Oven Roasted braised Curried Chicken

Oven roasted curried chicken is a dish which I made last week for dinner. First I thought of making my simple chicken curry, but then I dumped all the powders and sauces in the cooker, cooked till done and then baked, which turned out to be a hit in my house. This is a simple dish which can be prepared within less time. The process of cooking, baking and broiling look hectic, but once you start cooking, it will be in a flow.

Assemble all the ingredients in the pressure cooker and then bake them to perfection. A perfect curried dish which can be had along with rotis/ chapatis/ pulav. This will be a hit among the guests in any party. Adjust the spice level accordingly and kids will also love to eat this.

Slow braising of this dish yields to a soft, moist, tender chicken pieces to enjoy. First, the chicken pieces are cooked on high heat and then slowly oven roasted for some time till tender.
I like to have this with plenty of brown basmati rice to soak up the flavorful sauce.
