When I recently told some friends about her magical concoction they were curious and wanted the recipe. I believe that all good things should be shared whenever possible, and so does my mommy. When I asked her for permission to share her recipe she did not hesitate to say, "Yes." So she told me how she makes it and I stored it in my phone. I then made it myself. It was close to the taste of hers, but definitely not the same. That's because hers has mommy's magical touch, which cannot be duplicated. And so I share with you my Mommy-inspired Chicken Curry. The actual perfect recipe cannot be duplicated unless my mommy comes to cook for you and adds her magical touch. This is why I call it mommy-inspired.
The recipe below is how I made it. You can change the amount of chicken or use dark meat. You can also adjust the amount of spices to suit your taste. I like it medium spicy.
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
1 onion, chopped
oil (one turn of the pan)
1/4 cup curry powder
4 teaspoons garam masala
1 clove garlic, minced
2 wiri wiri peppers (or whichever peppers your prefer)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tomato, diced
Sprinkle of ground cumin
Salt to taste (a little goes a long way)
Water - enough to cover the chicken
1. Fry the chicken with salt and onions. Add oil if you are using white meat.
2. Add curry powder, garam masala, garlic, and tomato paste. Let it fry until dry.
3. Add enough water to cover the chicken.
4. Cover pan. Let it simmer on low.
5. Add tomato.
6. Sprinkle with ground cumin.
7. Serve with white rice or Indian bread.
