Tomato and yogurt chicken curry

Tomato and Yogurt Chicken Curry


  • 1 medium chopped onion
  • 3 choped cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chopped ginger
  • A generous handful of chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons of garam masala (or the curry powder of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 2 chopped tomatoes (I use canned ones)
  • 2 large chicken things, cut in 4 or 5 pieces each.
  • Gee, butter or vegetable oil
  • Salt
  1.  Gently fry the onions, garlic, ginger and mint in a ghee for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the garam masala and turmeric and stir a little bit.
  3. Add yogurt and tomatoes and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add chicken and cook until it’s tender. If the sauce is too watery (not all tomatoes and yogurt have the same water content), let it simmer uncovered until it thickens.
  5. Serve with rice, chapatis or dinner rolls.

This recipe tastes much better the day after.
