1 lb skinned chicken thighs, each cut into 2 pieces
tsp. ground turmeric
1 tsps. salt
3" fresh ginger, peeled & finely chopped
4-5 tbsps. vegetable oil
1-2 dried chilies, broken into 2or 3 pieces
tsp. brown mustard seeds
tsp. urad dal
tsp. fennel seeds
2 small sticks cinnamon
5-6 garlic cloves, peeled & finely chopped
1 onion, peeled & sliced in fine rings
2 medium tomatoes, peeled and chopped
tsp. cayenne pepper
lots of freshly ground black pepper
coriander to garnish

Put the chicken pieces into a bowl and add turmeric and 1 tsp. salt.

Chop the ginger finely and put into a blender along with about 2 tbsps. water. Blend to a paste. Squeeze the juice through a strainer over the chicken, discarding the pulp. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least four hours but preferably overnight.

Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat. When hot add the chilies, mustard seeds, urad dal, fennel and cinnamon. Stir for a few seconds until the mustard seeds pop.

Add the garlic and stir, then add the onion and stir and saute` until soft and just starting to brown. Add the tomatoes and fry for 2-3 minutes.

Add the chicken and its marinade, cayenne pepper and the remaining salt. Stir and fry on high heat for about 6 minutes until brown. Cover, turn heat to low and cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the cover and sprinkle in the black pepper. If there is any liquid left turn up the heat and dry off before serving. Sprinkle with freshly chopped coriander.
