Direction

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!
