Saunf chicken


There are certain recipes which always remain our favorites and we can never be tired of cooking them over and over again. One such favorite recipe that I cook often and is enjoyed by my family and friends is the sombu chicken curry. This chicken curry recipe is not a fancy one, very simple, straightforward and quick to make.

Sombu is the only seasoning used, which enriches the flavour, aroma & taste of this dish. This is one of my comfort chicken dish especially during my weekdays menu.

Ingredients :

  1. Chicken - 500gms
  2. 2 medium sized Onion
  3. 1 medium sized Tomato
  4. 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  5. 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  6. 2 tsp Chilly powder
  7. 1 tsp Corriander powder
  8. Saunf (Fennel seeds) - 2 tsp
  9. Oil- 2 tbsp
  10. Salt to taste
  11. Corriander leaves

Directions to cook :

  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a heavy bottomed pan, fry onions till golden brown.

  • Add ginger garlic paste & tomato and cook till all the ingredients are well blended.

  • Grind the onion tomato mixture & keep aside.

  • Heat oil in a frying pan, add the saunf & when it just start to brown, add the onion paste & stir well.

  • Add the chicken pieces & stir well.

  • Add the chilly powder, corriander powder & salt and cook till the chicken pieces are tender.

Garnish it with corriander leaves.

A tasty saunf chicken is ready in a matter of minutes. We have this with chapattis & goes better with rice as well :)
