How to Make the Popular Curry:

This recipe is so easy to make and it can be made in a non-stick pot or pressure cooker.

We start by sauteing onions, ginger + garlic in hot oil.

Then saute potatoes and cook till 70% done.

Then add chicken, and all the spices and cook everything together till the chicken is tender. (as we are using boneless chicken / chicken breasts, the chicken cooks within 5 minutes).

Then add tomato + yogurt and cook everything further.

Finally, add water and let the curry simmer for 5 minutes for all the meat, potatoes, and spices to mix and cook together.

Once done, transfer to a serving bowl, top with chopped cilantro/coriander, and serve hot.


Extra Tips / Serving Suggestions:

As a rule of thumb, any curry that you make using potatoes tend to thicken up when kept for 2-3 hours or longer. 

Hence, add some extra water and reheat. You might need to add salt as per taste too.

The curry stays good in the fridge for up to 2 days.

It can be served as the mail entree of one of the main entrees along with any other recipe like fish, greens, etc.

The number one option to serve this with is hot steamed rice but you can serve it with roti, paratha, dinner rolls, quinoa, farro, etc.

A light onion-tomato or cucumber salad goes very well with this recipe.
