Indian Curry Chicken and Rice

This flavorful Indian chicken curry recipe is fairly easy to make and always a crowd pleaser, especially with a colorful garnish like cilantro or sliced green onions.

There are a lot of spices in Indian curry but if all else fails, just make sure you at least have the curry, cumin, and hopefully coriander.

The cayenne takes the heat level up a notch in Indian Chicken Curry. Leave it out if you're sensitive to heat. Some ground curries are hot and some are mild. Go easy on the curry as well if you don't know and don't like spicy.

Want dairy free? Use coconut milk instead of heavy whipping cream.

Tryin' to up your veggie intake? Add some frozen peas or broccoli to this curry mixture when you add the chicken.

Don't like chicken thighs? Cool, use chicken breast instead but the breast will cook very fast compared to thighs.

What My Man Says

"This curry dish is really flavorful and pretty simple to make."

"Dicing the chicken thighs (9) took me longer than I expected, and as a result my prep time was around 45 minutes."

"Working with all the different spices is a cool sensory experience - they all have powerful smells and the different colors are very pretty and combine to make a rich ocher."

"I found that I really had to turn the temperature back up after I added the chicken to get everything back to a boil / simmer."

"We didn't have any Cilantro, so I omitted it but we did have some frozen peas that I added for a couple of minutes at the very end (turning the temperature up again). The end result was quite delicious and the sauce gets even thicker and richer the next day for the leftovers :-)"


  • Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or a deep, wide saucepan set over medium-high heat. Add the onions and stir to coat them with the oil. Spread them in an even layer and cook for 2 min. Stir well, rearrange in an even layer again, and cook for 2 min. the onions should have begun to brown at the edges. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are a rich brown, another 10 to 12 min. Lower the heat if necessary so the onions caramelize but don’t burn.
  • Meanwhile, put the yogurt in a small bowl, stirring until it’s creamy. Add the cornstarch and mix well.
  • Add the ginger, garlic, and chiles to the onions. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 2 min. so they meld with the onions. Add all the chicken thighs and cook, stirring occasionally, until they lose their raw color and begin to brown, 5 to 6 min. Lower the heat to medium low and add the coriander, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne. Cook for 2 min., stirring frequently and scraping the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the tomatoes and their juices, the yogurt mixture, the chopped cilantro, and the salt. Stir well, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 20 to 25 min. Remove from the heat and taste for salt.
  • To serve, sprinkle on the garam masala, transfer to a serving dish, and garnish with more chopped cilantro.

Make Ahead Tips

You can freeze this curry, in which case you shouldn’t add the garam masala and cilantro garnish until you’re ready to serve. Thaw the curry in the fridge and reheat over low heat. Then sprinkle with the garam masala and a little ground cumin, cover, and let sit for a few minutes to let the aroma infuse the curry. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with the chopped cilantro.

Classic Chicken Curry | Indian Chicken Curry Recipe

Classic chicken curry is the most integral part of our family meal. Our life would have been incomplete without this chicken curry which I have to share with you guys! If there is one Indian recipe which has thousands of versions, each being uniquely delicious on its own, then it has to be chicken curry! I believe every non-vegetarian Indian family has their very own chicken curry recipe which holds their family secret today I am here to reveal ours!

Our family favorite chicken curry has always been a part of any celebratory meal like birthdays or anniversaries. My own version of chicken curry is a fusion of my mum’s and my MIL’s and eventually I have experimented with spices and stuff. Finally, I have arrived at something which I can proudly call my best ever chicken curry and hence it is appearing here in our blog!

During my short trip to Greece couple of years back, I had realized that if there is any Indian dish which is popular abroad then it is definitely curry any curry for that matter. Chicken curry is the most universal of all curries and I strongly believe that one must have a fail-proof recipe of this mind-blowing dish in his/her repertoire! Chicken curry is such a friendly dish that it can be your savior when you have surprise guests coming over for dinner! It not only feeds a crowd but will please them immensely making you the star of the show!

I am sure that as you are reading this you might be comparing your own family chicken curry with mine, but hold on! Don’t compare as I am sure yours is as mind-blowing as mine! I am very sure every family does their chicken curry differently and that’s the beauty of it! The flagship recipe of our country has uncountable number of versions which can make it a cuisine in itself! Don’t you agree?

In my previous recipe of simple Bengali potato curry, I had mentioned about my mum’s lavish Sunday lunch and chicken curry was one of her Sunday specialties. Like any other curry, chicken curry also has the similar flavor base – onion, ginger, garlic and tomatoes. My mum used less amount of tomatoes which I have modified. Also, I love to use whole spices to temper the oil as they emanate a beautiful aroma making the chicken curry even more flavorful.

My personal twist on the classic chicken curry is the two types of onions I mean I used both sliced and pureed onion in the curry as this combination makes a great base for the gravy. And I must tell you that the gravy of this chicken curry is something to die for! It is simply incredible and anything will taste good with this miracle gravy – be it roti or rice or may be some fluffy butter naan if you want your dinner to be a little extra fancy! So this chicken curry is now passed from me to you do let me know how it turned out!

South Indian-Style Chicken Curry

Chicken curries come in many styles depending on where they're from. South Indian variations are rich in aromatic spices and inevitably evoke memories of tangy tastes, like sour kokum fruit and sweet-and-tangy tamarind fruit, in a mixture tempered by the smoothness of coconut cream. Although each region adds its own local ingredients, all chicken curries share the usage of yogurt, cream, or coconut milk to thicken the dish and temper down the spices.

