Simple Chicken Curry

Chicken capers

Chicken curry is the go to dish across thousands of Indian households. While tastes differ across the country, the preparation is generally the same; spices are fried in oil, after which the chicken is added and simmered in a broth until cooked.

While in South India, curry leaves and coconut are popular ingredients in chicken curry, North Indian chicken curries tend to use a more expansive variety and quantity of spices.

This chicken curry is cooked in a simple, traditional style. It tastes best when served with naans, rotis or white rice, but can also be eaten with dosas and idlis!
