How to Make Chicken in Peanut Curry

  • Clean and chop the chicken.
  • Marinate it for at least 10 hours in a mixture of curd, salt, and black pepper.
  • Make a paste of the onions, green chillies, coriander, and ginger.
  • Grind the peanuts into a paste separately.
  • Saute the green paste in butter (could replace it with oil, if desired).
  • When the paste begins to turn golden, add the peanut paste and one tablespoon of the curd from the marinade.
  • Stir well to make a thick curry.
  • Now add the chicken pieces, carefully wiping away all excess curd.
  • Cover and cook on medium heat. It will not take more than 15 minutes for the chicken to cook.
  • When the chicken is done, add the remaining curd from the marinade; bring to a quick boil and take off heat.
  • Garnish it with some coriander and slivers of ginger.
  • Serve hot with kulchas.
