Potato is a completely optional ingredient for this preparation. We like potatoes, so use them in this curry recipe. You may or may not use this. If you use potato, then half fry it and then add them with chicken. The full fried potato will be melted once it thoroughly cooked along with the chicken.

Red chilli powder  – It is used for the red colour texture of the curry. This powder is not spicy.

Red chilli powder – For a spicy taste, we use this powder. If you like more spicy, you can add according to your taste.

Turmeric powder, salt, sugar – These will help the colour, taste and balance of the dish.

Yogurt – I use Amul yogurt for the thickness of the curry. It also adds to the taste.

Onion, Ginger, Green Chilli, Garlic and Tomato – These also make the curry thick, tasty and spicy. The use of “beresta” ( Golden-fried thin onion) improves the texture.

Garam Masala – You can use any branded comapny’s garam masala. I prefer to use homemade garam masala. I will provide you with the process of homemade garam masala in my next content. Its taste is far better than any branded one.

Ghee – Amul ghee is my preferred choice. The taste of this ghee is unique. You can use any branded or homemade ghee. Though I like homemade ghee, The cream in today’s milk is not the same as it was in the past.

Mustard Oil – Mustard oil is perfect for this dish rather than any other oil.

Tips for making Chicken Curry Recipe

⇔ Marination in the right way is very essential to make this dish. Always remember that all ingredients should be properly and evenly mixed up with the chicken.

⇔ The more you keep the marinated chicken in the refrigerator more will be the taste. I prefer to keep marinated chicken over the night. You can find the difference.

⇔ Most of the preparation should be on the low flame. It helps to boil the chicken completely and become soft.
