A tasty Northern Indian Curry - not too hot, and easy to prepare--extra chili or hot sambal can be added by the individual--if they are hot heads!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place onion, ginger, crushed garlic and fresh coriander in blender. Blend as smooth as possible adding a small amount of water if necessary.
  2. Heat oil in large pan and fry the blended mixture on low heat for 2-3 minutes. Add turmeric, Garam Masala, salt and chili, fry for a further minute.
  3. Stir in yoghurt and tomato; simmer for 5 minutes. Add chicken, turning to coat. Simmer gently for 40 minutes. Thicken if necessary.
  4. Serve with rice, and accompaniments.

I only had chicken breast meat to use, but it worked fine (kept a close eye so the chicken didn't overcook). We LOVED the flavor of this curry and will be making this recipe regularly. Thank you, Joyful, for a great recipe.

This was fantastic! I altered the recipe slightly, only due to what I had available. I only had about 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt (bad planning on my part) so I used that plus a few tablespoons of heavy cream. Instead of adding 2 tomatoes, I used a can of diced tomatoes (including the juice). I lost a little bit of the curry color from this, but the flavor was awesome! I served this with rice and a big chunk of rustic bread.
