In my village this dish was eaten in the rainy season when it was damp and wet everywhere(In those days it used to rain for days at a time, unlike the brief showers in today's fastfood world). After the chicken is killed and the feathers and entrails removed, the carcass is lightly coated with turmeric paste and then gently roasted on an open fire made of dry palm leaves. When the skin seems sufficiently withered, the carcass is removed from the fire and is cut into bite sized pieces, washed and prepared for the curry.

Cooking procedure:
Grind into a paste: cloves, almonds, coriander seeds, Cumin, cardamom, cinnamon and grated fresh coconut until soft and keep aside.

Cut chicken into a little larger than bite sized pieces.

Heat oil in a wide, non-stick skillet and fry onions, garlic and ginger pastes until onions are deep brown. Now add chicken, chili powder, turmeric, salt and curry leaves. Fry until chicken pieces are lightly browned. Now add yoghurt, tomatoes, coriander leaves and mix well. Cover and cook on high heat until water content has reduced coinsiderably (gravy looks thick and almost sticks to the chicken pieces) and then add the ground paste and 2 cup of water. Cover and cook on low heat for 25 minutes or until the gravy looks thick.
Any additional information:
Serve hot.

Goes very well with plain white rice or dosa.
