Spicy Country Chicken Kurma / Naatu kozhi Kurma

After reading a article about the broiler chicken effects from FB, now i try to use mostly country chicken only. Though they have less flesh, our family started liking its taste now a days. So here is the recipe, which I prepared yesterday.

To marinate

  • Country Chicken - 1/2 kg
  • Chilli powder - 3 to 4 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp
To grind

  • Grated coconut - 4 tsp
  • Poppy seeds - 2 tsp
  • Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
For gravy

  • Oil - 3 tsp
  • Cloves - few
  • Cinnamon stick - 1 inch
  • Fennel/Saunf - 1/2 tsp
  • Star Anise - 1
  • Ginger garlic paste
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Dry red cillies - 2 
  • Onion - 1 big
  • Tomato - 1 
  • Salt - as needed
  • Coriander leaves for garnishing

  • Wash the country chicken and mix with chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and leave it aside for 1 hr.
  • In a mixer grinder, add the grated coconut, poppy seeds and 1 tsp fennel seeds and little water.
  • Grind to a smooth paste
  • Set it aside
  • In a pan, add oil and when hot, add fennel seeds, star anise, cinnamon stick, bay leaf and cloves
  • Add onions and saute for a minute adding salt.
  • Add dry red chillies, currry leaves and fry for a min and ginger garlic paste.
  • Again saute the onions till it becomes soft.
  • Add tomato and saute again.

  • Add the marinated chicken pieces.
  •  Country chicken, takes more time to cook and so, add more water and let it cook till the chicken becomes tender.
  • Now addin the coconut paste and add some more water and allow to cook for another 5 min.

  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rice.

I have added more chilli powder while marinating the chicken itself. if want to reduce, you can reduce the chilli powder while marinating and add it later as per your taste.
