Oil Free Chicken Curry!

Hey you guys! Ok, for those of you'll who've been wondering why my blog was up for a week without any recipes, I do have a good excuse...You see, I am based in Dubai, but my job requires me to travel sometimes. So currently I am in Canada, and was getting my bearings straightened out. But now I'm good to go! So, here goes my first recipe. This one's dedicated to my dear man, A, who stood by me when I came up with the idea of a blog. It's also for all those of my friends and family who believed in me when i told them about my idea. So Smi, Renu, Erin, this one's for u guys too. Most importantly, the people who helped me create this blog, my lil cousins, Samantha and Shaiba. So, that's it for my lil speech.tee hee! On with the recipe. 

As the name suggests, I have created this with absolutely zero oil, trust me! And you know what, it actually tasted good. So here we are...


  • 1 kilo chicken, cut into medium pieces, cleaned properly. i recommend you wash it with salt and vinegar for that extra "glow".
  • 3 medium sized onions, chopped finely
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of ginger garlic paste. If using normal ginger and garlic, a medium sized ginger and approx 4-5 garlic cloves crushed using a grinder or a mortar and pestle.
  • 4 chilies, slit in half
  • 2 tomatoes chopped in small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon coriander powder
  • 2 tablespoons red chilly powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garam masala powder
  • 1 cup curd. For me a cup would mean about 4 tablespoons. Those of you'll who love curd, go ahead and use 5. Bear in mind the curd should not be too sour.
  • Salt to taste.
  • Coriander leaves to garnish

In a saucepan, combine all the ingredients in the order mentioned above, except for the coriander leaves, and cook on a medium flame for approx 35 minutes, or till the chicken is done. Tada, oil free chicken curry is ready! Garnish generously with coriander leaves.
