It was a pure coincidence. I prepared this chicken curry as a basic ingredient for the famous Hyderabadi ChickenBiriyani but my kid liked it as a curry rather than as chicken biriyani. So I decided to serve it as a side dish. Here is my easy to prepare Hyderabadi Chicken Curry recipe for you all…

Ingredients:

  • Chicken – 1 kg, curry cut
  • Onion – 3-4 big, finely sliced
  • Garlic – 2 cloves, crushed coarsely
  • Ginger – 2”, crushed coarsely and chopped
  • Green Chilly – 3, chopped
  • yogurt – 1 cup, slightly sour
  • Freshly chopped coriander leaves – handful
  • Fresh mint leaves – handful
  • Oil – 1/2 cup (I used refined sunflower oil)
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Kashmiri Chilly powder – 1 tbsp (adjust according to your taste)
  • Salt to taste
Method of preparation:

  • Heat oil in a pan and deep fry onion till brown and drain on an absorbent paper ( I sun dried the onion slices for 1/2 hrs to make this process easy)
  • When the left over oil is cool, add chicken,coarsely crushed ginger-garlic, green chilly, mint leaves, coriander leaves, turmeric powder, chilly powder, yogurt, fried onion, and salt to taste to the oil, mix well and keep aside for minimum 3-4 hrs
  • Heat a non-stick pan and cook chicken along with the marinade on medium heat till chicken is tender (no water is required for cooking)
