Now , while you're here , please be sure to subscribe to my channel and we're gonna get started on how to make the best chicken curry .
The first thing we need to do is to season the chicken or we're gonna do this by adding thyme , garlic and boon powder to clean chicken pieces .
I'm using a combination of legs , thighs and wings .
Once the chicken is nicely coated with the seasoning , we're gonna then place it in the refrigerator for at least four hours .
Now that the chicken has had time to marinade , we're gonna start by making a curry paste .
We're gonna add curry powder , kamaal and Jiro also known as cumin to a small bowl with a little bit of green season mix and a little bit of water and then we're gonna stir it together to form a paste .
Next , we're gonna add oil to a pot over medium heat .
And once the oil is hot , we're gonna add over curry paste and fry it for approximately 4 to 5 minutes .
Frying the spices enhances the natural flavors of the spice .
So it's important not to skip this step .
The curry will develop a darker richer color as it fries .
This is exactly what we're looking for .
If the paste becomes too dry , just add a little bit of water just about a tablespoon .
Now , we're gonna add the seasoned chicken to the curry paste .
We're gonna stir this to coat it well and let it cook in its own juices for about 15 to 20 minutes .
Do not add any liquid at this point .
The chicken will release its own natural juices as it cooks and that is exactly what we want .
Once the chicken has cooked for about 15 minutes , we're gonna add chopped onions and a bay leaf and we're gonna stir the chicken to release it from the bottom of the pot and cook it for an additional 2 to 3 minutes .
Next , we're gonna add potato that's been peeled and sliced into smaller pieces .
And then we're gonna add enough water to cover the chicken and the potato go in there with a spoon and nestle the potato right in between the chicken just to be sure that it's covered by the liquid .
Now , we're gonna bring it to a boil .
Then we're gonna cover the pot and reduce the heat to low and allow it to simmer , let it cook until the chicken is completely cooked and the potato is tender .
The sauce is also gonna begin to reduce and thicken .
This should take anywhere from about 15 to 20 minutes .
Now , I'm gonna add salt to taste .
Keep in mind that the chicken was seasoned with pow , which tends to be a bit salty .
So just add salt sparingly .
Next , we're gonna add freshly chopped scallion just to add a brightness to the dish .
This is what you're looking for .
A big rich stew , tender potatoes .
The chicken is cooked perfectly through .
This is great when served with rice or roti .
