How to make the Chicken Varuval
Wash and drain the chicken pieces.
Dry roast all the spices listed under spice powder and cool. Then grind to a smooth powder. Keep it aside.
In a kadai, heat oil. Add onions, garlic and ginger. Saute till the colour changes.
Then add the drained chicken, saute well on high. Then add salt and turmeric powder. Let it cook on high for the moisture to evaporate.
Once the chicken is almost dry, add the ground spice powder all over the chicken pieces and simmer. Combine everything well and cook in sim for 15 - 20 mins.
Remove lid and check if the chicken is cooked. Once again cook on high till the masala is well coated to the chicken.
