Chicken Muzhuman (Whole Chicken in spicy gravy)

Whole chicken in a spicy gravy!! yumm... this is a simple yet lip smacking dish all the way from Malabar. This is famous as ma Mom's special back home.. I did post one other Whole Chicken gravy before named Chicken Musuman . Musuman and Muzhuman both refers to whole chicken; but the recipe is entirely different. Here, the gravy is a little bit dry compared to the other and spicy too.





Ingredients:

Chicken( whole)

Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Lime juice of 1 lemon
Onion 2 cups
Tomatoes 1 1/2 cup
Ginger garlic paste 2 tsp

Green Chilli 2
Red chilli powder 2 tbsp ( mix it with water & make paste)
Coriander leaves 1/2 cup



Method:

Wash and clean chicken nicely both inside and outside. Give slits here and there ; especially to the breast portion.


Marinate chicken with turmeric powder, lime juice & salt . Keep it for a minimum of 1/2 an hr.


In another pan ,saute onions till it turns translucent and then add salt, ginger- garlic paste , green chillies & tomatoes. Saute for about 2 minutes.


Add red chilli paste and saute till the masala leaves the sides of the pan.


Now place the chicken in the masala. Coat the chicken well with the masala; both interior and exterior. Now close the lid in low fire till the chicken is cooked well.

Check the masala whether it sticks to the bottom. Use water if needed. Give a stir in between while taking care that the chicken is not broken. 

Turn the chicken upside down when it is half done. 

Switch off the flame when all the water evaporates and chicken is well cooked. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rotis ,pathiris or even rice.
