Kadai chicken recipe is a popular chicken gravy of north part of India. Kadai chicken is a mild chicken gravy cooked with crunchy capsicum and onions. The main flavour and aroma comes from homemade kadai masala powder.
Heat a deep sauce pan on medium heat. Add oil to heat up. Add cubed onions and saute for 2 minutes. Onions will become translucent then add half of kadai masala powder. Mix together.
Add red chillies and ginger garlic paste (I used grated ginger garlic). Saute for a minute or till the raw aroma goes.
Add chicken and saute for 2-3 minutes.
Add chopped tomatoes and cover the lid. Cook for 3 minutes or until tomatoes are mushy.
Add green capsicum and saute for 2 minutes. Add water to adjust consistency. Let the kadai chicken cook for 5 minutes on low heat with the lid on.
Then sprinkle kasuri methi, garam masala, remaining kadai masala powder and yogurt. Mix everything.
Add chopped coriander leaves. Let it simmer for 2 minutes.
Switch off the gas. When kadai chicken cool down, consistency will be thickened.
