Easy Thermomix Chicken Curry

Hello dear readers, I have a confession to make… I have been holding out on you! For the last month or more I have been making this simple Chicken Curry over and over again and I didn’t share the recipe.

I feel really bad because it’s honestly the easiest and tastiest chicken curry you will ever make. The only reason I haven’t share the recipe before today is we keep eating it all before it can be photographed.

If you don’t have a Thermomix please don’t be put off, the recipe is just as easily made on the stove top.  This recipe is one of the exclusive recipes I’ve included in my “An Indian ThermoKitchen” cookbook.

Before refining this recipe I honestly thought that making curry was best left to the local Indian restaurant. I was simply not able to replicated the flavours as closely as I wanted. Now I am pleased to say my Easy Chicken Curry with Yoghurt has revolutionised my thoughts on Indian food. I have to admit I did get some help from one our local Indian Restaurant in Coffs Harbour.

You see Coffs Harbour has the largest Sikh (Punjabi) community in Australia. I was lucky enough to grow up living next door to the family that owned the first Indian Restaurant in the area. After a bit of persuading, I have been able to coax the ingredients and method of one of my favourite curries from the chef.

The recipe takes about 30 minutes from start to finish and is a healthy, creamy recipe. Everyone in our family loves the dish. Making this at home means that you can adjust the heat to suit your individual preferences.

The recipe makes 6 servings of curry. I love that the recipe makes loads of rich sauce.  The perfect accompaniment to the dish is basmati rice and homemade Chapati.

Chapati is a very simple flat bread, made with Atta flour. Atta flour is actually a wholemeal flour which has been ground very finely. Chapati dough is made by mixing the Atta flour with salt and warm water, so it really couldn’t be easier to make. Once kneaded until combined, approximately 2 minutes, the dough is formed into balls and then flattened into rounds. No oil is used when cooking the chapati so it’s actually quite a lean flatbread.

In all my recipe trials I have also substituted lamb in place of the chicken.  I found it equally as delicious, and perhaps even a little bit more rich and tasty. However, the chicken is so tender in the curry it’s still my favourite version.

About Julie


  1. Alesah Villalon :

    Yum, Bhing would choose chicken curry over any other dish anytime! I love that you showed the option with yoghurt, for an authentic Indian-style curry. And yes, chili please! 🙂

  2. Interesting, I was thinking of making a chicken curry last night! I went another direction, but now you have me regretting my choice. 🙂 This looks just excellent — thanks!

  3. Love a good curry, especially in winter!

  4. Hi Julie, my family would love this, we always order curry when we go out, the color is perfect.

    • We always order curry too Cheri. Although this one is so simple I can’t imagine ordering Indian again in a hurry. I hope you try the recipe xx

  5. Printing this out as I type. I need a go-to chicken curry and I need to start teaching the teenagers how to make one too.

    THANK YOU!!!!

  6. Hi Seana xx Do you have a Thermomix. This curry in the TM is like cheating!!

  7. Yum. This looks delicious. I’ve been wanting to try more curries for the kids so might give it a shot. X

  8. Nicholle Elliott :

    Wuick question – is the chicken stock tm chicken stock from EDC? I haven’t made my chicken stock yet but do have veg stock, can I substitute? Thanks, Nic

    • I use ordinary liquid stock. For a chicken curry I would use Campbells Real Chicken Stock, but I have also used liquid beef stock and vege stock and it has always been delicious. If you only have powdered stock use the recommended ratio of stock powder to water to achieve 120mls. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Sounds like a great recipe. But I have to ask – why don’t you use a TM chicken stock paste with water rather than purchased stock? That’s what I will be doing. Making your own stock is a huge money saver and you know what is in your food then.

    • Hi Robyn, of course you could use the TM stock. I’m just a little lazy and I never have it ready. I always have the liquid stock in the pantry.

  10. We make Chicken in Yoghurt and this looks similar but even more delicious. We love a good curry so can’t wait to give this a go! Yumbo!

  11. What a beautiful dish, I really loved everything about it.

  12. This is amazing! I have just returned from Coffs Harbour where my favourite Indian restaurant is based near the jetty. Thank you for sharing this thermomix curry I have yet to make one in my thermie but now you have kindly shared your version (which does seem very authentic) we will be enjoying it very soon. Beautiful photograph, wonderful recipe 😀

  13. Pepi Malamoglou :

    Wow this looks great. Is it too much for the TM5 to double the ingredients for 10 people? If so what are the cooking times?

  14. Jackie Fischer :

    This was delicious, thank you! Used 1/2 yoghurt and 1/2 coconut milk as it was all I had. Also added some capsicum and mushrooms when adding the chicken to up the vege intake.

    • Thanks so much for the lovely message Jackie. Coconut milk is a good substitute for a change of flavour. I make this recipe a lot and add veges periodically too, I love baby spinach. Just add the uncooked spinach to the thermoserver. Pour the finished curry into the thermoserver and stir. Leave it for 5 minutes prior to serving. Yum!

  15. Thumbs up from everyone tonight, this would have to be the tastiest Butter Chicken I have made, thank you for sharing this recipe.

  16. Oh no! You’ve taken the recipe down. We have made this previously and loved it. Bought all the ingredients to make it tonight only to find we now have to purchase the recipe but it’s not even available yet. How disappointing to find this change.
