  • Method

  • Step-1
    I used chicken that I marinated in a mix of masala, curd and lemon juice. Masala I used was a mix of chilli, coriander, turmeric, dry mango powder, cum powder and black pepper, 2 gram ghee with about 50gram curd for 500 gram chicken. I haven't added the macros for marination as they are negligible for the 100 gram chicken used.
  • Step-2
    Boil the 100 gram channa for 5 whistles, approx 20 mins (after soaking them for 5-8 hours, duh!)
  • Step-3
    Separate the boiled channa from its broth (save the broth)
  • Step-4
    Add 5 grams ghee to a pan
  • Step-5
    on medium heat, place the chicken breast over the ghee
  • Step-6
    let it roast on one side for 4-5 mins
  • Step-7
    While the chicken is getting cooked, add 5 gram ghee to another pan
  • Step-8
    Throw in all the dry spices (cloves, black peppercorns, bay leaf, etc)
  • Step-9
    add the chopped chilli
  • Step-10
    after stirring for 30 seconds, add in the boiled channa
  • Step-11
    stir the channa in the ghee for about 5 min
  • Step-12
    add about 50 ml channa broth
  • Step-13
    add all the masalas ( haldi, lal mirch, cumin powder, coriander, kasturi methi) and salt as per taste
  • Step-14
    cook the masala for 2 mins
  • Step-15
    add 100 ml channa broth
  • Step-16
    keep cooking it until the gravy has reduced to desired thickness
  • Step-17
    Hope you haven't forgotten about the chicken. You should have cooked it for 4-5 minutes on both sides.
  • Step-18
    Garnish the channa with coriander and place the chicken on the gravy. Bismillah!
