Easy Peasy Chicken Curry made in Pressure Cooker

I have been slightly sick for the past couple of days. So couldn't post yesterday. I am slowly recovering now, but the body pain kills me. Anyway i am feeling a little better now and started doing my regular household works.

Now let me talk something about this recipe..This is one of very basic chicken curry you could make. It calls for very basic ingrediants, so you can whip up this no time. The cool thing about this is it is cooked in a pressure cooker which cooks the chicken quickly and makes it so meltingly tender..

I hope you will love this.

Serves - 2-3


Oil- 3 tblspn
Fennel Seeds / Saunf - 2 tsp
Onion  - 2 large sliced  thinly
Ginger Garlic Paste - 2 tblpsn
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 spring
Tomato-4 chopped finely
Salt to taste
Chicken - 1/2 kg cleaned


Take a pressure cooker and heat oil in it. Add in fennel seeds and let it crack.

Add in onions and saute for 5 mins.

Add in ginger garlic paste and mix well.

Now add in salt and all the spice powders and mix well.

Throw in tomatoes and curry leaves and cook till the tomatoes turn mushy.

Add in chicken pieces and toss well in the masala.

Now cover the pressure cooker and let it cook for 3 whistle. Now lower the flame and cook for 15 mins on a low flame. Switch off the flame and let the pressure go all by itself.

  8. Hi Arthi,
    Thanks for this easy recipe. Have tried your Mooli Paratha recipe and it turned out great, thanks for the tip on adding chat masala. For the chicken curry do we need to add water during the pressure cooking process ? How much would be required? Was wondering if it would stick to the cooker in case we dont add any water.

  9. @SueThanks for trying sue, no you dont need to add water to the chicken. The chicken will leach a lot of its water.
