Playing with recipes (Chicken Curry)

Last time we went to India and we had delicious Chicken Briyani, hope you enjoyed yours because i certainly did. I know you wouldn't forget in a hurry the long list of ingredients we had to use, the good news is, virtually all those ingredients are the basics to every Indian recipe, so having filled my kitchen store with Indian ingredients i had to desperately search for more Indian recipe that i can comfortably eat and enjoy and make over and over again (lol).
And i found this recipe, didn't need to buy much, i had virtually all the ingredients waiting to be used in a sealed container...hehehe.
Let us prepare Chicken Curry.


3 chicken breast (cut into bite sizes)
4 tomatoes (chopped)
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 onion (chopped)
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon  tomato paste
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 green chili (chopped)
1 cup yogurt
1 coconut milk
1 tablespoon curry power
1 teaspoon coriander powder
salt to taste
a pinch sugar
4 potatoes (diced)
a hand full of fresh green coriander (finely chopped)
2 bay leaves


1. Heat the oil in a pot. Saute onion until lightly browned. Stir in the tomatoes, tomatoes paste, add the ginger, garlic paste. Stir for about a minute and cover the pot.
2. Stir in all the powder ingredients the ginger, garlic powder, paprika, cumin powder, turmeric powder, chili powder, coriander powder, salt, sugar (a pinch), curry powder, green chili and bay leaves.
3. Add the chicken and potatoes and stir everything together (do not add water) cover the pot and let it sit on the heat for about 3 minutes, stir constantly so it doesn't burn.
4. Pour in the yogurt and coconut milk, stir and taste, adjust seasoning if need be. Add the coriander leaves. Cover back your pot, allow it come to a boil and your chicken curry is ready to be served.
