Simple, Easy Chicken Curry

Chicken curry is a basic in every non-vegetarian home. But a thought struck me the other day that there may be some one who is just starting out and has no clue as to how to go about preparing a simple, everyday Chicken curry. The someone may be a newly married bride, a bachelor, a girl away from home and mom's cooking etc. etc. anyone..... So I decided to add this to my Non - Vegetarian menu.

Simple, Everyday Chicken Curry

Ingredients :

chicken - 1 kilogram
onions - 2 (big) finely chopped / pureed
tomatoes - 2 (medium)
haldi (turmeric) - half tsp
red chilli powder - 2 tsp
jeera (cumin) powder - 1 tsp
dhania (coriander) powder - 2 tsp
ginger - garlic paste - 2 tsp
cooking oil
salt - to taste

Process :
Heat oil. Fry onions till light brown.
Add ginger - garlic paste and chicken pieces and fry well till golden brown.
Add the spices and fry well.
Stir in the chopped/pureed tomatoes and mix well.
Cover with a lid and let it cook for 15 - 20 minutes till chicken is tender.
Garnish with coriander leaves.

Note: this will be a little dry and can be eaten along with chapati/rotis/parathas.
If gravy is required, you may add a little water and mix well. To be eaten with hot steamed rice.
