Indian Chicken Stew

Hi there,
How's everyone doing? Feeling good as usual? I sincerely hope so. There's nothing new or exciting from my end, so, lets not waste not time and get down to the recipe of the day. Its a stew (Braised Chicken Feet Stew & Lamb Stew)! Thicker compared to soups (Dhal Vegetable Soup & Basil Tomato Soup), typically slow-cooked and for me, soups are also cooked over very low heat to infuse the flavours and also with the option of cooking in the slow cooker. There is no wrong and right formula on the types of ingredients you prefer, but for an Indian style (Chicken Curry Potato, Spicy Chicken Raisin, Lamb Kofta Curry, Mutton Devil Curry, Potato Green Peas Curry, Vegetable Kurma Curry, Curried Potatoes & Chilli Mutton Potato ) stew, it has to be spices and herbs. The rosemary came from my garden (rosemary cheesy potatoes) and just a suggestion, try pairing this Indian Chicken Stew alongside Lemon Cashew Nut Rice.

400g chicken - cut into bite sizes
1 large red onion - chopped
Spices - 1 stick cinnamon, 1 star anise & 3 cloves
2 sprigs rosemary - remove leaves (can be replaced with other suitable herbs)
3 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

To blend/ground
2 tomatoes
3 red chillies
2 green chillies
5 garlic
1 inch ginger
5 shallots 

Sauté onion and spices in heated oil.
Add grounded/blended ingredients.
Stir and simmer till oil splits.
Add chicken and stir. 
Pour 1/2 litre of water and season with salt. 
Simmer till chicken is cooked.
Combine in rosemary. 
Stir and remove from heat.

  1. WOW! just feel like grabbing that bowl Nava. Looks so delicious..
    It happens to me quite often that I either read the recipe missing out on something or I forget.. :-)

  2. yum....that chicken stew is super delicious. Nava u r simply great, u can manage so many things at time. I find balancing everything so difficult and i often forget doing one or the other thing despite i have lots of time while my kid sleeps..... :-(...anyways great shot, love the luks as if the chicken stew is alive and is calling me to eat it... :-)

  3. Ohh yes, cutting veggies and forgetting to add due to something going on inside the small head of mine happens once a week, so been there done that!! The chicken stew looks yum, the stew color says it all - I think you used a real good ripe red tomato(nowadays tomatoes here are slightly orangish and sturdy..hmm..not good...never get the right color in recipes).
    Love the simple flavor and the rosemary addition is a good variant.
    Very nice, inviting shot!

  4. Hahaha! U're so cute, Nava! Nevertheless, the dish looks appetizing. I'm like u too, getting more & more forgetful these days. The other day my whole pot of barley went down the drain cause I forgot to turn off the fire :< There goes my WMF pot too! Lol!

  12. Managing home & work is sometimes really difficult. Forgetting things to add to my dishes. this happens all the time with me.

    Chicken stew looks appetizing & yummmy. my kind of spicy stew with green & red chillies.

  13. Tell me about it Nava.. It happens with me all the time.. Sometimes I'm very organised, sometimes very forgetful too.. And in my case I'd like to add - sometimes very lazy :D
    Kudos to you dear for managing a lot of things soo well.. Chicken stew looks delicious, yummy and nutritious dear :-)

  14. it happens. I am getting forgetful too. There's so many things to do!

  15. Haha.. That happens to me too very often.. Mostly I forget to add the curry leaves ;) This stew is rich in itself without the addition of potatoes :) I wud love to have it with bread !!

  16. I hear a lot in my home that I am becoming forgetful but I don't take that seriously. We women forget things when we try to multitask. The chicken stew is just fine without potatoes.

  17. Lol,, about the the potato, it's happen to me sometime, otherwise it's still looks tempting without potato it's just perfect stew for me :)

  18. That looks super scrumptious, lovely colour on the dish

  19. Even i get lost sometimes when i'm in the kitchen :( This chicken stew looks perfect even without potatoes.

  20. This is so, so, so tempting!

  21. IT's great that u r doing an amazing job at balancing everything Nava :) I'm totally disorganized ,it's only at the last moment do I always decide what to cook :) Chicken stew looks very delicious and comforting !

  22. This is going to be my next happy one pot meal. Will certainly put in some potatoes for the hubby's sake.

    I wonder if carrots, cabbages and cauliflower will go nicely?

  23. This is a unique way to make chicken soup.
