Chicken Curry

The BEST chicken curry I have ever had!! This is the simplest form of chicken curry which we have learnt from our mothers ages ago. But I guess I could not make this curry so wonderfully as my husband I guess you can understand why it is the best :)....This weekend I did not cook anything as my dear hubby took charge of the kitchen and he made this tasty dish for me. One thing is for onwards he will always make this chicken curry on any occasion.

Ingredients :

1. Chicken breast-4
2. Onion (large)- 2 1/2
3. Tomato- 2
4. Green chilly- 4
5. Garlic paste- 1 tbs
6. Ginger paste- 3/4 tsp
7. Butter- 1 tbs
8. Coriander powder- 2 tbs
9. Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
10. Red chilly powder- 1 tsp
11. Chicken masala powder- 1/2 tsp
12. Oil- 4 tbs
13. Salt to taste
14. Sugar- 1 tsp


Cut the chicken breasts into medium chunks. Make a smooth paste of the onion, tomato and chilly. In a pan heat oil and fry the chicken pieces until they leave the water. In a kadhayi heat the 4 tbs oil and add the onion paste. Keep frying the paste until it changes color. Stir the mixture at certain intervals so that it does not stick to the base. The color of the mixture should turn dark brown. Then add the ginger,garlic paste and roast until the raw smell goes off. Add the masala powders and sugar. Fry the mixture for another 3 to 4 minutes while constantly stirring it. Add the chicken pieces to it and mix well. Add the butter and fry the chicken with the masala over low flame. When the masala will start to stick to the base, add water. Cover the kadhayi and cook it over medium flame until the water dries up a bit and the chicken is done. We prefer a little thick gravy so we evaporated most of the water. Add salt accordingly and remove the cover of the kadhayi. Cook it for another few minutes and turn off the heat. Serve hot with plain rice.

It was really delicious and amazing!!
