This is another chicken recipe from my mother. The curry is moderately spicy and creamy and tastes great with anything, be it rice, chapathi, dosas, or upma.


300 gms chicken
3 tbsp oil
1 onion chopped
1 tbsp grated garlic
1 tbsp grated ginger
1 tsp cumin powder
1 onion ground to a paste
3 tomatoes pureed
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp pepper powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup curd
½ tsp garam masala powder
1 tbsp soya sauce
½ cup fresh cream
1 cup water
Handful of coriander leaves


  • Heat oil in a pan, add onions and saute till the onions turn golden.
  • Toss in grated garlic and ginger and saute till the raw smell goes.
  • Add cumin powder and ground onion paste and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Next add tomato puree and cook till the oil starts separating.
  • Then add red chilli powder, pepper powder, coriander powder, salt and curd.
  • Mix well and add chicken and coriander leaves. Give a quick stir, add water and bring the curry to a boil. Add more water if you want.
  • Cook for a minute and add garam masala, cream and soya sauce.
  • Mix well and continue to cook in high flame for 2 to 3 minutes, then reduce heat, close a lid and cook the curry for about 10 minutes or till the chicken is done.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
