Author: Maria Jose Martin

Ingredients

  • 1 kg Chicken
  • 1 cup Small Onion
  • 3 medium Tomato
  • 4 Green chili
  • 1/2 cup Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 small piece Cinnamon
  • 4 Cloves
  • 10 Red chilli
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • Salt
  • Curry Leaves

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a pan. Fry small onions, tomato & green chilli separately & keep aside. Grind together turmeric powder, cinnamon, clove, red chilli, pepper and cumin seeds.
  • Stir the ground masala in the remaining oil. Add chicken pieces & salt to the masala & stir. Add required amount of water to cook chicken & cover it with a lid. Once the chicken is cooked well add the fried onions, tomatoes, green chillies & garnish with curry leaves.

Notes

Adding coconut cashew paste after the chicken is done will make a thicker & much tastier gravy. Grind together 1/4 cup of grated coconut and 1 tbsp of chopped nuts with 1 tbsp water to a smooth paste. Add this paste to the curry, once the chicken is cooked & mix well. proceed with the rest of the recipe.

  • Hi Maria,
    I’m new to your world of recipes. I came to know about your website through one of the episode of showmethecurry.com. Its only today that I tried Masala chicken (My 1st try from your website). I’ve never made a chicken curry without Eastern Chicken masala. So I wasn’t confident enough about this recipe. But I was wrong!!! And I’m glad about it… :) The curry has come out so yum!! And the proof… My 2year old son asked me for more & more…!!! Can’t express my joy Maria!!
    Thank you!

    I would like to get the recipe of pepper chicken, which is my hubby’s favourite item. I tried one recipe from the net, which did not come out that good.

    Hope to get a positive response and wish you a very happy New Year.

    I look forward to more and more of your recipes.
