Chicken Kheema

Chicken Kheema or rather aloo mattar kheema. I adapted Vahrehvah Sanjay's kheema recipe and modified according to my taste.

Ground Chicken - 1 lb (or) 1/2 kg
onion - 1 medium (chopped)
Potato - 1 small (cubed)
Tomato - 1 small
Green Peas - 1/2 cup
Green Chili -2  (chopped)
Cloves - 1
Bay Leaf - 1
Cardamom- 1
Cinnamon -1
cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
Fennel Seeds Powder - 1 tsp
garam masala - 1 tsp
Curd - 1 cup

1.Heat oil in a kadai and add the clove, cinnamon, cardamom and bay leaf.Then add some cumin seeds.
2.When they splutter add the chopped onions.When they become little brown add the ginger garlic paste.
3.when the raw smell goes off add turmeric powder and saute.Then add the chopped green chillis
4.Add the chicken and mix it well. Break the lumps that form with the spatula. Dont add water.The chicken will cook in the water it oozes.
5.Add chilli powder,coriander powder, garam masala, fennel powder, salt and mix well. Then add the tomatoes and curd. Again mix well. Add the green peas and the potatoes.
6.Allow it to cook for 15-20 min covering the kadai with a lid.
7.Add Coriander leaves and mix well and allow it to cook for further 5 min.

Alternatively we can cook green peas and potaoes with salt seperately and add after the chicken is 3/4 cooked.
