  • Once we get powdered masala,add  freshly grated coconut and grind it until we get a coarse mixture.Keep this aside.
  • In a pan add enough oil ,bay leaf,green chillies and sliced onions.
  • Saute it until onions become translucent .Add 1/4 th tsp of turmeric powder and 2 tsp of kashmiri chilli powder,which will give a nice colour for this dish.
  • Add marinated chicken pieces and let this cook for 6-8 minutes in medium flame until chicken gets cooked well.
  • Add coarse mixture of coconut and mix well.
  • Sprinkle some water just to combine everything well .
  • Add salt  and let this cook for another 3 minutes ,so that chicken will absorb all the flavours of the masala .
  • Finally garnish with some coriander leaves and switch off the flame.

If u want you can add a small piece of tamarind while grinding the masala. Since i have added some lemon juice while marination ,i have skipped this ingredient.
