North Indian Chicken Curry |  with a Twist

It has been a Chicken Marathon for me these past 4 months. This is my North Indian Chicken Curry | with a Twist.  I have not cooked so much in my whole life! Every second day, I try to conjure a new recipe and I think I have curated quite a few unique ones. Chicken is versatile light meat it can be flavoured by the dish in which it is cooked. Even the bones can be turned into a basic chicken stock or soup. It can be prepared in numerous ways—roasted, broiled, grilled, or poached, stews, and biryanis—and with an assortment of seasonings, toppings, and sauces. Chicken is a staple in virtually every culture’s cuisine.

How to cook North Indian Chicken Curry | with a Twist

Having cooked spicy curries and chicken, I have to hold myself back while seasoning and cook up creamy gravies. My grandsons do not eat very spicy food. That is how this North Indian Chicken Curry| with a Twist turned out. Easy as can be it has the basic, onion, ginger-garlic paste, tomatoes sans the masala bhunaoing. The twist in this curry is I added 1 tablespoon of corn starch to a cup of yoghurt. This made a thick satiny smooth gravy without masalas and regular gravy. Topped it with a dollop of cream to give it a rich finish.
