Chettinad Chicken, I have made this so many time, it is a so tasty dish, different from the one which you get in restaurants...

Add salt, turmeric powder and lemon juice to chicken and mix well. Let it marinate for 15 to 20 mins.

Now Make the chettinad masala. Dry roast all the spices except coconut in a kadai till it turns golden. once it turn golden add in coconut and roast till the coconut turns light golden. Remove them to a mixer and grind them to a smooth paste.

Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add in onions and saute till it turns soft.

Add in curry leaves and ginger garlic paste. Saute for a min.

Add in marinated chicken and mix well. Add in cubed tomatoes and mix well. Cover the cooker and cook it for 2 whistle, simmer for 10 mins. Switch off the heat and let them steam go all by itself.
