Last night I was craving some very simple, easy, and no-fuss food, and was totally uninspired as to what I should cook for dinner, had some chicken in the freezer but was really not feeling upto cooking anything elaborate so I just followed my heart and came up with this SIMPLEST of chicken curry's which is so perfect for Bachelors or students, not that I am saying that all you of you out there cannot make it, in fact I feel all of us need a break and want something really quick and easy to rustle up at a moment's notice, in fact these kind of recipes are a favorite with all of us and I am sure even you must be having YOUR favorite too!!, All the ingredients are chopped by hand, since here I am assuming that most student's or bachelors do not own a mixer/grinder and believe me the chunky bits taste delicious!, also the entire recipe involves just one kadhai/frying pan, so there's minimal cleaning up later!!.The simplicity of this chicken curry does in no way compromise on the taste which is so rustic and full-bodied, it makes my mouth water just at the very thought of it :), perfect with plain boiled rice, or hot paranthas.
- Chicken-1 (about700gms, cut into small pieces)
- Onions-3 medium (chopped)
- Tomatoes-3 medium(chopped)
- Green chillies-2 chopped
- Oil-1/2 cup
- Ginger and garlic- 1 tbsp each, chopped
- Garam masala-1 tbsp
- Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp.
Heat oil in a large kadhai, add the chicken pieces a few at a time and fry till well browned, now add all the chicken back in the kadhai and toss in the rest of the ingredients except for garam masala, and cover, cook on low flame for 15-20 minutes,stirring every 5 minutes or so, then add some hot water, once oil separates from the masala, lastly season with salt , add garam masala and cook covered for further 5 minutes, serve hot.You can add more water if you want more gravy in the chicken.
