Spicy chicken curry

I make this dish for Nitin sometimes. He loves to eat this with fulka or plain rice. This recipe is basically my Mom's recipe.

1 lb chicken cut in medium sized pieces
1 small onion
5-6 garlic cloves
1/2 inch ginger
2-3 green chillies
salt to taste
chilli powder to taste
1 tbsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp oil

For tampering:
2 tbsp clarified butter
1 big onion chopped
1 leaf tejpatta
1 3-4 inch piece of dalchini (cinnamon stick)
1 big cardamom
1 tsp cumin seeds

Grind a small onion, ginger, green chillies and garlic. In a pressure cooker, put oil the grinded mixture,  turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and red chili powder. Add chicken and 1/4th cup water. Pressure cook until one whistle comes at high flame. Now leave the pressure cooker at sim flame for 10 minutes. In a big pan, add clarified butter. When it is hot add cumin seeds, cardamom, tejpatta and dalchini. Now fry onions well. Transfer the mixture of pressure cooker in this and cook for another 5 minutes. The curry is ready.
