How to make Bengali Chicken Curry With Potato (Aloo Murgir Jhol)

  1. Clean the chicken pieces, then marinate with ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, salt and yogurt. Leave it for 20 -25 minutes. (The longer, the better the marinade will be.)
  2. In the meantime, start preparing the curry. First shallow fry the potatoes along with salt and turmeric powder. Keep aside.
  3. Heat more mustard oil and temper with whole garam masalas. Then add sliced onion and green chillies, fry till it turns golden brown. Sprinkle little amount of salt and sugar while frying the onion. The salt will help the onions to cook fast and sugar gives a caramelizing color.
  4. Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes away.
  5. Next add the onion and tomato puree. Cook until the oil leaves the masala and a nice tempting aroma emits. Next add the chicken and fried potato.
  6. Cook on high flame for 10 - 15 minutes, without covering the pan until moisture evaporates, then cook on a low flame for another 5 minutes.
  7. Serve it warm with rice for best taste.
