Miss Mahua’s Kolhapuri Murgi

So Mahua put a gun to my head yesterday and made me make her Kolhapuri Chicken. Here is the result.

Now for the process…

Make a spice blend by heating oil (I used mustard), and adding cumin seeds, whole cinnamon, cloves, black and green cardamoms, dry red chillies (Mahua suggests fresh green chillies), pods of garlic slices of ginger, slivered onions and freshly shredded coconut.

I even added a pinch of turmeric and red chilli powder for extra love!

Cool the ingredients and then grind them to a smooth paste.

Start by heating some oil, and adding the pieces of chicken. Brown well and add the spice paste.

Cook on low-medium heat till you see oil surfacing. I even covered my Indian wok and slow cooked for about 30 minutes on low-medium to get the spice cooked with the chicken.

There! See that slick oil on top? That’s the look Mahua, my muse wants in her Kolhapuri Chicken.

Serve Mahua’s Kolhapuri Murgi with chapatis, paratha or plain white rice. Thank you, Mahua. You shall be remembered at dinner time tonight.

Hamaree Rasoi, dont be afraid of the red chilies. The onions and coconut are naturally sweet ingredients. So the "fire" gets "doused". :-)
