18 fantastic Chicken Curry Recipes from India

The other day I was chatting with my school time friend about random daily things when the topic suddenly changed to curries and Indian food. She explained that she had discovered a liking for Indian food specialties and gravy treats and when I heard this I was mighty surprised. You have to know, Indian food and especially spicy food (because most Indian dishes are generously spiced) is just out of this world and very exotic for an Austrian from the mountains.

“I like to dip that flat bread (nan) into my butter chicken gravy!”, my friend proclaimed.

When my ears heard this I started to ponder about the significance of her words. My Knödel and Schnitzel loving friend likes curries! No way! A miracle has happened and if she likes it, that means sooner or later I will be able to convince others in this world that Indian Curries simply rock.

Then it hit me! We need a collection of exquisite Indian Curries, a roundup of curries to pick from and to try. First I thought about sharing a whole collection of multiple curry types but then I thought otherwise and decided to take it easy on you. Believe me you would be overwhelmed by the sheer incredible number of different curries in India.

So I decided to present you today a collection of 18 fantastic Chicken Curry Recipes from India, including my food blogger friend’s all time favorites and mine as well, and in the next months I will be sharing more theme specific curries such as veg curries etc. Today we start with Chicken curry recipes because a reader had requested Chicken curries which she could try and enjoy at home and I am anyway the first one to attack chicken curry dishes at buffet functions (yes I know I am unchangeable), which again proofs that Indian chicken curry dishes are some of the most sought after. ;)

So, take a look at the different chicken curry recipes further down, pick and save the ones you will try and share with us your experience here in a comment.  We love to hear from you!

When one compares the Chicken Korma Recipe II photo with all these absolutely gorgeous pictures, one can tell how meticulous you have been since the time you started blogging. Helene, I couldn’t stop staring at each of these pictures and as a result, at 12.15 am, I am feeling like eating chicken!
