200 gms boneless chicken cut into small pieces
1 ½ tbsp corn flour
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp oil

For the gravy

2 tbsp oil
1 capsicum chopped
1 onion chopped
10 cloves of garlic chopped
1 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp soya sauce
2 tsp tomato sauce
1/3 tsp salt
½ tsp red chilli powder
¼ tsp pepper powder
2 cups chicken stock
¼ cup spring onions chopped


First boil the chicken pieces with 2 ½ cups water and ¼ tsp salt in a pressure cooker for 5 minutes or 1 whistle. Allow it to cool, set aside the chicken stock for later use and take the chicken pieces in a bowl. Add corn flour and 1 to 2 tbsp water and coat the chicken completely with the paste. Heat a pan and stir fry this in 2 tbsp oil for 1 to 2 minutes and set aside. Then add 2 tbsp oil to the same pan, add garlic and stir fry for a minute. Then add onions and sauté till golden. Now add capsicum and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add soya sauce, tomato sauce, red chilli powder, pepper powder, and salt. Mix well. Then add spring onions and corn flour dissolved in chicken stock to the gravy. Cook till boils appear. Finally add chicken pieces, mix well and cook for a few seconds in low flame. Serve hot with fried rice, roti or even plain rice.


  1. Flavor rich chicken recipe

  2. Hi Amina,
    Excellent recipe!Garlic chicken is one of my most favorite dishes but I've never cooked it at home.But I'll try very soon:)Just a quick question I have - I found you have mentioned all-purpose flour but have not used it while cooking.Did you mean to coat the chicken with flour before frying instead of corn flour?I guess both should do fine - but I will look out for your verdict on this!

  3. You are absolutely right... i made a mistake in the ingredients.. we are using only cornflour in the recipe, not all purpose flour.. thanks a lot for informing me this.. have made the changes.. :)
