1 tsp Salt

1/2 Cup Water

2 Tbsp Oil

1 Tbsp Ginger paste

1 Cup Tomato Puree

1 tsp Ghee

1/2 tsp Turmeric powder

1/2 tsp Red chilli powder

1 Tbsp Garlic paste

2 tsp Cumin powder

1 Cup Coriander leaves

2 tsp Coriander powder


In a large saucepan heat oil and ghee together over a medium flame.

Add onion paste and cook for a minute or two to get a golden pink color.

Then add ginger and garlic paste. Mix well.

Cover the pan and let it cook for few minutes to get a little thick paste. Make sure the paste doesn’t burn.

After it has cooked, open the pan and add turmeric powder along with salt. Stir well until it appears as a yellow thick paste.

Add tomato puree and cook for a minute.

Add coriander powder, red Chilli powder, cumin powder and Garam Masala.

Put the chicken leg pieces in the gravy and cook for 5 minutes.

Make sure that chicken is well coated and then add coriander leaves.

Add some water to it and bring it to the boil for about 2 minutes.

Transfer this curry to a pressure cooker.

Give it 4-5 whistles for the chicken to get soft.

Cook more if it is not cooked properly.

Put the curry in a serving bowl. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot.
