There are a lot of different chicken curries out there from chicken jalfrezi to chicken karahi to butter chicken. However, out of all of them, this is one of my favourites. A common occurrence in our household that always makes an appearance at family events!
This is a very simple chicken curry that is perfect for beginners. With so many curry chicken masala recipes out there who knows what the authentic recipe is?
However, generally, this chicken curry recipe is made without double cream or coconut milk. This makes it much lighter than other chicken curries.
The main difference between this chicken curry and other chicken curries such as chicken masala or chicken jalfrezi is that this curry chicken recipe has a much thinner soup-like consistency. Most chicken curries have a thick masala, but this chicken curry recipe is different in that aspect.
Often it is served with lamb pilau or chicken pilau or even simple boiled basmati rice. Sometimes I like to serve it with chapatti or naan. It is guaranteed to be full of flavour no matter how you choose to serve it.
I usually make this curry with pieces of a whole, skinless chicken. This means that there would be a mixture of bone-in chicken thighs and chicken drumsticks.
I highly recommend making this with bone-in chicken as it allows for a deeper flavour. You could make it with boneless chicken breasts or boneless chicken thighs if you wanted to.
This easy chicken curry recipe will show you how to make an aromatic and flavourful basic Indian chicken curry. Indian chicken curry is a takeaway favourite that is freezer-friendly and quick to reheat, saving you time and money!
With my recipe for an easy staple Indian chicken curry, you will never have to worry about what to make for your family dinners. Made with just a handful of ingredients, this chicken curry will pair perfectly with garlic naan or even boiled rice.

Made this chicken curry last week – wife (from India) and kid loved it! Will definitely make again!
Hi – silly question but do you remove the skin from the chicken first before cooking?
I love getting chicken curry from a local restaurant but can’t always order it (or shouldn’t). This tastes just like it…so now I can make it at home!
