If you’re a fan of Indian cuisine, then you know that chicken curry is a staple dish. But if you’ve never made it at home before, it can seem like a daunting task. Luckily, Raja Indian Restaurant in Cambridge has shared their step-by-step guide to making the perfect chicken curry at home.


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until it turns translucent. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger and sauté for an additional minute.

Step 2

Add the chicken pieces to the pan and cook until they are no longer pink.

Step 3

Add the tomato paste, garam masala, ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric, and cayenne pepper to the pan and stir until the chicken is coated with the spices.

Step 4

Pour in the chicken broth and canned crushed tomatoes, stirring to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Step 5

Pour in the heavy cream and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6

Let the curry simmer for an additional 5 minutes to allow the flavours to meld together.

Step 7

Serve the chicken curry over rice, garnished with chopped cilantro if desired.
