Chicken curry with Coconut milk and 'm Back

Hi All, I am back from an exciting vacation in India.All the weddings went well and we had a mellow time shopping n njoying and spoiled by all the pampering from parents..The only unbearable thing was the summer heat there, and it occasionally made both of us sick...Though  we are back, physically, our hearts are still in India,the kitchen is still closed and i m not sure when i m gonna resume cooking ;).So i thought i ll first play around with some drafts that i have, get inspiration and start cooking :)..
Hope you all are having a beautiful time in the summer...


Ingredients:-
Chicken - 1/2 kg
Onion chopped - 2 medium
Green chili chopped - 2
Ginger chopped - 1 tsp
garlic chopped - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
crushed pepper corns- 1/2 tsp
Thick coconut milk - 1 cup
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Cardamom - 5-6

Star anise - 2
Bay leaves
Curry leaves

Method

When sauteed well add chopped onion, green chili,ginger and garlic and saute till the raw 
smell disappears and the it turns light brown. Stir in the chicken pieces and toss well for 2-3 minutes.
Pour in half cup of hot water( add 1 cup if you want more gravy) and cook this covered for 20 
minutes on a low flame.
Make a paste with turmeric powder, and garam masala, by adding 3 tspns of water and add 
to the curry.mix well and add salt , crushed peppercorns and curry leaves and let it stand for 2 minutes. 
Add 1 cup of thick coconut milk , stir well and remove from fire as soon as the gravy thickens.

Loved your blog. I am reminded of Thai Green curry chicken with this recipe. If you add coriander and fish sauce and exclude ginger, you would have made a Thai green curry!
Lovely presentation.
