This is a recipe taken from Lekshmi Nair's magic oven. As promised, Rose here is your recipe. Anybody wanting some specific recipe from Lekshmi Nair's magic oven can contact me and if I have it, I shall surely post it here.


  1. 1 medium chicken (cut into small pieces)
  2. 1/4 cup coconut oil ( sunflower oil can be used)
  3. 250 gms small onions (sliced small)
  4. 15 cloves garlic (sliced small)
  5. 2 pieces ginger (sliced small)
  6. 6 green chillies (sliced lengthwise from the middle into two)
  7. 2 tblsp. coriander powder
  8. 2 tblsp. chilli powder
  9. 3/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  10. 1 tblsp. garam masala
  11. 1 cup coconut milk (1st milk) and 2 cups (2nd milk taken from one coconut)
  12. 1/2 tsp. fried and ground cumin

  • Saute the ginger and garlic slices in hot oil.
  • Put in this sliced onions and green chillies and saute until the onions are lightly browned.
  • Add turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder and saute until it takes out the raw smell.
  • Add chicken pieces to this masala, mix and saute further.
  • Add garam masala, ground cumin and salt and saute further.
  • When the masala has mixed with the chicken properly and the oil starts oozing out add the 2 cups of coconut second milk. ( I normally use coconut milk in tins with added water)
  • Let the chicken cook in this coconut milk. When the gravy starts thickening add coconut 1st milk and mix.
  • Add some curry leaves and cover the vessel. Switch off the stove.
