This Pentagon Chicken is from kairali sisters...By trying out this i understood one thing that they love spicy food...I had reduced spices.But still it was spicy for me...But yummy one.......You can check their recipe here.Me and my hubby realy enjoyed this....

Chicken -800grm

For Marination
Red chilly powder 1 1/2 tbsp
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Turmeric ¼ tsp
Ground Pepper 3/4 tsp
Lemon juice 1 tsp
Egg 1 no
Curd 2 tsp
Salt as needed

For the gravy
Onions 2 nos, sliced
Green chilly 3 nos, chopped
Cashew 7-8 nos
Ginger garlic paste 1tsp
Red chilly powder 1 tsp
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Oil 3-4 tsp
Salt as needed

Preparing the marination
1.In a bowl, make a marinade of all the above ingredients, add the chicken pieces, mix well and marinate for 1 hour at room temperature.
1.In a deep bottomed wok, add the entire oil and when hot enough layer the chicken pieces evenly and close with a lid. Let the chicken gets cooked and fetch a golden brown color. Turn the chicken in between for an even browning on all sides. Drain the fried chicken and set aside.
2.At medium to high heat, in the same oil, add the onions and sauté till golden brown.

3.Next add in the green chillies, ginger garlic paste and sauté till raw smell goes. Add the cashew nuts and sauté for a few more minutes. Add the red chilly powder, salt and garam masala. Mix well with onions and add the tomato. Cook for 2 more minutes and add the chicken pieces, mix well to combine. Close the wok with a lid and allow the chicken to absorb the gravy in a medium flame for about 10 -15 mnts. Open and give a final mix. Serve hot with fried rice, chappathi…I had it with chappathi.
