* 3 + 3 tbs oil, or ghee
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 3 cloves garlic, chopped
* 1" piece ginger, chopped
* 1 green chilli, chopped (add more if you like it hot)
* 1 tsp. chilli powder
* 2 tsp. ground coriander powder
* 2 tsp. tomato puree (paste)
* 1 tsp. salt
* 1 green pepper (bell), chopped

* 1/2 tsp. dried fenugreek leaves (methi leaves)
* Handful fresh coriander leaves, chopped


1. Heat 3 Tbs of Oil or Ghee in a saucepan, fry Onions for about 3 or 4 minutes, then add Chicken, Garlic and Ginger and stir-fry until Chicken is light brown.
2. Add Chilli Powder, Green Chilli, Ground Coriander, Tomato Puree, Salt and 2 Tbs Water, continue stir-frying until Oil separates from the mixture.
3. Add about 100 ml Water* and simmer for about 20 mins, or until Chicken is tender. Stirring occasionally.
4. Heat remaining 3 Tbs Oil or Ghee in a separate frying pan and stir-fry the chopped Green Pepper for 2 mins, then add sliced Mushrooms and stir-fry for a further 2 mins.
5. Add fried Pepper and Mushroom to Chicken and cook for a further 10 mins.
6. Add Garam Masala, Dried Fenugreek and Fresh Coriander, stir-fry until quite dry.
7. *The amount of Water can be adjusted to suit, if the Chicken mixture is sticking to the pan during cooking time add a little more. The end result should be quite a dry Curry.

Question Author
how does garam masala come, from a bottle or dried powder?
Hi terambulan

Garam masala is in powder form, you can buy it in small plastic bags from any Asian shop or the big supermarkets.
It is a mixture of, ground black pepper, cardamoms, cloves, cinnamon, star anise and possibly more.
It is on the same basis of Chinese 5 spice but with different spices.
