  • 400 gm chicken sliced / chunks
  • 4 large onions

  • 4 laung / cloves
  • 2 tej pata / bay leaf
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 2 cardamoms
  • 5-6 (or one tin) large red tomatoes

  • 1/4 cup low fat yogurt/curd

How to make Healthy Chicken Curry

  • Take a pan and put 2 tsp oil. Not too much cause there will be Saffola oil coming out of chicken as well
  • Now add onion cut in long slices, cinnamon, tej pata, cardamom, garlic paste. Saute all this in oil nicely till the onion gets little brown
  • Get off the gas and let the onions cool. Once they are little cool, churn / blend all this with chopped tomatoes and the curd / yogurt till you have a smooth paste
  • Note: Do not wash the pan in which onion was cooked before and let the left over oil of onions be in the pan
  • Now take the earlier pan and saute chicken in left over oil of onion
  • After chicken is almost done, add the onion, tomato/curd/Carrot puree paste with chicken and cook
  • Add salt to taste, red chilli, coriander powder, haldi, green chillies
  • Finally let chicken get cook until the oil comes out and starts floating on the top
  • The color of the tomatoes should change to a nice red by now
  • Garnish it with coriander before serving
