How to make Spicy tomato chicken?
Grind garlic and ginger separately and keep aside. Mash tomatoes into a fine paste. Heat oil in a pan and add cut onions, ground ginger, garlic, curry leaves, green chillies and sauté till the oniond become light brown. Add the ground masala, chilly powder,coriander powder, salt and sauté again for a short while. Add pieces of chicken and mix well with the spices. Then add the tomato puree. Cover it and cook till chicken is done. Do not add water. Take it from fire when the gravy becomes thick. Finally add 1tsp garam masala . Add chopped coriander leaves. Stir in cream (instead thick milk can be added). Fry cashew nuts and raisins and decorate the dish with that.
Let the tomato gravy be too thick when you finish cooking, then the cream will make it smooth. If properly done the dish will look reddish brown in colour. Use semi ripe tomatoes.
