Parsee Red Chicken Curry

Previously said that I received a Fabulous Giveaway Book of '50 great Curries of India' from Mrs.Reva of
Karasaaram  for the Royal Feast Biryani Event(Thanks again Dear) & delighted to do a recipe from this book. Though its a Lent time till Easter and we don't spend much on Fooditems this period strictly avoiding all Non-Veg food preparation,making it as simple as possible, yet happy to post a Chicken Curry from that book. Its called Red Chicken Curry(A Parsee Preparation) since its done with less ingredients n needs less cooking time.

The Author Camila Punjabi says that this Mumbai Parsee homestyle Curry yields a bright red chicken Curry which has a Goan influence on this curry. The rich red colour is from the use of Good-quality Kashmiri Red Chillies and I tried this recipe with boneless Chicken and added a greenchilli (optional) as it needed in the last stage to make it spicy good. The crushed bayleaf added may luk like curry leaves in the clicks. Strict Vegetarians can try this recipe with baby potato, paneer, mushroom, capsicum, Cauliflower or soy chunks. Enjoy Easy homemade Curries and Enjoy Ur Meal!. Now to the Droolworthy Chicken recipe!.

Parsee Red Chicken Curry
400 gms Boneless Chicken
3-4 Kasmiri Red chillies - soaked in warm water for 20 mins
2 cm sized ginger pieces

1/4 tsp cumin seeds
3/4 tsp coriander seeds
1 cm sized cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf - crushed
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp or salt to taste
1.Grind kashmiri red chillies,ginger,garlic,cinnamon,cumin and coriander seeds into a fine paste using 1 tbsp water. Add onions and tomatoes and grind it fine again and gather it.
2.Heat oil in a pressure pan and fry bay leaf for 30 secs, then the paste and saute well for abt 4-5 mins till oil separates on top.
3.Add chicken pieces and stir-fry for 2 mins.
4.Add 1 cup water and salt to taste and cover and cook upto 4 whistles.(or U can cook it on slow fire too for abt 20 mins - stirring it gently when needed). Turn off the flame. Leave it for 10  mins for the pressure to be released.
5.Open the lid  and stir-cook for 2-3 mins on medium flame gently till water runs semi-dry.
6.Garnish with Coriander leaves and serve it hot with rice.
U can add 1 1/4 tsp kashmiri red chilli powder for the curry if U r not able to go for the K.Red chillies.
