Kadai Chicken Recipe

A beautiful combination of strong flavors and spices is what makes this red curry dish so tempting. It is fairly simple to cook. Delicious juicy pieces of chicken with capsicums that are prepared in gravy that is creamy and spicy. The fenugreek seeds add that touch of slight bitterness to the dish, the lovely color of capsicum adds a dash of zing and color to the dish, the cream adds flavor and at the same time cuts the intensity of the spice. Try this one out; I am sure that kadai chicken is one dish that will make you popular with your family and social circle. It is irresistible, mouth-watering and extremely simple to cook.


Kadai chicken, as the name suggests is cooked in a kadai, but for many of us that option seems to be slightly unhealthy. For all of you out there that do not prefer to use a lot of oil in your food, you could switch the kadai for the oven or microwave. I prefer to cook in the microwave. It takes less time, its healthy; it is a lot less messy.

Kadai chicken will more or less go with any Indian bread. What you can do is, to add a zest of tradition, try out with a laccha parantha or a chapatti, rice or even a naan.
