Easy Chicken Curry in Thick Gravy Recipe

Hi Guys, today I’ll show you how to make a Simple and Easy Chicken Curry in Thick Gravy. It’s also a healthy curry since we are not using much fat. All the ingredients are listed below in the description section. I’ll be using boneless skinless chicken breasts. You can substitute thighs if you like. This recipe saves time on cutting up a whole chicken and also saves cooking time.
Ingredients:
Chicken breast, boneless, skinless, 2.2 lbs – 1 kg
Yellow Onion – 1.5 lbs – 4 large
Ginger 2 tblsps
Garlic 2 tblsps
Green chiles – 4
Tomatoes – 2 medium

Marinade:
White Vinegar – 2 tablespoons
Garam masala – 1 tsp
Turmeric – ½ tsp
Red Chili powder – ½ tsp
Ground black pepper – ½ tsp
Salt – 1 tsp

When cooking:
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Garam masala – 1 tblsp
Ground Turmeric – ¼ tsp
Salt
Oil – few tablespoons

I’m using 2.2 lbs or 1kg of boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces. Sprinkle 1 tsp salt on the chicken, ½ tsp ground black pepper, ½ tsp ground turmeric, 1 tsp garam masala, ½ tsp red chili powder. Mix this really well. Cover and marinate for at least 1 hour. While the chicken is marinating, you can prep the other ingredients. Cut up 4 large onions, about 1.5 lbs, this is what makes the gravy thick without having to use any fatty ingredients like cream, coconut milk or nuts. 2 tablespoons finely chopped ginger, 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic and 4 green chiles chopped finely. If you want a mild curry, use 2 green chiles and if you want a very spicy curry, feel free to add more chiles. 2 medium tomatoes chopped. After the chicken is marinated, heat up a pan and pour in a few tablespoons of oil, enough to coat the bottom of the pan, remember we have to sautee a lot of onions. Add 1 tsp of cumin seeds and cook for 20 seconds or until you smell them. Add the chopped onions, ½ tsp salt and sautee until golden brown. This will take at least 10 minutes. Stir in between. Before the onions are golden, add the garlic, ginger and green chiles. Sautee until everything is golden. Now we can add the tomatoes. 1 tablespoon of garam masala, ¼ tsp ground turmeric. Mix this, cover and cook until the tomatoes have broken down. Stir occasionally. You can mash the tomatoes a bit. That looks good. Here is the marinated chicken. Add the chicken to the pot and mix well. Cover and cook for 15 – 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and soft. If you’re using chicken thighs, you’ll need to cook for an extra 10 minutes. Also cut the thighs into smaller pieces than the breast. Stir the curry occasionally and add salt if you need to. Here is the thick chicken curry all ready to eat. I serve this with any kind of Indian bread/ wraps. It’s also delicious over rice. I hope you give this tasty curry a try and let me know how you liked it in the comments below.
