I have tried different types of curried chicken dish, but found it is more delightful than others. Ginger based curry with lots of flavour is truly toothsome. Marinade the chicken as long as possible, the taste is to die for. Topping with butter makes it more appetizing. A perfect dish to serve in any party or get together......really awesome!!!
1 lb / 450 gm boneless Chicken
1 1/2 tbsp ginger paste
2 tbsp garlic paste
2 tbsp dry ginger powder
2 medium sized onions (chopped)
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp garam masala powder (cinnamon, cardamom and cloves)
2 tbsp mint leaves (chopped)
2 tbsp coriander leaves (chopped)
3 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt (according to taste)

Cut the chicken into cubes. Marinate chicken with ginger and garlic paste. Keep aside for an hour.
Heat oil in a pan. Add onions and fry till golden brown.

Now add marinated chicken into it, saute for 10-12 minues.

Then add lemon juice, dry ginger powder, garam masala, red chilli powder and salt in it. Saute for 2 minutes. Add half cup of warm water in it. Let it cook for another 5 minutes.

After that add black pepper powder and butter. Stir for another 1 minute.

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves. Serve this truly delectable chicken dish with rumali rotis or naan or parathas accompaning with green salad.
