Chicken, Mushroom and Peppers Dry Curry

Print  Friendly and PDF
This is a super quick curry to make when one is hard-pressed for time. I make this very often and eat it with brown rice. Lean protein from chicken and Vitamins B and C from mushrooms and peppers respectively along with the good Carb from brown rice makes for a substantial meal.
  • 4 chicken thighs, skinned
  • 8 Mini Peppers, roughly diced
  • 8 Button/Cremini  Mushrooms, cleaned and halved
  • 1/2 Red Onion, fine diced
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes, pureed
  • 2 tsp(or less/more) Cracked Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt for taste
For the Marinade:
  • 1 tbsp Thick Yogurt
  • A pinch of Turmeric powder
  • A dash of Pepper powder
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Mix all the ingredients under "Marinade" and marinate the chicken for atleast 30 minutes.
  • Shallow fry the peppers and mushrooms in a tbsp of oil for 5 minutes or so. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining tbsp of oil in the pan and bring it to a smoking point.
  • Sear the marinated chicken until its browned on all sides.
  • Add the chopped onions to the pan and fry along with the chicken until its translucent.
  • Pour the tomato puree and add the cracked pepper and salt to the pan.
  • Lid the pan and cook for ~10-12 minutes on medium flame until the chicken in almost cooked.
  • Transfer the mushrooms and peppers to the pan and gently mix. Cook for 5 more minutes or until almost all the water has evaporated and remove from flame.
  • Top this piping hot dry curry on top of brown rice and serve.
Makes ~3 Servings.
