Chicken Curry

A recipe for those days when you want to cook chicken but don't have the time for something elaborate. A recipe passed on to me by my husband from his bachelor days. It is a simple and quick recipe and tastes really good with both rice and roti. You can also try it with bread.

  • 500 g chicken
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1" cinnamon
  • 4 cloves
  • 4 large onions
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 200 g curd
  • 2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
  • Grind 2 onions, cut the other two into thin slices and finely chop the tomatoes
  • Marinade the chicken with curd, ground onion paste, 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste, chilli powder, turmeric powder, 1 tbsp oil and salt and keep aside for half an hour
  • Heat the remaining oil in a kadhai, add the bay leaves, cinnamon and cloves
  • Then add the sliced onion and fry till it is golden brown. Keep aside one third of the fried onion for garnishing
  • Add just the marinaded chicken pieces to the fried onions and continue to fry for 5 minutes
  • Then reduce heat, add the left over marinade to the kadhai, cover and cook till the chicken pieces are almost done
  • Add the finely chopped tomatoes and cook till the chicken pieces are done
  • Garnish with the fried onions and serve
