Chicken in Yogurt Curry

This is an extremely easy dish. I modified a recipe I found in a magazine and it turned out pretty well. The dish has a spicy and sourish tastes to it, great to be eaten with flavoured rice or flatbread.


4-5 chicken pieces (about half chicken)
1 medium onion
5 shallots
3 clove garlic
2 heapful tbsp dried chilli paste
7 large fresh red chilli, de-seeded
2.5 cm tumeric
2 heapful tbsp yogurt
1 1/2 heapful tbsp garam masala
1 sprig curry leave
salt to taste
3 tbsp oil

1. Grind onion, garlic, shallots, tumeric and fresh chilli into paste
2. Heat oil in pot and fry dried chilli paste till oil separates
3. Add paste from 1 and stir fry till fragrant
4. Add curry leave and stir for 2 mins
5. Add yogurt, garam masala and chicken pieces and let chicken pieces cook for about 5mis
6. Add water and let it simmer till chicken are fully cooked and gravy thicken
7. Add salt to taste and serve hot with rice or bread
