Garlic-8 Cloves
Tomatoes-3 (chopped)
(Onion + Ginger + Garlic + Tomatoes blended and made into afine paste)
Coriander powder-2 teaspoon
Turmeric-1 teaspoon
Garam Masala-1teaspoon

Tip: If you can'tget ready-made garam masala mixturefrom a nearby Indian store, you can make yours by using 1 black cardamom, 3green cardamoms, 4 cloves, and 1 inch cinnamon-all ground together for thisdish.

Red chilli powder-1/4 teaspoon (enough only to add flavourand not to make it spicy)
Cumin seeds-1/2 teaspoon
Potatoes-2 (skinned and cut into big pieces)
Cooking Oil-3 tablespoon
Ghee (Clarifiedbutter)-1 tablespoon
Water-3 cups
Sugar-1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste


In a pressure cooker, add the oil and the put it on yourheat source.

As the oil turns hot, add the cumin seeds and let itsplutter.

Immediately add the Onion + Ginger + Garlic + Tomatoes finepaste.

Stir well till the paste starts giving off a nice aroma andyou can see the oil ooze out from the sides.

Add the chicken and stir well.

Add the coriander powder, turmeric, garam masala and red chilli powder.

Cook the chicken till all the water evaporates and the chickenis dry.

Add the potatoes.

Stir well again and add the salt and the sugar.

Now, add the water.

Close the lid of the pressure cooker with weight and let itcome to full pressure (i.e. when the weight lifts and there is a whistlingsound).

Immediately reduce the heat (to SIM on a gas stove) and letthe chicken cook for 5 more minutes before turning off the heat source.

Let the cooker cool down on its own.

As the curry comes to a boil, gently add the egg stirringcontinuously.

Remove the dish from fire.

Your thick chicken curry is ready.
