Chicken Curry Indian Style Recipe

This chicken curry Indian style recipe is just what you need if you want to cheer yourself up on a chilly evening. The chicken and vegetables combine beautifully with the curry spices and the overall effect is fantastic. Serve this with white fluffy rice, naan bread or whatever your heart desires.

In a restaurant you may request your curry mild, medium or spicy, and hope the chef’s version of ‘mild’ for example, is the same as yours! We have all been there, asking for a mild dish, and it arrives and blows your head off. Well, in this chicken curry Indian style recipe, it is up to you to add the spices, so you can choose how spicy (or otherwise) you would like it to be.

Perhaps you are not used to eating curries. If you aren’t sure what to expect, then just imagine chicken served in a warm, nice tasting sauce. Make it mild (don’t add too much curry powder) and taste it as you go, so if you feel it needs more flavor towards the end you can add some more.

Why Indian Recipes are So Beloved

Indian food is one of the most popular cuisines, and although other cuisines do feature spices, nothing tastes quite like true Indian food. And no, Indian food is not just about ‘curries’ and the like. There are plenty of wonderful dishes to choose from, ranging from mild and simple to spicy and complex. This chicken curry Indian style recipe can be made as spicy or mild as you wish.

Whether you are cooking in the manner of many Indians, making a vegetarian dish (a lot of Indians are non-carnivores) or using fish, seafood, poultry and meat in your dish, the typical Indian flavorings will set off the flavor of the whole meal and you will find such recipes to be superbly well balanced and full of amazing flavor.
