Chicken fry with Poppy seeds

This fry is some what different from chicken fry i have in my blog. This chicken has a different taste as poppy seeds are added to the fry at the end. Usually poppy seeds are grounded to fine paste and added to the curries or fries and are cooked along with the chicken/mutton or veggies. But in this poppy seeds are added later. Here is the recipe:-


Chicken 1 pound
Ginger garlic paste 2 tbsp
Red chilly powder 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 2 tbsp
Curd 1 cup
Chopper coriander 1/4 cup

Marinate all of the above ingredients for 10-15 minutes.

Take a cooker add 2 tbsp of oil. When hot add chicken and water. Mix well and pressure cook for 2 whistles.

Now for fry.

Cinnamon 1
Cloves 3
Shahi zeera 1 tsp
Zeera 1/2 tsp
Onions 1
Ginger garlic paste 1tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Garam masala powder 1 tbsp

Take a kadai. Add 2 tbsp of oil. Once hot add cinnamon,cloves,shahi zeera and zeera for a while. Add onions and saute until the onions are light brown in colour.

Add water from the chicken. Cook until the water thickens into gravy.Now add garam masala powder and then add chicken.  Fry until all the gravy evaporates. Now add 1 tsp coconut powder , poppy seeds 1 tbsp and chopped coriander  leaves 1/2 cup.Saute for another 2 minutes and lastly add 1 tbsp of lemon juice.

Serve hot with roti or hot rice.
