Tip to make best chicken curry:

Chicken: You may use boneless chicken as well. Check for the doneness once the chicken is ready. You can also pressure cook for 2 hisses to cook the chicken.

Brown onions: If you have brown onions either homemade or store-bought in hand just go for it. Brown onions perfect suits for this recipe.

Ginger&Garlic: Freshly made ginger garlic paste gives you more aromas to the chicken curry. You may crush the ginger and garlic lightly using mortar pestle.

Spice powders: I have added chilli powder and turmeric powder for this recipe. You may add pepper powder, curry powder or garam masala as per your taste bud.


Vegetables: Veggies like potato, capsicum, cauliflower, broccoli, mushroom, cottage cheese can be added along with the chicken. Simply dice them to small bite cubes and add-in.

Coconut milk: If you love the flavours of coconut milk and you want to make the curry one step further to make it delicious, add coconut milk or coconut cream that gives you creamy, silky chicken curry.
