Madras Chicken Curry

Updated on January 10, 2018

Madras is a place in south india... Madras curries are usually very spicy because of the heavy use of chilly powder... in my recipe here I have used store bought Madras curry powder. It is quick and very easy recipe if you use the store bought masala.

To make the madras chicken curry with gravy add 2 cups of water in step 3 along with chicken.

You can make your own madras curry powder and use it in this curry I used the store bought one as I didn't have time to make my own.
