Recipe of Chicken Curry

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Salt 1-2 Teaspoons
Tomato 1 Numbers
Ginger 50 Grams
Garlic 3-4 Clove
Onions 2 Numbers
Cinnamon 2-3 Piece
Red Chilli Powder 1/2 Teaspoons
Cumin Powder 3 Teaspoons
Chicken Drumsticks Or Thighs 10 Numbers
Cardamom 3-4 oz
Tumeric Powder 3/4 Teaspoons


Remove the skin from the chicken then wash it thoroughly four to five times. Peel the skin off the onions and finely chop them. Shred the garlic into very fine pieces and mash or cut the ginger. Grind the whole cinnamon and cadamom (with shells) together to a coarse powder. Pour enough oil to just cover the base of a dry medium to large saucepan and heat until the oil is very hot but not smoking. Add the garlic and the onions to the oil . Fry until the onions brown. Remove the saucepan from the heat and leave to stand. Place all the spices (tumeric, cumin powder and chilli powder) into a small cereal bowel. Add about half a cup of water and mix. Pour the spice mixture into the onions. Fry on a medium heat until most of the water evaporates but ensure that the spice mixture does not burn. Add the chicken and stir until all the chicken is coated. Reduce to low heat. Add the salt, tomato and ginger and cook for 10 - 15 minutes. Then add enough water to just cover the chicken. Place a lid on the saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce to medium heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender. Add the cadamom / cinnamon powder 10 minutes before the chicken is served. Mrs Pal's chicken curry is ready to be served straight away but tastes even better the next day! Start the recipe as above but add the chicken first into the onions, then the spices directly onto the chicken, followed by tomato, ginger and salt. Stir vigorously for 5 minutes on a high heat and add enough water to cover the chicken. The curry is ready in 30 minutes.

how does one print this recipie?

I am planning to do this chicken curry today. I think instead of writing 3 - 4 numbers of cardamom, it is written as 3 - 4 oz which is a typing error. If you put 3 - 4 oz of cardamom, then the name of the curry will be CARDAMOM CHICKEN CURRY! as the cardamom flavor is very strong!

The chicken curry is good. I agree with the above comments. I only put 3-4 qty of cardamoms (not oz) and it tasted good.

I cooked this chicken curry today. The flavour was beautiful except I find 3 - 4 oz of cardamon is a bit too much. The massive amount of cardamon actually spoiled the taste and the stew turn bitter instead. I would suggest to reduce the quantity of cardamon next time when I cook this recipe again.
