Chicken Korma

Chicken Korma ( Chicken curry - Hyderabadi style)

This is the most simplest recipe for chicken and also the tastiest at the same time. It reminds me of my mom. I still cannot make this korma like her. She makes the most amazing Chicken korma ever. I love you Mom!.

So here is the recipe. Enjoy!.


1 Chicken cut into medium pieces ( mine were 16 pieces)
Red Chili Powder - 2 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tblsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 2tsp
Curd (yogurt) - 1 kg
green chillies - if required
kothmir (Coriander leaves) - 1 cup
pudina (Mint leaves ) - handful
Lemon - 1
Garam masala powder - 1tsp
Fried onions - 1 cup
oil - 1cup (requires more oil for added taste)


Wash and clean the chicken pieces. Now add Redchilli powder, Turmeric powder , Ginger garlic paste, salt ,curd and fried onions to it.

Mix well. Heat oil in a pan. add the above mixture. mix well till the curd is thick and starts oozing oil. Now add 2 cups water and cover. Let the chicken cook till it softens(this will be very Quick - like 10 minutes). Now add juice of 1 lemon and corriander leaves and mint leaves. Now is the time to taste it and check for salt and add green chillies if required. Add the garam masala powder. Cover again and cook on low flame for 10 minutes. The mouth watering chicken korma is ready!!
