Pakistani Style Ginger Chicken – A Flavorful Delight

  • 500g boneless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons ginger-garlic paste
  • 2 tomatoes, pureed
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon red chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • Salt to taste
For the Marinade:
  • 2 tablespoons ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tablespoon red chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt to taste


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the boneless chicken pieces with the marinade ingredients – ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, lemon juice, and salt. Mix well, cover, and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • In a large pan or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onions and sauté until they become golden brown.
  • Add the ginger-garlic paste to the onions and stir-fry for a minute until the raw smell disappears.
  • Stir in the tomato puree and cook until the oil starts to separate from the mixture.
  • Reduce the heat to low and add the marinated chicken to the pan. Cook for 8-10 minutes until the chicken is partially cooked.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the plain yogurt and then add it to the chicken. Mix well to coat the chicken with the yogurt.
  • Add the red chili powder, turmeric powder, ground coriander, ground cumin, and salt. Stir everything together until the chicken is evenly coated with the spices.
  • Cover the pan and let the chicken cook on low heat for about 15-20 minutes or until it becomes tender and the flavors are well blended.
  • Sprinkle garam masala and fresh coriander leaves over the cooked ginger chicken. Mix well and let it simmer for a few more minutes.
  • Serve the Pakistani Style Ginger Chicken hot with naan, rice, or roti, and enjoy the delightful burst of flavors.
