Chicken curry in a jiffy

I make this chicken curry when I am in a hurry. Much simpler than how I usually I make.  Throw everything into the pressure cooker and cook it down.  Having said that, some of the frying I take time to do does help to enhance and flavor and nobody can really say the difference. Almost!



Ingredients:

Chicken- 2lbs
Onions (finely chopped)-2
Ginger paste- 1 1/2 Tbsp
Garlic Paste- 1 1/2 Tbsp
Chicken masala (I used Eastern)- 2 Tbsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt
Garam Masala- 1 tsp
Red Chilli powder- 1 Tbsp
Coriander powder- 2 Tbsp
Tomato puree- 3 tsp
Curry leaves- 2 Sprig

Method:

1.Clean and marinate the chicken in chicken masala ,turmeric powder and salt.
2.Deep fry the onions in oil and keep aside.
3.Heat a tbsp of oil in a pressure cooker, saute the ginger and galic paste till the raw smell leaves.
4.Add all the spice powders into it and saute on low heat.
5.Throw in the fried onions and tomato puree and mix well.
6.Add the marinated chicken and curry leaves and saute for 3-4 minutes on low heat.
7.Add enough water to cook the chicken (I added 1 1/2 cup water) ,cover and cook till 2 whistles.
8.Open and mix well once all the pressure is released.Serve with ghee rice/fried rice/roti etc.
