Punjabi Style Chicken

Punjabi Style Chicken, as we are punjabi's and loves to have anything with punjabi version. I prefer to make this on weekends. I know this is a bit time consuming recipe but you have to believe me that its all worth. This dish is full of flavors and 
richness which goes well with Rice, Chapatis, Parathas or Naan.


5 Pieces Chicken Drumsticks
½ Cup Curd
1 tbsp Minced Ginger
1 tbsp Minced Garlic
1 tsp Red Chili Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
2 tsp Cumin Powder
1 Big Onion grated
2 Tomatoes Pureed
3 tbsp Oil / Clarified Butter
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tsp Kasuri Methi
2 tbsp Heavy Cream
Cilantro Leaves for garnish


1) In a bowl marinate chicken with Curd, Ginger, Garlic, Salt, Coriander powder, Cumin powder, squeezed Onion juice. Let the marinate rest for an hour/overnight.

2) In a pan, heat the 2 tbsp oil on medium flame and once hot add in only the Chicken drumsticks from the marinate. Stir well till turns golden brown and crisp. Once done then remove drumsticks from oil.

3) Now add in onions and saute them. Salt the Onion just a bit and cook till brown. Then add in tomato pure and cook until oil separates. Once done let it cool down then grind to make paste.

4) Heat up 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Add in cumin seeds, once they turn brown then add in onion tomato gravy with Chicken marination. Mix and cook for 5 minutes on high flame.

5) Add in the Chicken drumsticks, red chili powder and garam masala, Mix well.

6)  Cover the pan with lid, put the flame on low. Let chicken cook for 10-15 minutes.
