Capsicum Chicken

Capsicum Chicken

Capsicum Chicken is my experiment which turned out good. Easy and creamy dish without heavy cream. Goes well with chapathi, paratha and rice.


  • Boneless chicken breasts – 250 grams, cut into small pieces
  • Oil – 2 tbsps
  • Onion – 1 cup+ 1/2 cup, chopped
  • Tomato – 1 and a half tomato
  • Ginger – 1 inch, chopped into small pieces
  • Garlic – 2 , sliced
  • Whole cashews – 6
  • Capsicum – 1 , diced
  • Chilli powder -1 tsp + 1/2 tsp, adjust according to taste
  • Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp
  • Salt – according to taste
  • Cilantro – for garnishing


  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan.
  • Add the chopped onion, tomatoes, ginger, garlic and cashews.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Saute until the onion and tomato is well cooked.
  • Let it cool.
  • Grind it to a fine paste without using water.
  • In the same pan, saute diced capsicums in 1 tbsp of oil.
  • When the capsicum is cooked, add the ground tomato-onion paste, chilli powder and turmeric powder.
  • Immediately add the chicken pieces and let the mixture cook in low heat until the chicken is cooked.
  • Add salt if required.
