Baked Chicken Gravy

Baked Chicken Gravy
Since everyone in my family are chicken lovers-I always like to try new recipes to improve the taste of the normal chicken curry with a lot of spices. This was my hubby's creation and it tasted very good as we try out with briyani and it was really so delicious. At the end I was left with just a piece of just vanished:)

For the Paste:
2 cups chopped shallots
2tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 bunch chopped corinader leaves
1 bunch chopped mint leaves
3 green chillies
1tsp turmeric powder
1tsp poppy seeds
1tsp fennel seeds
1tsp nutmeg powder
1tsp salt

Add 2tbsp ghee to wok and roast all the ingredient til fragrant and grind to a paste once cool and keep aside.

2 tomatoes chopped
2tbsp curry masala
2tbsp chicken masala
1tsp gram masala
1tsp chillie powder
1tbsp coriander powder.

Add another 2tbsp ghee and saute the tomatoes til tender followed by all the spice powder.Fry them until the oil starts to separate- then add the grind masala, Saute til they turn to brown and set aside.Spicy masala paste is ready.

2 packet chicken drumstick
1 cup chopped onions
a sprig curry leaves
1tsp mustard seeds
1tsp cumin seeds
1 cinnamon stick
salt to taste

Preparation Methods:

Wash the drumstick and pat dry on kitchen towel. Slit the drum stick and arrange then in a baking dish. Pour the masala paste and mix and mix well.Refrigerate overnight or two days before actual cooking. This way the drumstick will soak up the masala paste well. Add 2tbsp oil to a skillet t and splutter the curry leaves,mustard seeds,cumin seeds and cinnamon sticks followed by the chopped onions.

Saute until the turn slightly brown.Remove from flame and add the the marinate chicken drumstick and bake for 45 minutes at 400 °F.Remove from oven and mix them well and bake for a another 45 minutes at 300°F.
