  • 2 pounds chicken thighs boneless, skinless
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion large, sliced
  • 4 small tomatoes cut in half
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ inch ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 ½ teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • ½ inch cinnamon stick optional
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar or sweetened optional, if needed
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves optional, for garnish


  • Blend the onion, garlic and ginger in a cup of water. Pour into a medium sized pot. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pot - whit the exception of the cilantro which is used later as an optional garnish.
    Mix Ingredients
  • Heat the pot with the ingredients on medium heat - about 5 minutes. When it begins to boil, put on a lid and turn the heat to medium low. Stir occasionally. Chicken is done when it is cooked through and the oil separates from the spices, rising to the top of the gravy. Taste and adjust for seasoning as needed. Turn off heat and garnish prior to serving.
