Incredibly Easy Foolproof Tomato Chicken Curry

Incredibly Easy Foolproof Tomato Chicken Curry

It's easy and simple to make an Indian curry that tastes like the kind you get in Indian restaurants! This is also known as 'butter chicken curry'. Adding more butter will make it richer.

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

A (to season the meat)
Chicken
as much as you like
Plain yogurt
100 g
Curry powder
1 tablespoon
Sugar
1 teaspoon
Salt
1 teaspoon
Grated garlic
as much as you like (2 cm from a tube)
Grated ginger
as much as you like (2 cm from a tube)
B (Curry)
Cashew nuts
40 g
Olive oil
3 tablespoons
Grated garlic
as much as you like (paste in tube, 2 cm)
Grated ginger
as much as you like (paste in tube, 2 cm)
Curry powder
1 tablespoon
Canned tomatoes
1 (400 g)
Oregano leaf
a pinch
Fresh cream
100 ml
Butter
more than 10 g
Salt
as needed (less than 2 teaspoons)
Sugar
as needed (more than 1 teaspoon)

Steps

1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Mix the "A" ingredients well, put in a plastic bag, and let rest overnight.
2. Put the cashew nuts in a blender and mix well. Add a little bit of water to form a paste. You could use a wooden pestle instead.
3. Add the olive oil, garlic, and ginger to a frying pan. Cook over low heat until fragrant. If you prefer your curry spicy, add red chili pepper.
4. Add 1 tablespoon of curry powder, mix over low heat for 2 minutes, and cook until fragrant, avoiding burning the mixture.
5. Open the canned tomatoes, add to the pan, then sprinkle in the oregano. Mix with a wooden spatula. Simmer for 4 to 5 minutes over medium heat.
6. Add the chicken and sauce into the frying pan and mix.
7. Add the cashew nut paste and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes over low to medium heat.
8. Finally, add the butter and fresh cream. When it boils, season with salt and sugar and it's done. If you prefer a richer taste, add more butter.
9. Serve in a dish and pour fresh cream on top. It goes well with cooked rice and naan bread, too.
