  • First Marinate the chicken with salt,red chilli powder, turmeric powder n a spoon of ginger garlic paste n keep aside till we make other arrangements for the curry.
  • Now chop the Onion,green chillies n tomatoes.
  • Make paste with all the masala paste ingredients listed above…add little water in middle n make it to fine paste…this paste is the very essential part of this curry.
  • Now heat the skillet with 5 to 6 spoons of oil…we are not going to add water in this curry,so the oil should be enough which gives good taste for non veg curries.
  • When the oil is hot enough add cumin seeds  n mustard seeds , when the mustard seeds starts spluttering add chopped onions,green chillies and  curry leaves..saute the onions till they become transparent ( half cooked),now add the chopped tomatoes n saute for a minute till r cooked , now add the marinated chicken and the masala paste which we grinded before.. increase the flame to high for 3 to 4 minutes n cover the skillet with lid…so that  the water from the chicken will be oozed out  due to high pressure…take care not to burn the chicken.
  • After  3 to 4 burn minutes..when u open the lid…u  can see the water that is oozed out…now reduce the flame to sim n let it cook in low flame till the curry is done…stir the curry occasionally…when the curry is done , oil floats on the top n the chicken piece also become too soft n tasty..even the gravy tastes awesome..adjust the spices if necessary …
  • Sprinkle little garam masala powder in the curry before offing the flame..Waite for 2 minutes n off the flame n garnish with coriander leaves if required.

    Hello mam, I don’t see you using the tomato in the above chicken curry. I heard that if we cook chicken in tomato, the pieces become hard.. Pls update your recipe.. Thanks

  • siri:

    Hi Divya..
    Thanks for stopping and letting me know my mistake..i updated my post ..thanks a lot again.. 🙂
    As u heard that tomato makes the chicken hard may not fully true from my experience..
    adding tomato to chicken curry is very bring out very nice taste to the curry n as u heard it wont make the chciken hard…iam not saying about any other recipes..but in this curry, the basic andhra chiken curry , tomato plays a major role..but we should not add more tomatoes..for eg: for half kg chicken 1 tomato is enough..the sourness of the tomato should not be felt in chicken..
    Thanks divya…keep posting ur comments…

  • Ash:


    I made this for lunch today, and it came out SO good! Thanks a lot! It’s very simple, but the flavors are complex and interesting. I paired it with chapatis, and the output was pretty delicious! After the chicken was cooked, I added a sprinkling of pepper powder (that’s the only different thing I did, from your recipe) and it lifted all the other flavors to a new dimension! Also, I recently saw this video on youtube, where I learnt that adding pepper to wherever turmeric is added improves the goodness of turmeric by over 2000 times!! Isn’t that amazing?!

    Anyways, thank you for this recipe!


  • Ramulu:

    Enjoyed making the curry. This is the first time I have cooked chicken on my own. I am afraid I have not done a good job of it. Learning points for me. The chicken got burnt during the high flame stage. The gravy is looking very dark and not like in the picture. Perhaps the marinade was not proportionate. The chicken is slightly hard, perhaps over cooked. The gravy tastes slightly bitter. I thought it was from the kaskas, so I added a spoon of sugar. No change.

    Hope my daughter likes it.

    Thank you for posting the recipe. It is very useful for new cooks like me.
