Mom style chicken curry

I am very excited about this post. I am currently at Mumbai on a vacation and visiting my family. This is the only time in the last 6 months that i have come to Mumbai and i plan to spend the time watching my mother in law and mom cook food for me. This weekend my Mother in law cooked a special treat for us. Her famous chicken curry. She is a great cook and the recipe that she showed me is very simple to make. I am sure that i will treasure this recipe with me and I hope you will enjoy it as well

  • Onion
  • Green chillies
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Coriander leaves
  • Turmeric powder
  • Coriander seeds
  • Red chillies
  • Pepper
  • Cloves
  • Salt
  • Oil
  • Curry leaves


  1. Make a green paste of ginger, garlic, coriander leaves, onion and green chillies and keep it aside.
  2. Heat oil in pan, add coriander seeds, chopped onion and red chillies. Make it into a brown paste by adding some water to it, and keep it aside.
  3. Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onions and salt. Saute till the onion turns slightly brown.
