This is one of the types of chicken curry we make at home. It is one of my favorite chicken fry too. We make it using the 'any time use ground masala paste'. It very easy as the masala is already ready, only add a few other simple ingredients and there you go, you have an amazing, good tasting chicken fry ready.
We made it using boneless chicken, but any type of chicken can be used. And if you like crunchy onions with your chicken, this is the curry for you...:) Its a big hit at our house, kids eat it without any comments...not even 'its spicy' frown, which they would have if its something they don't like!!!!
This is made according to our spice level, please adjust to your spice level.
1 lb to 1 1/2 lb boneless chicken breasts, chopped into 1 - 2 inch pieces
1 onion, chopped small
1 onion, cut lengthwise, julienned
1 tomato, chopped
4 green chillies, chopped
3-4 tbsp masala paste
1/2 tbsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup yogurt
1 tbsp lemon juice or less (depends on your taste)
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
1 tbsp of chopped coriander leaves
Heat oil in a pan. Add and saute the chopped onions and green chillies. Add the masala paste and saute. Add some of the tomato and saute. Add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, black pepper powder and saute. Add the chicken pieces, salt and mix well and saute. When the chicken pieces are cooked, add the yogurt and lemon juice. Mix well. Fry the chicken pieces to the desired level. Add the julienned onions and rest of the tomato and fry well, but make sure the onions are still crunchy. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with rice or as a side item. Enjoy!!!
Tip: If you want more gravy, add more onions, tomatoes and the masala paste.
