There are many types of Chicken curry’s made in India. Today I am sharing a very simple yet very tasty Chicken curry recipe.
Ingredients: 1/2 kg Chicken 3 Medium sized Onion sliced 2 Medium sized Tomatoes sliced 1 Tablespoon Dry Grated Coconut 1 inch Ginger 8 to 10 Garlic cloves Handful of Fresh Coriander leaves 2 to 3 teaspoon Red chilli powder 2 Teaspoon Garam Masala or Chicken Curry Masala 1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder 2 Teaspoon Ginger Garlic Paste (For msrination) 2 Tablespoon Oil Salt to taste
Method: Firstly wash the chicken properly and marinate the same with Ginger Garlic Paste, Turmeric Powder and 1 teaspoon of Red chilli Powder. Keep it for atleast half an hour.
In a pan take 1 tablespoon of oil, heat the oil and add sliced onions and fry for couple of minutes. Then add Dry coconut, Tomatoes sliced, Ginger and Garlic cloves and fry till the onions turn golden brown and tomatoes are soft. Let this cool and grind it with Handful of Coriander leaves to a fine paste.
In a pressure cooker heat 1 tablespoon of oil. To this add the above grinded masala (don’t add the water you use to clean the masala yet) and fry it. Meanwhile add Red chilli powder and Garam or Chicken Masala and fry nicely till the beautiful aroma spreads. Then add the marinated chicken and the masala water from the grinder bowl and some more water as needed to get the consistency of the curry. Lastly add Salt to taste and give a good mix cover the lid of the Pressure cook for 2 whistles. The curry is ready to serve.
Note: I always rub Curd to the washed chicken and keep it aside for 10 to 15 minutes before marinating. It removes all the raw smell of the chicken. Alternatively you can use lemon juice.
