Lazy Masala chicken

food photography and styling of chicken curry

Its a combination of a sweet cold and warmth in the air and this recipe is something I don't have to think much about. The variation and combination is endless, I haven't added much veggies but don't be scared to. Personally its a thick gravy with crispy chicken. Pair it with bread, chapati or have it just like that. It taste awesome.

You will find most of the ingredients you have in your pantry and all you need to come out of that shell of yours and swing yourself in the kitchen.


Chicken thighs

Tomato: Finely chopped

Onion: Finely sliced

Green chilly: finely chopped

Garlic: Roughly chopped

Salt to taste

Black pepper powder

Coriander powder

Turmeric powder

Cumin powder

Tomato puree

Soya sauce

Mustard oil: you can choose any oil of your choice


Take your chicken thighs and marinate it with salt, pepper, cumin, coriander and turmeric powder and add some mustard oil and keep it for an hour or overnight.

Heat your pan on a medium flame and sprinkle some oil, add the marinated chicken and tomato, green chilly and onion and allow the chicken skin to get crispy. Post 5 min add cup and two of water and cover the pan with its lid and let the steam cook the chicken slowly. When the gravy starts to thicken add tomato puree and soya sauce and let it cook for more 10 to 15 min. (when the flesh starts to leave the bone, its a sign of a cooked chicken)

You can serve it as it is or with bread or chapati at the side. Sprinkle some lime juice if needed.
