This is how to make authentic Indian Chicken Curry, with perfectly steamed rice and a spicy curry sauce that will send your taste buds for a spin. It is one of my all-time favourite chicken recipes and it’s so simple to make.
What can I say – this is one of those dishes that I find myself coming back to more often than any other recipe. It’s lighter than butter chicken, yet flavourful, and depending on the amount of heat you would like to add it can leave you in tears of joy. This is my favourite dish at any Indian restaurant and a perfect comfort food (aside from Chicken Vindaloo, a story for a different day).
It’s so simple to make and can be prepped in about 30 to 35 minutes. This recipe was originally given to me by my father-in-law. I’ve made a few tweaks to along the way to bring out the flavours of the chicken curry.
Now, this recipe covers the basics and creates a mild curry; if you need to pack in a bit more heat, add in some fresh green Thai chilies and a tsp more of red chili powder.
The beauty of this dish is that it scales easily and allows for mistakes. If you need to make additional servings just add in half a tsp of all the spices (exclude the sugar), ½ onion and tomato, clove of garlic, cup of water or chicken broth and a piece or two of chicken.
That’s it! Amazing tasty Chicken Curry made right at home.
