How to make Plain Chicken Curry

  1. Wash the chicken well & marinate it with 1/2tbsp turmeric powder,1tbsp kashmiri red chilli powder,lemon juice,some salt & 1tbsp ginger garlic paste for an hour.
  2. Heat up oil in a pan & then temper with cinamon,cardamom,peepercorn,bay leaves,cloves,a pinch of sugar & then add chopped onions(add a pinch of salt in it so that the onion caramelizes well).
  3. When the onion gets fried well & turns brown,add 1tbsp ginger garlic paste,mix well & after 2 minutes add the cumin & coriander powder.
  4. Now after 5minutes,add the chopped tomato & keep cooking at a medium flame until the tomato gets fully smashed.The pan must be covered with a lid to get it done.
  5. After the tomato is well cooked add a little turmeric powder & 1tbsp(or more acc to your taste) red chilli powder & mix well.
  6. After a minute add the marinated chicken,mix well,cover the pan with a lid & keep cooking at a medium flame.
  7. The chicken will give off water in which it gets boiled.
  8. When the chicken is 70% cooked,add the capsicum,salt & again cover the pan until the chicken is fully cooked.
  9. When the chicken is fully cooked & the gravy thickens,sprinkle shahi garam masala on it,mix well & its ready to serve now with hot rice,puri,paratha or even bread.

My Tip:

1.Fresh tomato puree can be added instead of chopped tomato. 2.You can add 1cup of warm water during cooking,if you want a lighter gravy. 3.You can add 1tbsp ghee/butter before switching off the flame.
