Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground chicken (chicken mince)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated or minced
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped (adjust to taste)

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala

  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup water or chicken broth
  • Salt, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
  • Cooked rice or naan, for serving

Instructions:

1. Sauté the Aromatics:

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add cumin seeds and let them sizzle for a few seconds until fragrant.
  3. Add finely chopped onion and sauté until translucent, about 5-6 minutes.
  4. Stir in minced garlic, grated ginger, and green chilies. Sauté for another 2 minutes until fragrant.

2. Cook the Ground Chicken:

  1. Add ground chicken (chicken mince) to the skillet. Break up any clumps with a spoon and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Add Spices:

5. Simmer the Curry:

  1. Pour in water or chicken broth to create the desired consistency of the curry. Bring to a simmer.
