How to make the recipe
To make the gongura chicken curry, a smooth paste made of poppy seeds or cashews is needed. Either dry roast the poppy seeds or sun dry them until crunchy. Powder them in a blender first and then add little water and make a paste. If you do not own a powerful blender, then you can use cashews instead of poppy seeds. Make a smooth paste with little water and set aside. This helps to get a delicious gravy.
Clean the leaves and wash them in lot of water several times. Drain off aside. Saute the leaves in a tsp of oil along with green chilies. Cool and blend coarsely or smooth paste to suit your taste. You can blend it in the same jar used for poppy seeds.
Marinate chicken with ingredients mentioned under marination. Set this aside.
