Wash and cut the chicken pieces to medium size and keep it aside. I have used chicken with bone, but you can use boneless chicken as well.

In a mixer add dry red chillies, coriander seeds, black pepper, cumin seeds, ginger, garlic cloves and grind it to fine paste with little water. Keep it aside.

Heat about 2 tbsp of oil in a pan/kadai, add the finely chopped onion [ 2 onions] and saute until golden brown color.

Now break the eggs and add it to the onions, required salt and make  egg bhurji/porial. 

Transfer it to a plate and keep it aside.

In the same kadai add the ground masala paste, washed chicken pieces, tomato, rest of the chopped onions, salt, turmeric powder, with about ¾ to 1 cup water and cook until the chicken is soft and well cooked. Do not forget to cover and cook the chicken.

Cook the chicken until there is no water, add rest of the oil little by little and fry the chicken.

Now add the egg poriyal/bhurji to the chicken and mix really well as shown in the photo and switch off the stove.

Finally add the chopped cilantro and mix well. Save some cilantro for garnishing before serving.

Delicious and tempting Ceylon Chicken Fry is ready to be enjoyed. This Ceylon Chicken Fry can be served as side dish for sambar rice, or simple rasam rice or even as side dish for rotis or chapathis.
