Chicken Stew With Vegetables Tutorial Video


This recipe is so versatile. You can cook this stew with mutton, lamb, beef, pork, fish, prawns and crabs to make a non-vegetarian version wholesome stew.


Chicken – I always prefer to use chicken on the bone for this recipe. Infact not only this dish but almost all. Cooking stew with chicken on the bone makes the stew more flavourful.

Oil – I used sunflower oil here.

Whole spices – Cumin seeds and fennel seeds are tempered in the oil at the very first.

Ginger garlic – I prefer to freshly ground the ginger and garlic in mortar and pestle instead of using store bought paste or mixie grinded ginger garlic paste.

Onion – Saute the chopped onion

Green chilly – Saute chopped green chilly along wih onion.

Tomato – Chopped tomato is used and saute until it is soft and turns mushy.

Masala spice powders – I have used Ciba Taaza masala powders. Spice powders used are turmeric, Kashmiri chilli, coriander and garam masala powder.

Vegetables – Potatoes, yardlong beans and carrots are used here. You can use any seasonal veggies.

Curry leaves – Curry leaves are tempered along with ground ginger and garlic.

Peppercorns – Cracked peppercorns is used here. I prefer cracked peppercorns over pepper powder.

Lemon juice – A dash of lemon juice is added once the stew is done and the heat is turned off.

Salt – Salt to taste, without salt the dish is incomplete.

Water – I used about 3 cups of water. I liked a thin and runny broth/stew. Water can be added as per one’s requirement.
