Quick Chicken Curry

Ingredients to make Quick Chicken Curry

  • 350 gms chicken (with bone or boneless)
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 2 medium onions (finely chopped)
  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 piece of ginger
  • 2 green chillis
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds (Saunf)
  • 4 cloves
  • salt as needed
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 1/2 tbs red chilli Powder (I used mild kashmiri red chilli powder)
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tbsp cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala (optional)
  • coriander to Garnish

How to make Quick Chicken Curry

  1. Wash chicken well, wash and peel potatoes and cube them. Blend the tomatoes, chillis, ginger and garlic to a fine puree.
  2. In a pressure cooker, heat oil, and add fennel seeds and cloves. Then after few seconds add finely chopped onions and saute them till they are slightly brown.
  3. Then add the chicken and potatoes and saute them till they turn white from pink. Add in the tomato puree to the chicken.
  4. Add salt and all the spice powders and mix well. Pour a cup of water and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Let the steam release on own and then open the cooker.
  5. If its too watery then allow it to sit on stove top for 4 - 5 minutes until it reaches the consistency you like.

My Tip:

The chicken and potato pieces can be big as we are pressure cooking them, anyway they will cook perfect and soft. If you have ginger garlic paste, then add then before onions and saute them. Else grind ginger and garlic along with tomatoes like I did, Chicken leaves water when cooking, so add water accordingly when cooking. The potatoes absorb all the chicken flavors and would taste really great in this curry. You can skip potatoes too and make only with chicken.
