Are you someone who loves chicken and all its culinary possibilities? Lately, I’ve been getting very bored with my usual lunchtime meal – a hearty bowl of chicken soup. After some time without diversity, I decided to find other avenues when it comes to my preferred food. One dish in particular stood out above the rest – ginger fried chicken.
There was nothing about this dish that didn’t sound appealing; however, because there was so much involved when frying these pieces of meat at home, I felt pretty intimidated at first glance. But after careful consideration of the simple steps involved in the process and how worth it they were based on what came out of them – before long, ‘fried chicken’ became one of my favorite meals!

Method of Preparation:
- In a blender add the tomatoes as well as the milk and blend it into a smooth and fine liquid while ensuring that no tomato chunks remain. Leave this in the blender for now, moving onto doing everything else for now.
- Warm up the vegetable oil in a pot over high heat.
- Stir fry the chicken in the pot for about 10 minutes, or until it’s cooked through.
- Add the desired amount of salt when frying the chicken and continue to cook until the meat becomes pink.
- Add the red chilli powder, coriander seeds powder and turmeric powder to the chicken. You need to mix this well so that the spices coat all of the chicken really well.
- After adding the vegetables and spices, you must then add the tomato mixture to the pot.
- Add one and a half cups of water to the blender and blend it until there are no traces of tomato paste left. Pour the mixture into the cooking pot with an appropriate amount of water.
- Now increase the flame and bring the entire dish to a boil. Add the chopped ginger. Cover the cooking pot again for about 10 minutes and then turn down the heat until it reaches a simmering state where you’ll leave it covered for another 15-20 minutes or so before removing from stove-top.
- To prevent the chicken from getting stuck to the bottom of the pot, make sure you give it a good stir every now and then. When cooked through, let your mix thicken up a bit before serving.
- Take the lid off and allow the extra water to boil away on high heat. The curry will be done when the sauce has thickened properly and all of the oil has been extracted from it. Ginger chicken is now prepared for serving!
- Make sure you serve this dish of spicy ginger curry either with traditional Indian bread or hot rotis for an authentic taste!
Tips to Remember:
- Make sure that the chicken is warm when served or else it will lose its flavor and fragrance.
- For an enhanced taste, the roti should be warm too. This would pair nicely with Indian-style ginger chicken curry made with ingredients such as turmeric and coriander.
- Use fresh chicken to make this dish for optimal health benefits and delicious flavor.
- It is important to remember to stir the meat while it is cooking so that it does not burn.
- Ginger should be fresh so that it can provide the best smells and tastes.
The type of chicken piece you select will dictate the taste. Thighs are far more tasty than breasts and much juicier too. You may also decide to use boneless or not, but in order for it to be fully cooked, follow this simple ginger chicken recipe for an expert-level dish in under 45 minutes! Alternatively, if you’re looking for something lighter there are plenty of ways of pairing these dishes – with fried rice or noodles for example – and then you’ll find out just how good they can taste. This savory dish is simply irresistible and pairs well with anything else on offer at your local takeaway place.
