This is one of my favorite chicken recipes- its my Grandfathers. It is simple and delicious…
- 2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs
- 3 teaspoons ground coriander
- 2 teaspoons salt
Marinate the chicken pieces with the coriander and salt for 2 to 3 hours.
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 6 garlic cloves, peeled
- 1 cup dill, chopped
- 1 cup cilantro, chopped
Process the onion, garlic, dill and cilantro. Keep aside.
- 2 tablespoons ghee or butter
- 1 tablespoon extra light olive oil
- 1 half inch cinnamon stick
- 3 cloves
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
Heat a heavy saucepan with the ghee and oil. Brown the chicken pieces on both sides on high heat, 2 to 3 minutes each. Keep aside. Add the cinnamon stick and cloves. Saute for 20 seconds and add the cilantro mixture. Saute on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the chicken and chicken broth and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for half an hour covered. Take the lid off and turn the heat up and cook off the sauce until it thickens a bit. Check for seasonings.
Grind the spices in a coffee grinder and sprinkle on top of the curry. Mix well and let simmer for ten minutes. Serve warm.
