Ingredients

Directions

Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the cinnamon, cardamom pods, and cloves, and fry for 20 to 30 seconds, or until the spices are fragrant. Add the onion, and fry for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown. 

Add the curry leaves, chiles, ginger, and garlic, and reduce the heat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the garlic has softened. Add the chicken pieces, and stir fry for 3 to 4 minutes. Season the chicken, with salt, and freshly ground black pepper. 

Add the garam masala and enough boiling water to reach halfway up the chicken pieces. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover the pan with a lid, reduce the heat to a low heat and simmer the mixture for 10 to 12 minutes. 

Remove the lid from the pan, turn the heat up to a high heat, and boil off any excess liquid, stirring continuously. 

Once the liquid has almost completely boiled away, add the grated coconut and the lemon juice, and stir well. Cover the pan again and continue to cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the chicken pieces are tender, and completely cooked through. 

Just before serving, stir in the chopped cilantro.

Cook's Note

*Can be found at specialty Asian markets. Use drumsticks in this recipe to make ideal outdoor party food - the bones will also add maximum flavour to the dish.
