Chicken Podimas [Tamil Nadu Special]

This chicken podimas is a very simple and quick dish that taste totally scrumptious. My mom makes this quite often and serves it with Milagai Killi Potta Sambar or simple Tomato Rasam. This chicken podimas and sambar combo will taste as if they are made for each other. Chicken Podimas is special delicacy of Tamil Nadu coming right out of my kitchen to yours…

Here’s how to make Chicken Podimas with step by step photos…



Ingredients

Chicken [Boneless]
750 gm
Onions
2 big finely chopped
Tomato
1 finely chopped
Ginger & Garlic paste
1 tbsp
Dry Red chillies
8 – 10
Red chilli powder
1 tsp
Coriander powder
2 tsp
Turmeric powder
½ tsp
Curry leaves
10
Gingelly oil/sunflower oil
1 ½ to 2 tbsp
Salt
As needed
Coriander leaves
2 tbsp finely chopped

To Grind

Fennel Seeds
1 tsp
Cinnamon
1 piece
Black pepper corn
1 ½ tsp

Method

Clean and wash the chicken really well. You can either mince the chicken or make it in to very small cubes using knife. I just made very small cubes with knife.

Grind the ingredients mentioned above to fine powder.

Heat oil in a kadai, add onions and saute until it turns golden brown. Now add the ginger & garlic paste and saute until the raw smell goes off.


Add the dry red chillies and saute for about 3 min. Now add the tomatoes, curry leaves, turmeric powder and let it cook until the tomatoes turn mushy.


Add the chicken and saute until it changes color. Now add the ground powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, salt and give good stir for about 5 min.


Add about ¼ cup of water cover and cook the chicken.

Finally when the water is all gone and chicken cooked soft, add coriander leaves and fry until the masala coats well and oil separates out.


Delicious Chicken podimas is ready to be served.

Make a simple Milagai Killi Potta Sambar  and serve this chicken podimas they will taste hevenly or just roll it in chapatis and make some wraps for lunch or dinner.


Suggestions:

I have used red chilli powder and coriander powder, you can very well skip that and add more dry red chillies.

Actually grated coconut is added to the chicken when roasting, I skipped that part. You can add about ½ cup of grated coconut, will make this chicken even more stunning.

When you are serving for your guest, roast some cashew nuts and garnish the chicken for more added taste.
