Cut chicken into 2 inch pieces including bones (Country fouls are the best than broiler chicken). Wash and drain water. Put it into the cooker and keep aside. Take 1 table-spoon Oil in a deep-frying pan, add Chopped big onions and stir well.  When it turns slightly golden and oil shows up add coriander powder, stir continuously for 2 minutes then add chilli powder, turmeric powder, curry leaves and green chilly, mix nicely for 1 minute. Add 1 table-spoon water and mix it, then add big cumin seeds, Ginger, Garlic, Cinnamon, Cardamom seeds and Cloves.  Stir well till the masala stops sticking to the pan and oil begins to show up. Remove from fire and add it to the chicken.  Pour 2 cups of water, mix well with the chicken pieces and keep on fire for 2 or 3 whistles depends on the age of  the chicken.  If very old country foul 3 whistles will be needed.  For broiler chicken only 1 whistle is enough.  When ready remove from fire and once the cooker cools a little open it and see if the pieces are cooked, if you need it to be very soft cook for few more minutes without the lid.  Regulate the quantity of the gravy. Thick gravy tastes better.
