Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 5-6
  • 750 gms chicken
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 small cinnamon stick
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 green cardamoms
  • 3 medium sized sliced onions
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • salt - to taste
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 4 medium sized tomatoes made into puree
  • 2 tbsp slightly roasted coconut
  • 2-3 green chillies
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves
  • ½ garam masala powder
  • ½ tsp coriander seeds powder
  • ½ tsp kali mirch powder(black pepper powder)
  • 1 tsp chicken masala powder(optional)
For The Green Paste
  1. Firstly, in a blender add slightly roasted coconut pieces, green chillies, coriander and blend well, add water and make a fine paste and keep it aside for further use.
Steps To Cook Chicken Curry:
  1. Take a cooking vessel, add oil and heat it.
  2. Add whole spices such as cinnamon stick, cardamoms and cloves.
  3. Add sliced onions into it and cook for few minutes till they get soft or translucent.
  4. Add ginger garlic paste and saute for few minutes.
  5. Add chicken and roast it well until a change in color appears.
  6. Add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder into it, mix and cook well.
  7. Add tomato puree into it, mix and cook well for few minutes until oil leaves the sides.
  8. Add the blended paste of coconut, green chillies and coriander leaves.
  9. Mix the whole mixture well and cook until masala is cooked well and oil leaves the sides.
  10. If the gravy is thick add little water as required.
  11. Add spices such as garam masala powder, kali mirch powder, coriander seeds powder, chicken masala powder and mix.
  12. Cook the chicken until it gets tender or cook for about 15-20 minutes by covering the lid on medium flame.
  13. Garnish the curry with coriander leaves and serve hot with pulao or plain rice.
1.Here I have used desiccated coconut but freshly grated coconut too can be used instead of dry coconut.
2.If one does not prefer using coconut then just add paste of green chillies and coriander leaves.
3.Here I have used slow cooking method rather than making it in the pressure cooker and slow cooked method gives the best taste.
4.One can add additional spices such as bay leaf into the curry.
5.To make the tomato puree, blend the tomatoes directly in a blender or another method is boil the tomatoes, peel the skin and then make the puree, but in this recipe I have made the puree of the tomatoes directly and cooked the puree well enough.

    There’s nothing quite like a good chicken curry on a cold winter’s day. Love all the ingredients in this dish. I make curries quite often, but am not so sure of the chicken masala powder? Perhaps it is just another Indian spice. It looks delicious.

      You will love this chicken curry …and chicken masala powder is totally optional…you can skip that ingredient and make it…
