Chicken is one of the most popular proteins used throughout the world. It is also very versatile and goes well with Indian spices. The simplest Punjabi dish in Indian cuisine is the Chicken Masala. This Main Course dish is simpler than the Chicken Tikka Masala and takes comparatively less time to prepare too. This aromatic curry is a delectable blend of spices and tender chicken breasts. It is a p ... erfect accompaniment with a plate of hot steamed rice or buttered roti and takes a special place in the hearts of many food enthusiasts. Its intense flavours take you to a gastronomical journey of the Punjabi cuisine. The dish is very popular and if you are inviting friends or family over for dinner, this semi-gravy curry will surely fit into the day’s menu. The home-style Chicken Masala recipe can be made with the regular ingredients that you have in your house and takes just around 30 minutes to make. The recipe is also a low-calorie version of the regular Chicken Masala and has far fewer calories compared to Butter Chicken. If you have been to any Indian restaurant to enjoy a meal of chicken, you probably must have tried some version of this dish. It is also simply called Chicken curry. Like every popular dish, many of us have our own way, and perhaps a secret ingredient that we put into this hearty dish. But the basic ingredients remain the same, Chicken breasts, curd, onion, tomato, and spicy masala paste.
