Bengali Chicken Curry with Potatoes Recipe

Delicious real chicken curry. I had this virtually daily as a kid. Blend the onions and tomatoes before adding the chicken and potatoes for a creamier sauce.

Ingredient

– 2 tablespoons olive oil – 2 large onions, diced – 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste – 2 large tomatoes, diced – 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more to taste – 1 teaspoon curry powder – 1 teaspoon garam masala – 1 teaspoon ground turmeric – 1 teaspoon ground cumin – 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size piece – 2 large red-skinned potatoes, chopped – ½ cup fresh cilantro

Instructions

Warm up the olive oil in a big pan over medium-high heat. In hot oil, cook and stir the onions for about 5 minutes, or until they turn clear.
