Chicken Gravy | Easy Chicken Gravy | How to make Chicken Gravy


Chicken Gravy is a delicious gravy made by cooking chicken with onion, tomato, ginger, cashew and pepper puree, tempered spices and masala powders. Chicken gravy is delicious with biryani, rice, chapati, puri, and Idli. This can be done very easily with home-made ingredients. Goes well with all kind of lunch and dinner varieties. Hotel style chicken gravy is more creamy, thicker and richer than the home-made style gravy. All restaurants have their own particular recipe, before standardising those recipes, a lot of tasting and experimentation goes on to get an outstanding and peculiar taste for each and every restaurant. So, there is no specific recipe for hotel style chicken gravy, the spices differ from one place to another so the recipe also can differ from one restaurant to another. To get an exact taste, we have to follow many tips, firstly use tender fresh chicken. If you have preplanner for this recipe marinate the chicken with basic spices. Use cashew and almond nuts paste to get thicken the gravy. Obviously use more oil and spices to get a hotel style look and taste. Oil floating on the top is always special in restaurants. But in home we always use less or adequate oil. Prefer freshly ground cumin seeds and fennel seeds powder and add garam masala powder, while chicken get 3/4th cooked. If you add garam masala powder before itself it may loss of flavours in the end. Here we do not use any artificial colour instead we use Kashmiri red chilli powder. In this recipe post, I’m sharing a Restaurant Style chicken gravy that you can easily prepare at home with less oil and spices, but you’ll like the flavours of chicken gravy.
