Doi Mangsho (Yogurt Chicken)

When families with kids come visiting you, it's always a challenge to cook something which satisfies both the generations. After a little thought process and research, I squared in on this recipe for yogurt chicken which is not just easy to make but makes the taste buds happy as well!

500-600 gms chicken (I used boneless)
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 onion roughly chopped
1/2 inch ginger chopped
6-7 pods garlic chopped
6-7 pieces cashew
2 each whole garam masala (cloves, cinnamon, cardamom) 
2+1 tbsp mustard oil
Salt as per taste

Clean and cut the chicken into small pieces. In a bowl, add the yogurt, red chilli powder, and salt and prepare the marinade. Add the chicken pieces to this marinade and keep it aside for 20-30 minutes. In a kadhai (wok), add 2 tbsp oil and splutter the whole garam masala. To this, add the marinated chicken and give a stir on high for 2-3 minutes. Simmer the gas and cook the chicken covered while stirring occasionally. In a separate kadhai, heat the remaining oil and add the onion, ginger, and garlic and fry till golden brown in color. Add the cashew and fry for few more minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool. In a blender, add the onion fry and make a coarse paste. Add this onion cashew paste to the chicken and mix everything well. Taste for salt and add if required. You can also add a little sugar, if you like. Let it remain on low heat for 5-6 minutes till the gravy thickens. Remove from heat and serve hot with plain rice/roti.
