Chicken in yogurt gravy

My two girls are greatly fond of chicken curries – the more they get, the more they crave for it. Every time I buy chicken they ask for ‘curry with a difference’. Creative me – I never run out of ideas. This time, in the cold of winter when they wanted chicken curry, I came up with this recipe of ‘Chicken in yogurt gravy’ which is delicate and light. To my pleasant surprise it turned out delicious! So here we go with the recipe….

Ingredients:

Chicken drumsticks 500 g

Yogurt/curd 1 and 1/2 cup

Large onions 2, thinly sliced

Garlic paste 1 tsp

Ginger paste 1 tsp

Chili powder 1 – 2 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1 tsp

Garam masala – 1 tsp

Juice of 1/2 lime

Fresh coriander – 1 handful, washed and chopped

Salt to taste

Any cooking oil – 1 tbsp (I used mustard oil)

Instructions:

  • Mix yogurt with ginger-garlic paste, chili powder, garam masala, turmeric powder, salt and juice of lime.
  • Add chicken to this mixture and leave aside to marinade it for 15-20 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a pan and saute the sliced onions until golden brown.
  • Add marinated chicken and stir fry for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add rest of the yogurt mix and keep stirring every now and then.
