Malvani is the Cuisine of the Konkan region of Maharashtra and Goa. The dishes are usually spicy, tangy and coconut based. The 'Konkanastha Brahmin' style of food is quite bland yet very tasty and vegetarian too.
I had jotted down this recipe long back from Aditya Bal's TV show "Chakhle India".
Malvani Masala ... 4-5 tbsps.( see recipe - HERE )
Chicken ......... 1/2 kg
Onions..... 3 chopped (about 1 and half cups)
Grind to paste :
Fresh grated coconut ... 1/2 cup
Garlic................... 8-10 cloves
Ginger ................ 1 inch piece
Green chillies ..... 1-2 ( add only if you like it very hot. I skipped them as the Malvani masala is already spicy)
Coriander leaves .... to garnish.
1. Heat oil in a pan add the chopped onions. Fry until brown.
2. Add the wet masala ( ground paste of fresh coconut, ginger,garlic)
3. Saute for a minute and add the dry Malvani masala and mix.
4. Now add the chicken pieces ( chicken with bones tastes better in this preparation). Add salt and saute. Add sufficient water (depending on the consistency you want) and simmer it to cook.
Garnish coriander leaves and serve.
I made little gravy because I prefer it with rice. If you want to serve with rotis you can make it dry.
Pin for later

How are you? I feel good reading your note at my blog. I have heard so much about Malwani chicken , but never had a chance to cook or eat even! With your detailed recipe , I am tempted to cook it. Next week I am going back to Algeria :-(.
Regarding Sailana Garam masala, it has all kind of spices ground together. If I get time I will send it to you or give in my blog.
