Chicken stir fry

We often prepare onion tomato curry with chili powder for chapatis to cope up our busy week days. The difference is I have added chicken to the plain curry and stir fry that goes well with Indian bread chapatti/roti. It is easy, quick and adds little sweet taste because of tomato. When you want to give break to flavors, tired, or when you want to prepare something very quick here is the one. Sometimes in Chicken biriyani, chicken will be leftover while rice is fully consumed. I use the leftover chicken pieces and make yummy fry using this recipe. Easy and very quick to prepare all you need to have is onion tomato chili powder.


  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 lbs chicken (cubed), 500gm
  • 1 large tomato (finely chopped)
  • 1 medium size onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 ½ tsp red chili powder
  • 2 green chilies (slit lengthwise)



Step 1:  Heat oil in a frying pan, add chopped onion and fry till translucent. Add chilies and sauté.

Step 2:  Add washed chicken pieces and fry till brown about 5 to 6 minutes. Add tomato and saute till soft.

Step 3: Add chili powder and stir fry. Add half cup of water to cook chicken.

Step 4: Add salt and give a quick stir. Cover the lid and cook till done.


  • As I always say spice can be adjusted based on your spice level.
  • Garnish with coriander (optional)
  • Use of green chili is optional.
