Sindhi Chicken Curry Recipe and Easy Indian Cooking Cookbook Review

My husband and I enjoy Indian cuisine, although I’ve only attempted to prepare it a handful of times.  Indian cuisine is exciting and mysterious to many. It has been a little intimidating for me as well with so many unknowns. I received the Easy Indian Cooking cookbook to facilitate this post.

Sindhi Chicken Curry Recipe

This is the quintessential north Indian-style chicken curry with onion and tomato-based gravy. It is a simple home-style version, but the amazing flavors and bright, appetizing color make it suitable for company as well.  I was given permission to post the Sindhi Chicken Curry Recipe from the Easy Indian Cooking Cookbook.  The recipe for Sindhi Chicken Curry is found on page 102. It looks amazing and I can’t wait to surprise my husband with this dish.

Sindhi Chicken Curry Recipe Ingredients

  • 12 skinless bone-in chicken thighs, about 4 lbs
  • 1 c plain nonfat yogurt, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp  oil
  • 2 cups finely chopped onions
  • 1 tbsp minced peeled gingerroot
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced green chiles
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 11/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric
  • 3/4 tsp  cayenne pepper
  • 1   can (28 oz) tomatoes, chopped, including juice
  • 1/2 c cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 11/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/4 c cilantro, chopped, divided

Sindhi Chicken Curry Recipe Instructions

  1. Rinse chicken and pat dry.
  2. Stir together yogurt and cornstarch until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until beginning to color, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and sauté until dark golden, 10 to 12 minutes longer.
  4. Stir in ginger, garlic and chile. Sauté for 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high. Add chicken and brown well, 6 to 8 minutes.

Serves 8

TIP: This dish freezes very well in an airtight container for up to 4 months. Thaw in refrigerator overnight. Reheat on low heat. Sprinkle with garam masala and cumin powder. Cover and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes to allow the aroma of the spices to infuse the curry. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with chopped cilantro before serving.
