  • First clean and marinate the chicken with the given ingredients and keep aside.
  • Then crush ginger-garlic-green chili using pestle and mortar or pulse it in a mixer.
  • And then heat a pan and dry roast coriander seeds, clove, cinnamon, cardamom, jeera and transfer to a mixer jar and blend to a fine powder and keep ready.
  • To the same heated pan add poppy seeds roast for few seconds then remove from the pan and grind it along with coconut to a fine paste and keep aside.
  • Now heat oil in a wide kadai or pan, when it is hot add onion, green chili and curry leaves and saute onion till it turns golden brown.
  • Then add crushed ginger-chilli and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  • After that chopped tomato and saute till it turns soft and mushy.
  • And then add marinated chicken, chili powder, turmeric powder and saute for 3-4 minutes.
  • Then add 1/2 cup water and bring it to boil, once it starts boiling add the roasted and ground masala powder, stir well and boil for 2 minutes.
  • And now add the ground coconut-poppy seeds paste, enough salt and add water to desired consistency and cook till oil floats on top or pressure cook for 1-2 whistles.
  • Once done, finally add some finely chopped cilantro and switch off the stove.
  • That's it...Spicy Andhra Style Chicken Curry ready. Serve hot with rice or rotis or parotta.
Adjust chili powder and green chili to your spice level.
Adding coconut and poppy seeds makes the curry rich, flavorful and gives your more quantity and taste.
But if you don't like poppy seeds, skip it and also you can replace coconut with coconut milk.
Make this curry little spicy, because the addition of poppy seeds and coconut will suppress the spice level.
I skipped cardamom with the masala powder , instead added 1 whole cardamom along with the onions and sauteed.
