Almond and Yogurt Chicken Curry

Almond and Yogurt Chicken Curry

The picture looks awful but it is a rich curry worth trying. It’s loosely based on a traditional dish called murgh badami.

  • One chicken (or four chicken thighs) cut in pieces.
  • 3 onions, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 slice of ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 25 chopped almonds
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • Ghee or butter
  • Salt
  1. Brown onions in ghee or butter.
  2. Add chicken, garlic, ginger, salt, chili powder and turmeric, and cook over medium heat for 3 or 4 minutes.
  3. Add garam masala and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add yogurt and keep cooking for a minute.
  5. Add chopped almonds, put the lid on and keep cooking until chicken is tender.

Tips&Tricks:

  • This dish will look a lot better using ground almonds.
  • You can finish it adding some cream but I believe it’s already quite rich.
