Chicken Masala

on December 28, 2014

This one’s a quick and easy recipe, I usually make this with roti’s as it so quick and minimizes the time in the kitchen. I kinda invented this recipe on my own 😛 by adding all the things available in my kitchen shelves !! Sometimes it works, isn’t it 🙂 Well, most of the working women like me will definitely agree on this !! So next time you wonder, what to cook for dinner after a tired day, This recipe comes to your rescue !! 🙂 It goes well with steamed rice too.


  • Chicken – 500 gms (Boneless)
  • Lemon – 1
  • Olive oil – 1 tbsp
  • Onion – 1 finely chopped
  • Tomato – 1 finely chopped
  • Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tbsp
  • Turmeric powder – a pinch
  • Red Chilli powder – 2 tsp
  • Coriander powder – 2 tsp
  • Chaat masala : 1 tsp
  • Green chillies : 2 (slitted)
  • Pepper : 1 tbsp
  • Curry leaves : a few
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander leaves – 1 tbsp chopped finely (i loved loads of coriander leaves in my dishes, however u can minimize this)


  • Cut the chicken into 1 inch size pieces and marinate it with a juice of 1 lime, half the qty of ginger garlic paste and 1 tsp of red chilli powder for about 30 min.
  • Heat oil in a pan, saute the onions till slightly golden brown. Now add the remaining ginger garlic paste and green chillies, and saute for a minute more.
  • Add the tomatoes, and cook till the tomatoes are mushy. Now add the remaining chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and mix well.
  • Now add the marinated chicken, and toss till the chicken is mixed nicely with masala. Mix in the pepper powder and continue to saute.
  • Now add 1.5 cups of water and salt, cover and cook till the chicken is done. Check the salt, Turn off the heat. Sprinkle the chaat masala and curry leaves and mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with steamed rice or roti’s.
