Tomato Chicken

Tito had a bad cold with mild fever this weekend..and was not feeling like eating anything.To make something tangy to tickle his taste bud, added lot of tomatoes in a regular chicken curry. Needless to say, he had his dinner peacefully without making any fuss…


  • Chicken – 500 gms
  • Tomatoes – 3 pcs – Roughly Chopped
  • Onion – 2 – sliced finely
  • Garlic Paste – 1 tsp
  • Ginger Paste – 1 tsp
  • Green Chilli – 3
  • Bayleaf – 3
  • Garam Masala(Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove)
  • Kasmiri chilli powder – 1 tbsp
  • Mustard Oil – 4 tbsp
  • Salt and Turmeric powder – as required
  • Sugar – a pinch

Heat Oil in a kadai. Add bay leaves and whole garam masalas and let it crackle.
Reduce the heat and add onion and green chilli. Fry for some time.

Add ginger garlic paste and fry for some time. Now add chopped tomatoes and stir it for some time over very low heat so that the tomato is mashed.

Add chilli powder, salt and turmeric powder and fry the masalas till it releases nice aroma. You may have to sprinkle some water to avoid the masala from burning. Now add the chicken pieces and stir to coat the chicken pieces with masalas.

Lower the heat and simmer with the lid on. Chicken will release a lot of water. Remove the lid occasionally and stir the chicken.

When the water evaporates completely, add a cup of hot water and boil with the lid on for some 10-15 minutes till the chicken is done.

Increase the heat, sprinkle a pinch of sugar, mix well and let the water evaporates completely and oil comes out of the chicken.

Tasty tomato chicken is ready. have it with roti.
