Baked Chicken Curry


“Billi Ko Khwab me bhi Chinchde Nazar Ate Hai “ – and the Metaphor of My Life when it comes to Food. It means – “A cat think of fish bones even in dreams.” I plan for breakfast before going to bed, plan for lunch during breakfast and plan for dinner during lunch. I seem to be planning about food and meals all the time. Sometimes I even plan during my sleep and I plan in the weekend for the entire week’s meal.

Honestly speaking, planning about food is a very tedious job especially when you know you have to do it day in and day out and you cannot live without food. Eating out is a laidback option. However, I always look for recipes so that I can prepare an entire meal in 30 minutes. Today’s chicken curry is one such dish.

I wanted to name it Bachelor Chicken Curry Instead because it is awfully easy, hassle free and so zesty  –“ekdum restaurant style “ . I have used very less oil, just for tempering . The only thing you will need is Nestle’s Maggie Tomato Ketchup- Hot and Sweet flavor. You can use the normal tomato ketchup as well. However, I find Hot and Sweet the King of all Ketchups. I have used OTG to cook the curry. Please go ahead and cook the curry on gas stove with barely any dissimilarity in the taste.
