Hello and welcome to my channel , April Flora Tahara .
Today , I'm gonna share with you my recipe for Dali chicken , a chicken curry in yogurt gravy .
It's a very easy chicken curry that even beginners can make .
All you need are some powdered spices , yogurt , and ginger and garlic paste .
So let's see how it is done .
The first and most important step of this curry is to marinate the chicken .
Here I have around 500 g of chicken .
So we'll marinate it with some spices .
Here , I have a teaspoon each of salt turmeric powder , red chili powder , a tablespoon each of masala powder , coriander powder and half a teaspoon of Cuban powder .
That's optional .
We'll also take 1.5 tablespoons of garlic paste and a tablespoon of ginger paste .
We just give it a mix and then we'll add the whole thing into the chicken .
Now with my hand , I'm gonna coat the chicken pieces really very well with the spices .
So we need to massage the chicken so that it absorbs all the spices .
And here I have the most important ingredient that is a cup of thick plain yogurt that is curd or the so we'll just beat it really well and add it onto the chicken and mix it in .
So we cover it and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator .
Overnight marination would give the best results because yogurt is a meat tenderizer and you will get very butter soft chicken .
Alright , the chicken has been marinating for about 30 minutes now .
So now it's time to cook the chicken for that .
You need a white pan like this .
It's heating over medium heat .
One more thing about this curry is it is oil free .
You may add on two tablespoons of oil if you wish , but I'm gonna make it oil free .
So just onto the hot pan , we'll add the chicken along with all the marinade .
So now we'll let the chicken cook over medium to high heat until all the raw smell of the spices and ginger and garlic is gone .
So it's been about 15 minutes .
Now you can see that the gravy has completely dried up .
I was stirring it occasionally .
So you can see that even though I had not added a single drop of oil , the fat from the chicken and yogurt has been released and separated from the gravy .
So this is what we were looking for .
So at this point I'll throw in some sliced green chilies that gives a very nice flavor .
You can add it as per your taste .
I have added here three green chilies and half a teaspoon of black pepper powder for extra heat .
Although that's optional .
And here I have half a teaspoon of Kasuri .
Me that is dry .
Rely , we just crush it and add it .
It gives a very nice flavor , but you can leave it out if you cannot find it .
I just mix it in really well , I had not added any water on up till now .
So now I'll add on 1 to 1.5 cups of water depending on the amount of gravy you want .
So now we can check for salt .
I had not covered the chicken up till now .
At this point , we will cover it and let it cook completely .
It may take around 5 to 7 minutes or medium to high heat .
Alright , the chicken curry is all done and the chicken has completely cooked and the pieces are really very tender and flavorful because of the marination .
Now , I have switched off the stew .
We garnish it with some coriander leaves or cilantro .
So here is the final look of the yogurt chicken .
So that was my recipe for the chicken or yogurt chicken .
It tastes best with some steamed rice , but you can also serve it with any of the Indian breads .
