C3...Capsicum Curd Chicken....!!!!

It was a Sunday morning and I was down with severe cough and cold.So,this time,not olny the breakfast but also my hubby dear prepared an awesome lunch for us with a lovely chicken item.The chicken was so good in taste that I just cant restrict myself from sharing it with all of you.

He has given a beautiful name of this item as well.C3,Capsicum Curd Chicken.

Here is the recipe:


  • Chicken:500gm
  • Capsicum:3 large
  • Curd:5-6 tbsp
  • Onion:3 large
  • Tomato:1(chopped),optional
  • Ginger paste:2 tsp
  • Garlic:5-6 cloves chopped
  • Masturd oil
  • Turmeric powder:1tsp
  • Chilli powder:1/2 tsp
  • Salt :As per taste
  • sugar: 1/2 tsp
  • Water:1cup
  • Garam masala powder: 1/2tsp


  •  At first chop one capsicum very finely and dice the other two.
  • Make  a smooth paste of 2 of the 3 onions and thinely slice the other one.
  • Take the chicken,wash it and with a tissue paper dry up the extra water.
  • Now in a large bowl add the chicken,3 tbsp masturd oil,sliced onion,finely chopped capsicum,chilli powder  and mix very well.
  • Put the marinated chicken mixture in refrigerator and keep it for 1 hr.
  • Then add the rest of the mustard oil in a deep bottom vessel.
  • Add sugar,fry it till brown .
  • Then add garlic paste,chopped tomato and cook them until the tomato becomes soft.
  • Add the onion paste and stir it for few minutes.
  • Now it's time for the chopped capsicum. Add them and fry them little in low flame.
  • Then add the temeric powder.
  • Add the ginger paste and cook it low flame until the oil separes from the mixture.
  • Now add the marinated chicken pieces.
  • Add salt with it.
  • Cook very well in low flame until the chicken pieces become soft and tender.
  • As curd is already there in the marinated chicken ,huge amount of water will release and it will help to cook the chicken and so be careful while adding extra water.If you want to prepare your chicken in little dry form ,you need not to add water.
  • When it comes to your desied consistancy sprinkle little garam masala powder.
  • Serve with hot steaming rice.
