Chicken Salna | சிக்கன் சால்னா

Chicken Salna is a famous South-Indian non-vegetarian gravy recipe that is usually served with Parotta. It is the best and heavenly combination ever. But you can also serve with Parotta, Chapathi, Idiyappam, Idli, dosa and even Pulao varieties. 

Ingredients :-
------------------
 Chicken with bones*     1 kg  
 Mint leaves    few  
 Curry leaves    few 
 Cinnamon    1" stick  
 Oil    1 tbsp  
 Salt to taste
To Roast and grind:-
 Cloves    2  
 Cumin     1 tsp  
 Fennel    1 tsp  
 Pepper corns    2 tsp  
 Poppy seeds    1 tsp 
 Coriander seeds    1 tbsp
 Red chillies    7 
 Oil     1 tsp
 Onions (roughly chopped)   1 
 Tomatoes (roughly chopped)    2
 Ginger garlic paste    1 tsp
 Grated coconut    ¾ cup  
 Salt  to taste

Method :-
-------------
1). Heat oil in a pan and add cumin, cloves, poppy seeds, fennel seeds, pepper corns, and saute for a minute. Then add roughly chopped onions and saute till translucent. Add tomatoes and saute till they become soft, switch off. Let it cool and grind it with grated coconut to a fine paste. Keep aside. 
2). Clean, wash and cut the chicken in to medium size pieces. Marinate the chicken with turmeric powder and little salt, keep aside. In a pressure cooker, add cinnamon sticks and curry leaves, saute till aromatic. Then add the chicken pieces and saute till the color of the chicken changes.
3). Then add the grounded masala along with a cup of water. Mix well so that the chicken gets well coated in the masala. Close and cook for a whistle for two till the chicken is fully cooked. Once the pressure releases, open and mix well. Sprinkle mint leaves and cook in medium for 5 minutes, switch off.
Serve hot with Chapathi or Parotta. Enjoy !

Notes :-
----------
# Chicken can be replaced with Mutton for Mutton Salna. 
# The consistency of this Salna should be thin and not thick like gravy.
#* Chicken with bones adds more taste to the salna than boneless. Bones gives flavor to the gravy.
