Indian Style Chicken Curry

This is a recipe I have prepared a few weeks ago.  Although I was planning to cook something vegetarian for Joan’s event A Culinary Tour around the world, unfortunately I did not manage to cook something, for personal reasons.

BloggerAid is also inviting its members to join Earth Hour 2009.

With only a few days to go before the world switches off for Earth Hour 2009, organisers are calling on the social media community to help this year’s campaign to reach out to one billion people around the world.

Earth Hour event is a global public awareness campaign about the effects of climate change and they are urging bloggers, podcasters, online video makers, mobile users and online social networkers to spread the word about the importance of turning our lights out for one hour at 8.30pm on March 28.

Show your support to them by joining at their official website or on networks such as Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, flickr and Twitter, or by posting about it on your blog and wear one of their badges.


Preparation time:  30 minutes

  • 1 boiled chicken breast

Cut chicken into 1 inch pieces and add to the vegetables. Add wine and mix for a few minutes until the alcohol evaporates and add spices, stir well and cook for 5-10 minutes. Finally add the milk and boil until it becomes creamy.

  1. Scrumptious looking! I love indian flavors!

    Cheers and have a great week,


  2. Ivy – I really enjoy curry and don’t eat it often enough. Your recipe looks really good! Thank you for participating in our stop in India. And thank you for all the efforts you spearhead that help bring awareness to so many important social issues of our time.

    Ivy, this is one of my comfort foods!
    I’m curious about the Halva though. It’s a common Indian sweet too (Halwa). Since you’re a fount of knowledge when it comes to food lore, would you know the origins of Halva/Halwa?

  4. looks simply delicious and it’s making me crave for some right now!

  5. Well done Ivy…that curry looks finger licking good. I’ve signed up for the earth campaign a while ago. there’s a foodie blog event on at Morsels & Musings too.BFF was a great idea. Can’t wait to see who my BFF is. xoxoo

  6. I’ve always wanted to do this recipe at home and in fact I have the chicken… but all those spices… I should go out and buy them; maybe another day. Today my parents come home for lunch and the Menu is Pizza.

    Count on me on the new BloggerAid Event, I’m clicking the link and subscribing 😀

  7. Your curry looks so delicious! We usually add coconut milk to our curry dishes instead of evaporated milk. But I think this milk would taste just as great!

    I signed up for BFF already. This is an exciting idea! 🙂

  8. That Indian chicken looks so yummy. I love Indian food. So if we’re already a part of bloggeraid, we don’t have to do anything else to participate?

    Thanks everybody for the lovely comments.

    Dee, it’s kind of complicated as there are a lot of halva types in Greece. The one closer to the Indian one is that with semolina, which I hope to post soon and try and find some answers to your question.

    Hopie, if you are referring to the BloggerAid Best Friends Forever, please leave a comment at the post on BloggerAid that you wish to participate.

  10. I love a good curry…a kind kind of heat and always packed with flavours. The dish transports exotic places.

  11. Your curry is lovely, I was expecting to see a Greek dish, haha! Thanks for posting the bloggeraid events. I almost miss them. The light switch event is very meaningful! I have to check it out and join !!!

  12. Beautiful curry. I did send an email to participate in the BloggerAid exchange. Great idea.

  13. A lot of great ideas and partnerships coming out of BloggerAid! Good job.

    I haven’t make chicken curry for a long time. I should try this recipe.
