How To Make Tandoori Chicken Curry
The one ingredient that make this curry truly exceptional is chicken thighs. It’s definitely the best part of chicken to make delicious curry. When cooked, it turns very tender and succulent making the dish downright delicious. However, you can use other cuts as well, make sure you adjust the cooking times accordingly.
The second main ingredient in this recipe is obviously the tandoori paste. I am using my favorite tandoori paste recipe made from scratch with aromatic spices, fresh herbs and yogurt. The aroma and flavor of this paste is sensational. Usually, I use this paste to marinate chicken, meat and vegetables prior to grilling them to tender perfection. But this time, I decided to flavor the base sauce of the tandoori chicken curry with this paste. Believe it or not, this is one of the best curries I have ever made. Beyond delicious!
Ok, now let me walk through the cooking process. I started with browning the chicken thighs with a little salt and pepper. Remove this from the pan before you make the sauce. Sauté some onions until they are browned followed by frying tandoori paste and tomato paste.
Once it’s lightly sautéed in oil, stir in cream and water. Don’t forget to season. I like to add in a generous amount of cream to make this tandoori chicken curry creamy and rich. Let this simmer for 4-5 minutes. The browned chicken thighs goes back into the pan with a touch of coriander (cilantro) leaves. At this stage, cook chicken until it’s no longer pink.
Deliciously good tandoori spiced chicken curry to serve with your favorite parathas, naans and even rice.
