Peanut chicken Curry

Hello friends.

Happy Food filled Sunday to you all.

Just today morning I was searching for a chicken curry recipe that would be quick and easy yet tasty. Wanted to slurp it up with rice and then have a good afternoon siesta post lunch I wanted to make it thick, less spicy and oily. Hmmm.... Was that asking for too much in one dish?? No way!!
Easy peasy!! Finally Sujata and myself both racked our brains and decided to use peanuts in the gravy with a whole lot of other ingredients. The end result was this.

Peanut chicken curry

The dish that I made is to be enjoyed with rice, naan or roti. And I was  very happy with the distinct flavor of peanut in the curry. The gravy turned out just the way I planned it. So now check out my peanut chicken curry. 


  • Half kg chicken
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 tomatoes- finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 
  • 1/2 tsp Red chili powder 
  • Half cup roasted peanuts 
  • 1/2 cup cream- curd mixture
  • 2 tsp coriander powder 
  • Salt - to taste
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder
  • Curry leaves - few
  • 1 large potato 
  • 1 tbsp oil 
  • Mint for garnish 


1. First wash the chicken well and then add some turmeric powder to it, keep this aside.

2. Peel the onion and chop it into small pieces.  Now the easy part. In a blender, add chopped onions and green chilies

3. In a dry grinder blend the peanuts to make a smooth paste. Add little water if you wish.

4. Take a pressure cooker, add oil and curry leaves, let it splutter. 

5. Now add the onion paste, ginger garlic paste and mix well. 

6. Add the peanut powder and roast it for 2-3 minutes.

7. Now add the chicken, cut potato, grated tomatoes, dry spices and salt. Stir it well and let it not burn at the bottom.  

 8. Add 1/2 cup of water, mix well, close the pressure cooker with lid and cook it for 3 whistle.

9. Open the lid and keep back on medium flame. Add the curd/ cream mixture and let gravy thicken for two minutes. 

10. Serve it piping hot with rice or roti.

I loved the flavour of peanuts in this dish and of course a Bawa needs potatoes too in every dish. You can avoid it if you dont want the aloos.

Yummy yummy for your tummy
