Chicken Masala


Chicken Masala has been on every Indian restaurant menu anywhere in the world. The delicacy is composed of grilled chunks of chicken in a creamy spiced tomato sauce. The dish is so popular that someone had expressed that “Tomato sauce has universal appeal. When the dish is eaten with naan bread, it’s like an Indian version of pizza!” Try the traditional Chicken Masala recipe at home, straight from the heart of Camberwell Curry House.


1. For the chicken:

  • 500-600 gms skinless boneless chicken
  • 1/4 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red chilli powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato, freshly chopped
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro or coriander

3. For serving:

  • Naan (Indian flatbread) and/or cooked Basmati Rice


1. For the chicken:

  • Fire up your grill and lightly brush it with oil.
  • Place the boneless chicken pieces on the grill, shaking off some of the excess marinade.
  • Cook on each side, until it’s charred.

2. For the curry:

  • Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter.
  • When the butter has melted, add the ginger-garlic paste and chopped onions. Saute until lightly browned around the edges.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and cook until the tomato has darkened in color.
  • Add the dry masalas and saute for about 1 minute to draw out their flavors.
  • Add 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer. Cook until the gravy is thickened for about 20 minutes.
  • You may need more water depending on how much liquid the tomatoes give off.
  • Pour the sauce into a blender or food processor, or use an immersion blender, and process until smooth.
  • Pour back into the skillet and bring back up to a boil.
  • Add the chicken and take the heat down to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the cream and stir through.
  • Garnish with minced fresh cilantro or coriander.
  • Serve with naan (Indian flatbread) and/or cooked basmati rice

  1. Hey. I want to share with all the great news!

    A month ago an anonymous source sent me 7 bitcoins of wallets that double the bitcoins you sent and send back your purses twice as much.

    I am familiar with blockchain technology and therefore did not believe it.

    But my curiosity has gone up.

    I sent at my own risk and 0.5 bitcoins to one of these wallets and in just 2 hours, exactly 1 bitcoin came to my wallet.

    I was shocked!

    Then I started working with these bitcoins wallets and revealed the regularity that one wallet can send 0.5 to 5 bitcoins per day from one purse.

    At the moment I have 350 bitcoins of wallets from which I send 350 – 700 bitcoins daily and get twice as much.

    For a month, I became a multimillionaire.

    Another month I will work and become a billionaire.

    I already got what I wanted, I quit my job, paid off all my debts, bought a good house and a car from the Audi RS4.

    Now I feel like a human being and live for my own pleasure.

    These are the good bitcoins of wallets I earn:








    Now many people improve their financial status with these wallets but keep it a secret from everyone.

    I hate poverty, so I share with you all this method of earning, grab a piece of this huge and juicy cake.

    I will remind you once again. Send from one bitcoin your wallet strictly from 0.5 to 5 bitcoins per wallet per day, otherwise you will receive the same amount that you sent without doubling.

    This scheme of work is completely safe. You can work like me, create a lot of wallets and send them from each of them to the above wallets.
