  • Slow Cooker


  • 500 grams Boneless Chicken Breast cut into cubes
  • 2 tbspn Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Medium Onion Finely Chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon grated Ginger
  • 2 tablespoon Curry Powder (ref note 1)
  • 1/4 cup Tomato paste Cut into small pieces
  • 2 tspn Kashmiri Red chili powder (ref note 2)
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • Salt to taste


  • Start with the curry base. To make the curry base heat oil in a pan.
  • Add finely chopped Onion to the pan. Cook on medium flame until the onion starts to soften and brown.
  • Then add minced garlic and ginger. Saute for a minute so that the raw smell of garlic and ginger is gone.
  • Add curry powder to the pan and saute for 30 seconds until aromatic. Keep stirring to avoid burning.
  • Add Chicken cubes to the crockpot, onion ginger garlic mixture (made above), tomato paste, Kashmiri Chilli powder, salt and coconut milk.
  • Mix well and cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 5 hours.
  • While serving sprinkle fresh coriander.



  1. The curry powder that I have used was a mixture of coriander powder, cumin powder, fennel powder, cardamom powder, cloves, cinnamon, and turmeric powder.  I have seen a few brands of curry powder, that contains only coriander, cumin, fennel, and turmeric powder. In that case, use 1.5 tablespoons of curry powder and 1 teaspoon garam masala to it. 
  2. Kashmiri red chilli powder is a less spicy chilli powder used in Indian Cuisine for giving deep red colour to curries. You can use paprika instead. I also add 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder to the curry because we love it spicy.
