This is a recipe that I got from my friend's mother when I was pregnant with my first child, and craving chicken curry. This is an authentic Desi recipe. Serve with basmati rice or enjoy with bread.
- 1 roasting chicken (Washed, Cut up into 16 pieces, Remove Skin and excess fat.)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons ginger-garlic paste
- 1 small cinnamon stick (I usually use a half of one)
- 4 cloves
- 5 whole cardamom pods
- 1⁄4 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)
- 3 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 dash turmeric, for color
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1⁄2 cup plain yogurt
- 1⁄2 cup fried onions (I like to use the packaged kind)
- Make the Curry by putting all the Curry ingredients in the blender and blending them until they make a smooth sauce. Reserve til needed.
- Heat the oil in a 5 quart pot.
- Toss the chicken, the ginger/garlic paste, and the spices in the pot for about 4-5 minutes.
- Pour the Curry on top of the chicken.
- Fill the Blender with 1/2 cup water and stir around to catch any sauce that didn't come out. Then pour the water over the chicken.
- Bring the Curry to a boil.
- Cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes or until chicken pieces start to seperate from bones.
- Serve with yogurt and either basmati rice or bread.
- Enjoy :).
Not to be mean, but yucko! I followed the recip exactly and when it was done all I could taste was salt. Then I noticed that there isn't even any actual curry in the recipe! It took almost everything in my spice rack plus a can of tomatoes to make it edible, but it still wasn't good. If you're looking for a nice Indian curry, this is not the way to go.
Excellent dish! Easy to make and sooo good. It's a keeper in our house :)
YYYYYUUUUMMMMYYYY!!!!!This is a MUST try recipe. It's now a recipe that I've made about 4 times in the past 1 1/2 month. DH, kids, and even my sister (who is really picky) loved this dish! The combo of spices is excellent. Thanks bundura :)
