For lunch I wanted to make some, aromatic, creamy chicken which would also be in the form of curry. I searched for the recipe but all in vain, didn’t quite like any recipe I laid my eyes on so, I thought of being more adventureous and made my own recipe which turned out to be all three things I wanted and much more.

It was so creamy and scrumptious and exactly what I was looking for. Hope you try it and then share your views with me.

What you need

Chicken————————————— 1/2 kg with bone
Yoghurt—————————————- 1 cup
Salt——————————————— 1 tsp
White Pepper——————————– 1 tsp
Bay leaves———————————— 3-4
Onion—————————————— 2 finely chopped
Desi ghee———————————— 1/2 cup
Oregano————————————– 1/2 tsp
Black cardamom————————— 3-4
Cream—————————————- 100 ml
Garlic paste———————————- 1 tsp
Ginger paste——————————— 1 tsp

How it’s made

  1. Take a clean, dry pot and add desi ghee in it. You can also use oil if you like but for best flavour, add desi ghee.
  2. Once desi ghee gets a bit warmer, throw in finely chopped onions.
  3. Do not cook onions too long, just when they are light pinkish throw in bay leaves, black cardamom and chicken.
  4. Cook chicken for 10-15 minutes or until slight golden and add garlic/ginger paste, salt, oregano and white pepper.
  5. Give it a good mix and add yoghurt.
  6. Bhoofy for another 10-15 minutes and on a slow flame, pour in cream, and cook till everything gets a good mix.
  7. Cook for another 2-3 minutes and it’s ready to please you family and friends.
Best served with plain rice, naan or tandoori roti.
