The Chicken Gravy is a popular non-vegetarian curry that is a part of Indian cuisine.

The Chicken Gravy is a curry that is made by marinating pieces of chicken in a batter made of yogurt and chilli powder. Coat the chicken pieces well with batter in order to ensure that flavours of the batter are well infused with the juices of the chicken pieces. The better the marination, the more flavourful the final dish will be. While the chicken is marinating, fry and sauté the onions, ginger, garlic and tomatoes with dry spices such as kastoori methi, cinnamon and cardamom. Once cooked, let the mixture cool. Once cooled, transfer this mixture into a blender jar and blend it in order to obtain a smooth paste. For the final assembly of the Chicken gravy, add the marinated chicken and onion paste into a separate pan and mix well. Serve this curry with a side of rice or some Indian flatbreads and you have a healthy and filling main dish to serve to your friends and family at home.
