Authentic Indian Style Curry at Home

Authentic Indian Style Curry at Home

I wanted to eat authentic Indian curry at home! This is not so spicy but tastes pretty authentic! You just need a pan to cook this.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Chicken thigh
1 thigh
1 large
Canned tomato sauce
Vegetable oil
1 tablespoon
☆ Coriander powder
1 tablespoon
☆ Cumin powder
1 tablespoon
☆ Turmeric powder
1 teaspoon
☆ Cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon
☆ Red chili pepper
A touch (or more if you like)
☆ Coarsely ground black pepper
A little (or more if you like)
☆ Garlic, grated
A clove
☆ Grated ginger
A thumb of ginger
☆ Plain yogurt
3-4 tablespoons
☆ Salt
2 teaspoons


1. Remove skin and excess fat from the chicken thigh and cut into bite-sized. Finely chop an onion.
2. Put the ingredients marked ☆ in a bowl, add the chicken thigh and mix. Rest for a while.
3. While marinating the chicken, heat oil in a pan and stir fry the onion.
4. Stir fry until golden brown. It will take about 15-20 minutes.
5. Add the marinated chicken and marinade in the pan and stir-fry.
6. When the chicken surface is cooked, add tomato sauce and water. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
7. Cook until slightly thickened. Serve on rice. This curry also goes well with naan bread.
8. These are the spices I used for this recipe. I put too much red chili pepper, and the curry was too spicy.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried to make a mild curry for my 3 year old who can't eat spicy food and for my husband who doesn't like tart flavour.
