Delicious Indian Chicken Curry

I grew up in an Indian household and remember the smell of my mother’s homemade chicken curry wafting through the house. After years of practice, I’ve mastered the art of making a delicious Indian curry that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. With a few simple ingredients, this comforting and flavorful dish can be made in no time at all!

My Indian chicken curry recipe is a combination of traditional Indian spices and herbs that give it a unique flavor. I start by sautéing onions and garlic in a large skillet, then add the chicken and cook until it’s nearly done. I then add a combination of bold spices and herbs, like coriander, cumin, turmeric, and garam masala. To thicken the dish, I add a can of coconut milk and simmer until the chicken is cooked through.

My family loves this dish served over a bed of white rice and topped with a generous sprinkle of fresh cilantro. We also like to add a dollop of plain yogurt on top for a creamy and tangy flavor. My Indian chicken curry is sure to be an instant hit with your family and friends. Enjoy!

Tips: For a vegetarian version, replace the chicken with tofu or chickpeas. To make it spicier, add more garam masala or a pinch of red pepper flakes. For a creamier dish, add a spoonful of Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt.

Variations: For a more flavorful curry, consider adding a few tablespoons of tomato paste. You can also add some vegetables like mushrooms, bell peppers, or carrots for more texture and flavor.
