(Serves at least 4)

This is one of the easiest recipes to put together. You will notice that even though this is cooked in a pressure cooker this recipe does not use any water. That’s right! Onions release enough water for the chicken to cook. You must however use sufficient oil and cook over medium heat. The pressure cooking will melt the onions, so no chopping needed. Do not add any chilli powder. The whole dry red chillies add an unexpected kick to this dish.


  • Chicken: 800 grams on the bones
  • Red onions: 500 grams, halved
  • Garlic: 8-10 cloves
  • Whole dry red chillies: 10-12
  • Green Cardamoms: 8-10
  • Bay leaves: 2
  • Salt: to taste
  • Oil: 6 tablespoons

Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add green cardamoms, red chillies, garlic, bay leaves and onions and sauté for two minutes. Add the chicken pieces and salt. Sauté for five to six minutes. Cover with the lid and cook till three whistles are given out. Let the steam release completely before opening the pressure cooker. Serve with roti.
