Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and turmeric and saute; when onions are brown, add chicken and saute for about 10 minutes, or until chicken is almost cooked through.

  • Add tomato paste, water and salt and pepper to taste. Stir together, reduce heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, during which the 'gravy' should thicken.

  • Meanwhile, put carrots in a small saucepan; add sugar and cook until carrots are soft to caramelize. When cooked, drain carrots. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium heat, add carrots and saute. Set aside.

  • Heat remaining 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet, add potatoes and fry. (If desired, add a pinch of turmeric and a pinch of salt.) Add carrots and potatoes to chicken, stir all together and serve.

Very good recipe with an East Indian flavor. It is relatively quick to make quicker than the recipe actually says as some of the prep can go on while other things are cooking. You can also save time by sauteing the carrots along with the potatoes after the potatoes are almost done. The potatoes really make the recipe good as they blend into the gravy mixture making it thick and hearty. I highly recommend (though I think that 1 tablespoon of turmeric is sufficient). Read More

I have found many wonderful recipes on this site but this is not one of them. The turmeric created a "bitter" taste that resembled garlic that had been burned. I would never make this again it was not even worthy of one star. Read More

I was worried about so much tumeric in the recipe. It does have an East Indian flavour but not too over powering. Everyone enjoyed it even my fussy teenage son. I left out the potatoes and added a few more carrots. Read More

I made this recipe after finding it with the "ingredient search" because it fit with what I had on hand. My husband generally turns his nose up at new recipes but he raved about this one! Even my 3 1/2 year-old daughter loved it! The carmelized carrots are worth the effort. I also reduced the tumeric to 1 T. The only change I may make next time is to increase the amount of potatoes and carrots that I use. Read More

Delicious! I made some adjustments: diced tomatoes instead of paste no potatoes and 1/2 chicken broth rather than water. The flavor was amazing and it was fairly easy to make with some organization. My only complaint is that it needed a lot of salt as it simmered - but that may have been because I didn't use the tomato paste? No matter I will definitely make this again! Read More
