Wash the chicken thoroughly with water at least for 2-3 times. Finally add ¼ tsp of turmeric powder and wash the chicken to get rid of any smell.

Grind the cashew nuts to fine paste with little water.

Heat oil in a kadai, add cinnamon sticks, cloves, fennel seeds and let it fry until nice aroma fills the room.

Add the dry red chillies, bay leaves and fry for about 20 to 30 seconds.

Add the finely chopped onions and fry until they turn golden brown colour.

Now add the ginger & garlic paste and fry until the raw smell vanishes.

Add the finely chopped tomatoes and sauté well. Add ¼ cup of water, cover and cook the tomatoes until they turn mushy and completely cooked.

Add the washed chicken and give a good stir, wait until the chicken starts to change colour.

Now add 3 tsp of black pepper powder, 2 tsp of cumin powder/Jeeragam Powder, ¼ tsp of turmeric powder, salt and mix thoroughly.

Add 2 cups of water to the chicken, cover and cook for about 10-12 minutes.

Open the lid, by now the chicken will be cooked through and will look as shown in the photo.

Now add 2 tsp of black pepper powder and mix well.  Add the ground cashew nut paste and give a stir. Keep in low flame for another 2 minutes.

Add the finely chopped cilantro, mix well and switch off the stove.

Adjust the amount of salt and water according to your requirement.
The given amount of black pepper powder will be spicy enough for the chicken, if you add more pepper powder, it will turn bitter.

Delicious and mouth-watering Kumbakonam kozhi Milagu is ready to enjoyed. Serve it with plain white rice, pulav or with any bread varieties, rotis or naans.
