I can eat chicken curry in any mood, any day. Chicken was almost regular to our home. My father and I are true chicken lover and that's why my mom used make very plain and simple chicken curry on weekdays. Sometime when she was in hurry, she used to throw everything in a pan and came up with this tasty chicken curry. I also heard that villagers often make this kind of curry which needs no recipe, no attention, but still a winner !
- 1 kg of with bone chicken pieces.
- 1 big onion, sliced.
- 2 cloves of garlic, sliced.
- 1 inch ginger, chopped.

- 3 Tablespoons of mustard oil.
- 1 potato, cut into 4.
- Half cup of warm water.
Heat the oil in a pan.
Now add all the spice powder in the warm oil. Saute for a minute in low flame. Do not burn the powder.
Place onion, ginger, garlic, green chilies and tomato in that spicy oil. Bring the heat to medium.
Add the washed chicken pieces. Give it a good mix on high flame for 5 minutes.
