Ingredients to make Chicken curry the lal maas way

  • onion- 1 (medium to large)
  • garlic paste- 1 tbsp Ginger paste- 1 tsp
  • cumin- 2 tsp
  • salt- 2 tsp (or to taste).

  • Dried bay leaf- 1 large

How to make Chicken curry the lal maas way

  1. Peel the onion, cut into thin, even slices. Keep aside. Lightly whisk the yogurt, keep aside. Prepare the ginger and garlic paste, keep aside.
  2. In a heavy bottomed pan, heat the ghee/oil. Add the whole spices, then add the cumin and let it splutter. Next, add the onion and fry till golden brown on a medium flame.
  3. Once the onion turns a golden brown colour, add the chicken. To the chicken, add all the powdered spices along with the yogurt, salt and ginger and garlic paste.
  4. Simmer till all the liquids evaporate and the chicken pieces are coated with the thick yogurt-spice mixture.
  5. Pour in the hot water and add the red chilies (if using). Simmer till the chicken is cooked. Garnish with chopped fresh coriander.

My Tip:

Boneless chicken works just as well. Adjust cooking time accordingly. Feel free to adjust the amount of chili powder, according to your level of heat tolerance. You can add more or less water, depending on the consistency of the curry you want. You will also have to adjust the salt accordingly. f this is something you’ll be making once in a while, do make it with ghee, there’s nothing like chicken cooked in ghee.
