Badami chicken is a simple chicken curry enriched with the goodness of almonds, as the name suggests. This recipe does not require a whole lot of ingredients, but it has a unique aroma with a very distinct flavor. It gets its sweetness from the almonds and tanginess from the curd. It is a dish that will give you the delectable taste with the goodness of protein and the essential fats. Enjoy this creamy chicken with roti or butter garlic naan.



Heat oil in a pan. Once the oil is hot, add the thinly sliced onions and cook on medium to high heat till they turn brown. Take them off the flame when done.


In a blender, add the onions, curd and almonds and blend to a smooth paste.


Take out the paste in a bowl and add the ginger garlic paste and all the ground spices except garam masala. Mix well.


Now add the chicken to this paste and let it sit in this marinade for 30 mins.


In the same wok, add a tbsp of oil. When it turns hot, add the chicken with the marinade and cook it on medium to high flame for 2-3 mins. Now turn the flame to medium, cover and cook for 20 mins, stirring in between. It will be a little runny at this stage. Remove the lid at this point and cook until the gravy has thickened, this will take about 8-10 mins. Once the gravy thickens, add the garam masala powder and Kasuri methi. Mix well, cover and cook it on low flame for 2 mins.
Serve this hot and delicious badami chicken curry with roti and naan.
