How to make Desi Chicken Curry

  1. Pound an inch of ginger, some garlic and green chillies into a rough mixture.
  2. Pound two medium-sized sliced onions as well.
  3. Make a paste of standard dry masalas (turmeric, chilli powder, cumin, coriander). Add just enough water to form a paste.
  4. Heat up a Kadhai. Add 3 tablespoon of mustard oil. Heat well. Add a bay leaf.
  5. Add the ginger, garlic and green chilli mixture and the pound onions. Saute well and add the masala paste. Add a cup of pureed tomato as well. You may add finely chopped tomatoes instead.
  6. Continue deglazing the Kadhai with water for the Masala to be done nicely.
  7. Add 400 gms of roughly cubed, boneless chicken. You may add regular chicken.
  8. Adjust salt accordingly.
  9. Once done, add roasted Kasuri Methi and a handful of freshly chopped coriander.
  10. Add a teaspoon of standard Garam Masala and a tablespoon of clarified butter (ghee).

My Tip:

Don't add water unnecessarily.
