Dahi Chicken

A low fat Indian chicken curry recipe with yogurt as it’s base. This dish is high on proteins, and low on carbohydrates.


  • 1/2 kg boneless chicken (cut as you like it)2 1/2 cups yogurt1 tsp cumin / zeera powder1 tsp garlic paste1/2 tsp red chilli (rang) powderA little less than 1/4 tsp turmeric/haldi1/4 tsp garam masalaFew slit green chillies2 onions, chopped1 tomato, choppedCoriander leaves to garnish2 tsp oil1 tsp salt


Take the yogurt and mix in the cumin powder, garlic paste, garam masala, haldi and red chilli powder. Mix with hands. Put chicken into this and add slit chillies. Keep aside for 30 minutes.

Now heat 2 tsp oil in pan and add onions. Cook till translucent and soft.

Add the tomatoes. Cook for a minute and add all the chicken and marinade.

Keep cooking till gravy reaches the consistency you like. Of you like it more dry, cook a little bit more till yogurt curdles around chicken. Check for salt.

Garnish with coriander leaves and enjoy. This can be eaten with rice if the gravy is more and with Indian bread(roti/naan) if you dry it up.
