This is a simple chicken dish which can be made fast with a few daily available ingredients from the pantry and refrigerator.
This chicken varuval can be mixed with rice and enjoyed or my favorite combination is with rasam rice. It goes very well with rotis also.
Whole chicken pieces - 1 lb
Shallots chopped - 1/2 cup
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Red chilli powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Pepper powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Cinnamon - 1/2 inch piees
Clove - 2
Salt as required
Oil - 2 tablespoon
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a sauce pan and add cinnamon and clove and fry. Add the chopped shallots and fry till slightly wilted.
Now add the Ginger garlic paste and sauté till the raw smells goes. Now add the chicken piece salt, red chilli powder, coriander powder, fry the mixture for a while. Sprinkle some water and close the pan and allow the chicken to cook.
Once the chicken is cooked and well combined with the shallots, open the lid. If there is water in the pan, allow the water to cook and evoperate. The masala should be dry.
Now add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil, pepper powder and finally curry leaves and fry the whole mixture for 2 minute. Allow the curry leaves to give out its flavor.
That's it, check for salt and serve with rice or roti.
Red onions can be used if shallots are not available.
Adjust the amount of pepper and salt according to your taste.
Don't add a lot of water when cooking the chicken, as this is a dry masala
