Added the chicken and the potatoes and cooked till both turned slightly brown.
  • Added the ginger/garlic/chilly paste and coriander powder and turmeric to it and cooked it covered till it started releasing oil.
  • Added the salt and water to it and cooked for another 6 or 7minutes and it was all done.

We ate it for lunch with rice and for dinner with some pita bread. It was spicy and perfect.
