My Favourite Chicken Curry

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

This is a winner with my family. I like to serve this with Onion Pilau #108305. I also like to throw in a handful of red lentils towards the end whilst it is simmering. Pumpkin and baby spinch chucked in towards the end is nice also.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove skin from chicken pieces, discard skin.
  2. Toss chicken in flour, shake off excess.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large pan, cook chicken, in batches until browned. Drain on absorbent paper.
  4. Heat remaining oil in pan, cook onion, garlic, chilli, cumin and curry powder until fragrant.
  5. Return chicken to pan with the undrained tomatoes, paste, sugar and stock.
  6. Bring to the boil, simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until chicken is tender.

A very nice curry. I followed the recipe -- even added the pumpkin and the lentils. It gave the kitchen a beautiful perfume. Might not add the sugar in future, but that is a personal preference. Made and enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.

I made this as a take-home meal for my curry-loving DS, I use chicken breasts and increased the curry and fresh garlic, the sauce was a bit on the thin side, so I might only use one can crushed tomatoes and reduce the chicken broth slightly next time I make it, great flavor though, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
