How to make Spicy and Tasty Chicken Curry

This chicken curry is real tasty and spicy, try it and you will love it. The masala is properly absorbed by chicken.

It’s easy to prepare with minimal ingredients usually available at home. tastes best with naan, rice or roti. I like it just like that.


· Chicken- 10 medium pieces
· Yogurt – 1 cup
· Onion – 2 medium-finely chopped
· Garlic- 5 cloves- grated or paste
· Ginger-1 tablespoon- grated or paste
· Tomatoes-4 small/medium- blend
· Turmeric-1 teaspoon
· Coriander/Dhania powder- 2 tablespoon
· Red chili powder-1 tablespoon
· Garam masala powder- 1 teaspoon
· Garam masala whole- 4 cloves’, 1 big cardamom, bay leaf, whole red chilli- 2
· Salt-to taste
· Coriander leaves for garnishing


· Mix yogurt with half red chili powder, dhania powder and salt.
· Add chicken pieces to the yogurt mixture and keep aside
· In a deep frying pan heat oil and put whole garam masala in it
· Add onions and sauté till they become translucent
· Now add ginger garlic paste and sauté
· Add all the masala powder stir and add chicken and yogurt mixture
· Cook on slow heat till the chicken is 3/4th cooked
· Add tomatoes and cook further on slow heat till chicken is fully cooked and oil starts separating. · Garnish with chopped coriander

No need to add water while cooking. If you like thin gravy you may add water at the end.
If you want you can also add chicken curry powder available in grocery stores in the chicken yogurt mixture.
