Marinate the chicken in all the spices mentioned in the ingredient list for 30 minutes.
Put a kadhai on flame and add oil. Once the oil is hot, add cinnamon and cardamom and finely chopped onions. Sauté them till they are soft and translucent. Add salt, ginger paste, garlic paste and tomato puree.
Grind together the coconut paste using the ingredients mentioned in the paste list while the tomato puree cooks.
Add red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder to the tomato gravy and mix it. Then, add the coconut paste to the gravy and mix evenly. Now add water to create a gravy-like consistency. Keep this aside.
Take a pan and fry the marinated chicken in it. Once the chicken is fried, put it in the gravy and let it cook slowly.
Whisk one egg with salt and make two thin omelettes in a pan. Cut thin strips of the omelette and roll the strips.
Add cream and coriander to the chicken gravy, mix well. Garnish the chicken with the rolled egg strips by placing them in between chicken pieces. Chicken lapeta is ready!
