Chicken Gravy | Mint Cashew Chicken gravy

Chicken Gravy with Mint & Cashew

This recipe came out when I started to prepare a normal chicken gravy. The actual recipe when cooking in halfway I found salt was added a bit high. Instead adding curd as such to the gravy just tried out grinding with mint and curd. When I felt to have a little thick consistency soaked and grinded the cashews and I served along with rice. So this would be a book mark even for me to prepare the next time.


Chicken - 1/2 kg
Pepper corns - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1 stick
Chicken masala - 3 tsp
Coriander powder - 3 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Green chillies- 2
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Onion - 2
Tomato -1
Curry leaves - few
Shallots - 10 cup (cut into thin slices)
Garlic - 4
Ginger - 1 inch 
Crystal salt - 2 tsp
Coriander leaves - to garnish

To grind:
Paste 1: Mint & Curd
Paste 2: Cashew -10 (soak for 10 minutes and grind to fine paste)

Chicken Gravy


  1. Heat oil in a pan, add cinnamon, peppercorns, sliced onions,curry leaves and fry until they are soft.
  2. Add in chopped tomatoes and cook mushy.
  3. Then add crushed ginger, garlic and cleaned chicken.
  4. Sprinkle all the spice powders along with salt.
  5. when the chicken is half cooked add paste 1, cover with a lid and cook until pieces become tender.
  6. Then add cashew paste and cook until they gets blended evenly.
  7. Finally add the sliced shallots/pearl onions, mix well and put off the flame.
  8. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

  • Cut the chicken in medium pieces. 
  • Always after washing add little turmeric powder,marinate and keep aside until u cook.  You can use a little amount from the above given measurement.
  • Serve with onion rings spread with lemon,salt and pepper powder.
  • This gravy goes best with chapathi/Roti and better with Rice.
  • Adding shallots at the last is purely optional, as I follow this step at last when ever I make any non-veg gravies which I learn't from my uncle(peripa)
