Yogurt Chicken Curry

I usually need lots of curry or chutney for Idli and Dosa, so to match the Idli I cooked chicken curry but substituted yogurt for coconut milk. This was a delicious and healthy curry compared to the usual ones, if you try I'm sure you will love it.

Let's check how I made this;


1 kg chicken (cut into small pieces)
1 onion sliced
1 tomato diced
1 cup of yogurt
2 tbsp of meat curry masala
1 sprig of curry leaves
4 potatoes (cut into wedges)
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp of chilli paste
1 tsp of fennel seed
1 tsp of cumin seed
1 cinnamon stick
2 star anise
4 cloves
1 tbsp of oil
3 cups of water
Salt to taste

In a pan, heat oil and add cinnamon, star anise, cloves, fennel seed, cumin seed, curry leaves, onion and ginger garlic paste, fry until fragrant. Now add tomato, potato and water and let it boil. Once it start boiling add curry masala, chilli paste and cover until the masala raw smell goes off.

Now add the cleaned chicken pieces and let it cook, add salt and let the gravy reduce to half its content then add yogurt. Let the curry simmer for about 5 minutes and Yogurt Chicken Curry is ready to be served.

Do try and let me know how it turned out!
