Today i am here with a very simple and quick chicken curry recipe, which can be prepared very easily and will be a great combination to have with rice ,chapathi,appam etc.Most of the time i  make this curry along with chapathi andd my family love it.

First  i marinate the chicken pieces and let the meat to absorb all the flavours of the masala for almost 20 minutes.Here i have some lemon juice while marinating the chicken ,which makes the curry more delicious and tasty.


For marination

Chicken -1 k.g

Lemon juice-1 tbsp

Turmeric powder-1/4 th tsp

chilli powder(kashmiri and normal)-2 tsp

pepper-1 tsp






green chillies-2

ginger -small sized

garlic 4-5

oil-2 tbsp

bay leaf-1

turmeric powder-1/2 tsp

  • wash and the chicken pieces ,marinate with lemon juice and masalas. Keep the marination for 20 minutes.
  • In  a heavy bottom pan add 2 tbsp of oil ,when it gets heated up add ,bay leaf.
  • Add crushed ginger  ,green chillies and garlic and saute it util it raw taste goes away.
  • Drop thinly sliced onions and chopped  tomatoes ,let it become soft and mushy.
  • Sprinkle enough salt.