This dish, while South Indian in origin, is a variation on a classic, with an emphasis on fragrant whole spices and a generous amount of delicious and silky gravy. For a more flavorful dish, we suggest using skinless bone-in chicken, but if chicken breast is all that you have on hand, use it. Just don't overcook it, as the pieces can dry out.

This South Indian chicken curry is a great dish for entertaining and, as with most South Indian delicacies, it goes really well with simple, plain basmati rice and vegetables.

Indian Chicken Curry

After many email exchanges, I finally met her in person. Reem is so sweet she came to support my cooking demo at Macy&rsquos and bought me a nice bouquet of flower.

Simply Reem is a blog about cooking, home/garden and more.

I simply adore Reem&rsquos homey recipes on Indian cuisine.

Today, she teaches us how to make Indian chicken curry with dried roasted spices, a family recipe that she learned from her mother.

Enjoy and don&rsquot forget to check out Simply Reem.

I want to start by thanking Bee for giving me opportunity to share my recipe on Rasa Malaysia.

Rasa Malaysia is an excellent blog which brought Asian food and cooking to a new platform.

I have been a sincere follower and fan of Bee and her beautiful space even before I started my blog.

Every craving of Asian food from Noodles to Laksa bought me here, a place where I could find it all and learn.

It is truly an honor for me to be here today.

For me there are few things as reassuring as a bowl of hot steamy curry dish with some rice or bread.

I remember no dinner in my parents home was complete without a curry dish it always faithfully made its way to the dinner table in some form or the other.

Every season has its own version of curry dishes to be enjoyed with your family and friends.

Even though curries are a part of me but for a very long time I feared making one of my own.

It wasn&rsquot so much the procedure or precision that kept me from simmering my own curry but rather a fear of not being able to live up to my own expectation.

Finally, after a long wait I did make curry and I have never looked back since.

Before we move on let me tell you that the word curry itself is one of the most misunderstood culinary term.

Curry literary means a &ldquodish with a sauce,&rdquo curry is not a dish by itself. You add the name of the key ingredient before curry and voila you have the name of the dish&hellipChicken Curry, Mixed Vegetable Curry, Lamb Curry and so on.

Adding a spoon or two of store bought curry powder to a dish is far from anything authentic.

A true home-style Indian curry is a beautiful symphony of simple flavors and spices.

They are not only delicious but really healthy nothing like the ones you are usually served at restaurants loaded with fat and spices.

Simmering gently, bringing all the flavors from herbs, spices and vegetable/meat/chicken/fish together in a form of a delightful dish, curries can be a part of any meal making it more delicious and enjoyable.

Moving on, the recipe of &ldquoIndian Chicken Curry with Dry-Roasted Spices&rdquo I am sharing today is a delightful and absolutely delicious chicken curry you will find in many Indian kitchens.

It is really easy to make the addition of roasted spices at the end of the cooking makes it even more delicious and add a wonderful rich color as well as divine aroma to the dish.

Once more Thanks Bee for having me here.

Easy Indian-Style Butter Chicken Curry Recipe Notes


Many recipes for butter chicken call for long lists of spices. The flavor of this dish comes mainly from garam masala, which is an Indian “all-purpose” spice blend. Every Indian family has their own recipe and grinds whole spices to make their mix. Luckily, you can find garam masala in just about any spice aisle, or at a local Asian or Indian grocery store. I prefer the ones at the Indian store as they more closely resemble what my mom and grandma make at home.

A brand I love is this one that’s available on Amazon. It has 15 different spices and includes the more “exotic” ones that my family typically adds like green and black cardamom, black cumin, dried musk melon, and fenugreek. Because so much flavor comes from this spice blend, it’s really hard to create this dish without it.

I use cayenne in this recipe, because it’s what I usually have on hand, and also because I’ve never seen a traditional Indian red chili powder outside of a Indian grocery store. (It IS available on Amazon) It can be easily confused with “chili” powder – which is a mix of spices like cumin, paprika, garlic and onion that is used to make Texas-style chili. Indian-style red chili powder is much hotter than cayenne and also comes in a much bolder red color. It’s made of finely ground Kashmiri chilis. If you happen to have it on hand, I’d add less than I call for in my recipe below.

Yogurt Substitution

I usually use yogurt, but I’ve tried this recipe with sour cream (when I didn’t have any yogurt on hand) and it came out delicious!

Garlic-ginger paste

I will often make a paste of garlic and ginger to use in Indian recipes. You can also buy a bottled ginger-garlic paste from the Indian grocery store. I think it makes recipes go a bit more quickly, but it’s absolutely not a necessity. If you don’t happen to have this on hand, just use equal parts of ginger and garlic. If you need 2 tablespoons of garlic-ginger paste, just use 1 tablespoon each of minced ginger and garlic.

Cream Substitution

I prefer the taste of this dish with half-and-half. My mom makes it with heavy cream, which is delicious, but also super rich. You can also stir in a bit of yogurt, or use coconut milk for a dairy-free version. If I use coconut milk, I omit the 1/4 tsp of sugar in the recipe as coconut milk has a natural sweetness already.

To serve

This Easy Indian-Style Butter Chicken Curry is fantastic with hot basmati rice. You can also serve it with fresh roti or naan to soak up the yummy sauce. If you have an Instant Pot, that is my favorite way to cook basmati rice. Take 1 cup of basmati rice and rinse it three times until all the water runs clear. Place in Instant Pot, and add in 1 cup of water, and cook on manual pressure for 6 minutes. Let it naturally release for 10 minutes before opening the pot. The rice cooks perfectly! I think it’s better this way than in a rice cooker. It’s always equal parts rice to water. 2 cups of basmati would need 2 cups of water, etc.
