    This chicken curry recipe is a great dinner. The chicken thighs make it very soft and melt in your mouth! It's so easy to make too. Serve with rice, puri, naan or chappathi.

    Serves: 4 

    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
    • 1 large white onion, finely diced
    • 2 tablespoons ginger garlic paste
    • 2 tablespoons curry powder
    • 3cm cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
    • 8 whole green cardamom pods
    • 4 bay leaves
    • 6 whole cloves
    • 1 tablespoon chilli flakes, or to taste
    • 15 whole black peppercorns
    • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds

    Yes, it seems to be missing the add water or stock part to the recipe. - 23 Aug 2012


    I added chicken stock and a bit of yoghurt as it was super dry. - 05 Nov 2011
