A delicious authentic recipe of chicken curry. I've had this almost every day growing up. If you want a more creamy and smooth sauce, blend the onions and tomatoes before adding the chicken and potatoes.


  • olive oil : 2 Tbsp
  • onions, diced : 2 piece
  • ginger-garlic paste : 1 Tbsp
  • tomatoes, diced : 2 piece
  • cayenne pepper, or more to taste : 1 tsp
  • curry powder : 1 tsp
  • garam masala : 1 tsp
  • ground turmeric : 1 tsp
  • ground cumin : 1 tsp
  • skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces : 4 piece
  • red-skinned potatoes, chopped : 2 piece
  • fresh cilantro : 0.5 cup

Stages of cooking

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the onions in the hot oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the ginger-garlic paste and continue cooking another 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; stir the tomatoes into the mixture and cook until the tomatoes are pulpy, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with the cayenne pepper, curry powder, garam masala, turmeric, and cumin; cook and stir another 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken and potatoes to the mixture in the skillet; simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle the cilantro over the mixture and continue simmering another 10 minutes. Serve hot.
