This Indian spiced chilli & ginger chicken is a perfect treat for a bright weekend which you decide to enjoy at home with friends and family or even all by yourself!
Today I bring to you an Indian spiced chicken recipe which is sort of a chicken curry but not quite so. It is pleasantly different from classic chicken curry but packed with all beautiful aroma of Indian spices. This chicken dish is primarily dominated by flavors of ginger with a subtle kick of chillies, but all is perfectly amalgamated in a yogurt-based gravy. If you are looking for the classic restaurant style ginger chicken curry, then this is not the one. For that you will have to head over to my Indian recipe blog – Everyday Indian Recipes and you will get the classic ginger chicken curry recipe there along with many other classic as well as fusion Indian recipes!
The use of toasted whole spices – cumin seeds and coriander seeds – adds a whole new dimension of flavor to this chilli and ginger chicken. I would urge you to toast the whole seeds on your own and do not use the readily available ground cumin and ground coriander. Using already ground spices is never same as using freshly toasted and ground coarse spices; you can definitely use ground spices in many other curry recipes but not exactly in this one. Trust me, this extra effort of toasting and grinding the spice on your own is all worth it!
