Chicken Curry - Maharashtrians style

This is a typical Marathi style chicken curry spicy and yummy. I have added some raw cashews (kachhe kaju) which were sent specially from my native place. We enjoyed the curry with Appams. The chicken was too tasty as it was made with gaaavthi kombdi.Guys here goes the recipe.

Chicken - 1 kg cut in medium to small sized pieces
ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tbs
onions - 1 large sized
tomatoes - 1 medium sized
crushed garlic - 6 to 7 cloves
red chilli powder - 2  to 3 tsp
turmeric - 1 tsp
garam masala - 2 tsp
goda masala - 3 tbs
salt - to taste

Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tbs
red chilli powder - 1 tsp
turmeric - 1/4 tsp
garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
salt - little

Marinate chicken with all the ingredients under marination and keep in refrigerator for 30 min minimum.
Heat oil in a skillet add the crushed garlic along with onions as the onions start tuning pink add the ginger garlic paste and cook until raw smell goes away. Add the red chilli powder, turmeric and garam masala powder sprinkle very little water now add the goda masala and cook until oil leaves the corners. Throw tomato and cook until mushy.
Add the chicken and stir fry for 2  to 3 minutes add salt and mix it properly. Add little water and cover it a lid ( Fill in little water in the lid as well ). After approximately 8 minutes check if the chicken is well cooked if not then cover and cook for some more time. If you feel that the water is more then increase the flame and let the chicken cook without covering. This helps in drying the gravy but be careful of overcooking.
Enjoy with steamed rice, roti, paratha. We enjoyed with Appams.
