  1. Heat oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add chicken, onion, and ginger garlic paste. Season with curry powder, cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, bay leaves, cloves, red pepper flakes, black peppercorns, and coriander seeds. Cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. At this point, gravy will be runny; if you want to thicken, remove lid, and cook until liquid is reduced.

This curry had a very good taste...however, next time, I will crush the coriander seeds before using them. Every bite, i would bite into a seed and the flavor would be too strong. Also, next t...

Great recipe and a sure winner. Recommended modifications: use fresh cilantro and add coconut milk (lite or regular) and chicken bouillion for additional flavour. Enjoy!

Better than the Indian Restaurants! Great Recipe!

Whomever said "spicy yet bland" was very much correct. Not inedible, but I certainly will not cook this again.
