Chicken Cheese Handi

After today you'll not only know me as a man who is handsome and sexy but also someone who taught you how to make Chicken Cheese Handi.

There are 2 phases of Chicken Cheese Handi.

1. Preparing the base gravy.

2. Cooking the chicken in the base curry.

Ingredients for Base Curry:

1 big onion cut into four pieces

1 big tomato cut into four pieces

4 tablespoon yogurt

3 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon red chili powder

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Add 1 cup water in a pan along sliced onion and tomato. 

Add the yogurt and spices. 

Add the oil as well and boil it on high heat until the water is almost dried.

Set this base gravy aside. Let it cool down and then grind it.

Today was a bad day.

First a stray cat took away like 500 grams of my boneless chicken.

Then there was no gas pressure.

Then I broke a nice bowl in which I used to present food. 

Not my day at all.

Now comes the 2nd phase for which you need

Ingredients for Chicken Curry:

1 kilogram boneless chicken cubes

3 bullet green chilies sliced from the middle

1 tomato finely chopped

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dry roasted crushed cumin

1/2 teaspoon garam masala

4 tablespoon cream

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon chili sauce

250 grams of grated cheese of your choice

1 tablespoon garlic paste

1 tablespoon butter

1/4 cup oil 

Handful of chopped coriander which is totally optional

Heat oil in a pan and add garlic paste. Stir it for 10 seconds and add the chopped tomatoes.

Add the base gravy and boil the mixture until the oil floats. Then add salt, garam masala, cumin, soy and chili sauce.

Mix it well and after cooking for 2 minutes add the chicken and bring the heat to medium from high.

If you want to cook the chicken fast then you can lower the heat and put a lid on it. 4 minutes with the lid will do.

Remove the lid and add butter, cream, cheese chili and coriander. Mix I well.

Bring the heat on low flame and cover cook it for exact 5 minutes.

Remove the lid and if the oil is floating above then your Chicken Cheese Handi is ready. Time to dish out.
