Healthy Chicken Curry for a weight loss diet
Hello Friends! Today i am going to cook healthy chicken curry.
Ingredients are : 500gms fresh chicken Red chilly powder, Ginger garlic paste, lemons, 2 tea spoonful turmeric powder & coriander powder 1 teaspoonful butter, 1/2 cup of curd, salt per your taste, 2-3 red chillies (dry), 3-4 cloves, bay leaf, cinnamon, black pepper, black & green cardamom pods (1 each).
Also, we need 4 medium sized (cut on length) onions.
Now we will marinate the chicken.
For this we will add curd to the chicken.
Half cup of curd is enough for 500gms of chicken.
Now we will add turmeric powder Add two small spoons of turmeric powder Two small spoons of coriander powder.
2 spoonful of red chilly powder.
Add 2 spoonfuls of ginger garlic paste.
Two small spoonfuls of salt (or as per your taste) Now we add lemon juice by squeezing it on the mixture.
Now mix this mixture properly for 3-4 minutes.
After mixing it properly, close the lid of container and leave it for 30-45 minutes.
Now we take a pressure cooker and add 1 tea spoonful of butter to it.
Once the butter has melted.
we add bay leaf and red chillies.
Then add onions to the cooker.
Now mix it properly for around 2 minutes.
Stove or heater should be set on medium right now Now add the marinated chicken to it.
Now stir the mixture properly for around 2 minutes so that spices are mixed thoroughly.
Flame/heat should continue to be set on medium.
Again stir it after 2 minutes.
Now we add the spices including cardamom pods, cinnamon, black pepper and cloves.
For enhanced taste, grind the spices a bit.
Stir it again for some time for a minute or two.
Now close the lid of cooker.
Remember NOT to add water at all.
With flames/heat still medium, let it cook for some time.
After 5-7 minute (or 4 whistles) open the lid.
Observe that there is a lot of gravy now with the chicken which is because of the chicken.
This is pretty healthy as we just used onions & garlic for gravy.
both of which help reduce cholesterol.
Now add a few mint leaves to serve the chicken in a bowl Your hot healthy chicken curry is now ready.
Serve the "yummilicious" and soupy chicken now.
