Andhra Style Chili Chicken

Mid week visit to my in-laws and yet another demand of Ratish is Andhra Style Chili Chicken, he simply loves Andhra cuisine. If you take him to Nagarjuna (one of the authentic Andhra style restaurants in Bangalore) to explore the meals, then he wouldn't leave without doing some justice, as well as tire the waiters till they beg you to leave - simply because they'd be worn out of serving Ratish ample amount of hot rice, ghee and gun powder (chutney powder).....

Chicken - 1kg, skinless cut into medium pieces
Green Chilies - 10-12
Onion - 2 finely chopped
Curry leaves - two sprigs
Spice powder - 2 cloves, 1 stick of cinnamon, 1/4tsp of jeera all ground to a dry powder
Ginger garlic paste - 1tbs
Button Onions - 1/4cup
Lemon juice - 2tbs
Pepper powder - 1tsp
Salt to taste

Pat dry the chicken and keep aside. Wet grind the green chillies, ginger garlic paste, button onions to a coarse paste. Into a pan, sauté the onions till brown, also add half the curry leaves and sauté till crisp. Then add the chicken and sauté the chicken for about 2-3minutes. Tip in the chilly paste and sauté till the chicken becomes white. Cover and cook the chicken till almost done, and the liquid has turned into a semi gravy. Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper, and mix well. Add the remaining curry leaves, continue to fry the chicken for a couple of more minutes and serve hot with rice.

Tip:If required add less than a quarter cup of warm water for more gravy (which is how we like it)
