Chicken masala gravy is a delicious and mouth watering gravy that you can make on special occasions and feasts. Ground onions and green chillies add a nice flavour to the gravy and the pureed tomatoes and chicken masala give a nice red colour. The gravy tastes great with both Biryani and roti.


½ kilo chicken
3 tbsp oil
2 onions roughly chopped
2 green chillies
3 tomatoes deseeded
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp curd
½ lemon
1 tbsp chicken masala
Salt to taste
Chopped coriander leaves 

  • Take onions and green chillies in a mixer jar and grind to a paste.
  • Grind the tomatoes as well and keep ready.
  • Take a pressure cooker, add the onion chilli  paste, tomato paste, curd, salt, chicken masala powder, lemon juice and ginger garlic paste and mix well.
  • Add the chicken pieces and ½ cup of water and close the lid.
  • Pressure cook for 3 whistles.
  • Then heat oil in a pan and transfer the chicken gravy from the pressure cooker to it. (Do not add the chicken now)
  • Cook for a few minutes while stirring till the gravy starts thickening.
  • Now, add the chicken pieces as well, close a lid and cook in low flame for about 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with Biryani, roti or as a side dish with rice.
