I know there are so many different chicken curries out there. And when I mean there are so many, I mean SO MANY. I have basically lost count of from the classic chicken jalfrezi to the traditional butter chicken to the British chicken tikka masala to the authentic chicken karahi. However, each chicken curry recipe has its own special place in my heart.
I like to use chicken drumsticks in this chicken masala curry recipe because that’s just my personal preference as I like to use bone-in chicken. However, you can use chicken breasts or other boneless chicken pieces as well. Just use whatever you like. If you want to use boneless chicken, then remember to reduce the cooking time as bone-in chicken takes a bit longer.
The restaurant versions of this chicken masala recipe take time to prepare and always use cream or yoghurt. However, my chicken masala recipe is very simple. It needs no blending, no overnight marination, no yoghurt or cream yet it does not compromise on any flavour at all! So, if you’re lactose intolerant or if you want a quick curry night meal then you have found the chicken curry recipe for you!
I love to have this chicken curry with a side of naan, although chapatti is much more frequently made at home, it is entirely up to you. Sometimes I serve it with my lamb pulao or chicken pilau rice, and it goes perfectly. Usually, when I serve it with rice, I do tend to water it down so when I drench my pilau with this spicy curry the rice can absorb all of the flavour. It just tastes so yum!
