Easter Chicken Curry

Hows the Easter preps going on? Waiting to break your lent & gorge on all the meat you could lay your eyes on, eh ;) Here is an Easter special chicken recipe. Now if you ask me, why it’s called Easter chicken, I’m clueless. I got this recipe from my aunt, Tesschechy, during my last vacation. I was hunting for new recipes in her recipe diaries (btw, she has around 10-15 of such diaries) I caught sight of this one. At first glance, I thought it’s a bit complex & lengthy one, so decided not to cut & paste. But she convinced me that this is a must try recipe & she even made it for me to prove her point. She proved her point pretty well!

This recipe is something you wont cook on a daily basis. It’s a rich curry & the cooking time is a bit longer than the usual curries. So I guess it’s called Easter chicken, because it’s usually made on special occasions & whoever came up with the original recipe, made it on a Easter day :) Now, does that make any sense? People often say that my logical reasoning is weird, but I guess it works for me ;)

Btw, I’m not very happy with this picture. I think I wasnt able to capture it well. Hey, did I tell you? We moved to a new apartment & here I’m yet to find a perfect place for my photo shoot. Also “somebody” decided to play around with my camera, so I ended up with all different settings. Now, I just dont know how to go back to the original settings. Too many things to figure out, sigh! Somehow blaming others for all things gone wrong, gives you immense happiness & satisfaction, what say ;)?

On another note, I’m so happy to share with you that this little space crossed the mark of 10,000 + page views per day. It was a great feeling & it’s all because of YOU. Thank You very much for your support & encouragement.

Here’s wishing you & your loved ones a Happy & Blessed Easter! May the risen Christ bless you with peace, happiness & prosperity!

One more thing, just because its called Easter chicken doesnt mean, you can make this only on Easter day. You can make it for any special occasion or make it on an ordinary day & turn that into a special one :) Btw, you can also check out the party menu here, if in case you are still undecided about the Easter menu.

Now, shall we go to the recipe?

  • Hi Maria,
    Tried this chicken curry yesterday…it was absolutely yum…tasted even better today. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Merry Christmas & a happy new year in advance. God bless!

  • Hi Maria;

    I cooked this curry today for my birthday boy (hubby) dinner, and it was superb. I don’t have chicken with bones so I resorted to use boneless chicken breast. Next time I’ll use whole chicken and try again. Thank you for sharing. Belated New Year wishes to you and family.

    • Hi Gangka,

      Thanks a lot for sharing your feedback here. Bleated b’day wishes to your husband!

      I should say this recipe tastes better with boned chicken, so please try it sometime :)

      Thanks for your wishes & wish you too a wonderful new year!

      Cheers

  • Hi Maria
     This is one of the best chkn curries i hv ever made. The best part is the chkn need not to be fried. Comes with enough gravy and just right with roti and appam. Thanks for sharing.

    -Tres

    • Hi Tres,

      I’m thrilled to read your comment, one of the best chicken curries, eh, thank you! 

      As always, thanks a ton for posting a comment here :)

      Cheers
      Maria

  • Tried this excellent chicken curry. We had it with roti..I am planning to try it for a dinner party with appam. Can you suggest a vegetable curry for appam – it is not a malayali crowd .

    • Hi RS,

      I’m sorry for the delayed reply :( I’m away on holiday now, so I dont check mails regularly, that’s why.

      If egg is ok you can try egg & peas curry or egg roast or egg and potato curry (you can try this without eggs too) Otherwise you can try mushroom peas masala.

      Btw, nice to know that you liked the easter chicken curry, thanks for trying this.

      Cheers

  • Hi Maria, if i want to try out this recipe for 1 kg chicken do i double the quantity of all the ingredients mentioned?? will a kg of chicken be sufficient for a gathering of 7-8 people.. pls suggest ( iam new to cooking)

    • Hi Mini,

      I guess you will need around 1.5 kg chicken for 7-8 people, it also depends on how you cut the chicken, big or small pieces.

      hhmm for double the qty, ideally it should be double the ingredients but for curries, I dont think its the best way. I’m sorry dear, I wont be able to give the measurements off handedly :((((

      Cheers
      Maria

  • Hi San,

    For cashew paste, soak 8-10 cashews in 1-2 tbsp hot water for 15 mins. Grind it into a smooth paste and use.

    Sorry for the delayed reply :((

    Cheers
    Maria

  • I prepared this curry.. It came out really well
