Equipment and Utensils
Flat metal spoon
Mixer or Blender
1 Big Bowl
400 grams Chicken washed and cut into curry pieces
200 grams (6 small) Potatoes cut into halves
120 grams (2 medium) Onions finely chopped
275 grams (4 large) Tomatoes pureed
½ tablespoon Sesame Seed paste
2 teaspoon Ginger Garlic Paste
1 teaspoon Salt
20 ml Vegetable Oil
1 Coal Piece
1 teaspoon Secret Multi-Spice Masala
¾ teaspoon Kashmiri Red Chili Powder
¼ teaspoon Turmeric Powder
Put oil in a pressure cooker and keep it on medium flame.
When oil is hot, add chopped onions.
Sauté till onion gets caramelized.
Now add ginger garlic paste.
Fry for 1-2 minutes till garlic’s raw flavor is gone.
Now add tomato puree and sesame seed paste along with dry spices.
Mix well, add chicken pieces, salt and 1 cup water.
Close the lid and make the flame high.
After 1 whistle, make the flame low.
Continue cooking on low flame for 10-12 minutes.
Now turn off the flame and wait till pressure is released.
Meanwhile keep the coal piece on high flame.
When pressure is released, open the lid of cooker.
Add an onion skin in the middle of gravy. It will act as a holder.
Next put the hot coal piece on the onion skin. Ensure that it does not sink.
Now add 2-3 drops of ghee or butter on the coal piece.
Fumes will be seen immediately after adding butter or ghee onto the hot coal piece.
Close the lid as soon as you add butter or ghee.
The fumes will get trapped inside and this will give a nice burnt, smokey flavor to the gravy.
Keep the lid closed for just 2 minutes.
After 2 minutes, open the lid, discard the coal piece and onion skin.
