Kadai Chicken | Chicken Kadahi

Simple ingredients and flavorful chicken. Kadai(kadahi) is circular deep pot like Chinese Wok used in Asian cooking. Recipe will turn out equally tasty in any other cooking pot used,so go ahead try this even if you don't have a kadai in your kitchen. But be sure not to over cook the bell peppers ,I like them still crunchy ,so I cook the chicken separately. Since this recipe uses chicken with bones ,it takes longer to cook but has lot more flavor.


Serves 3-4
  • 2 lb (about 1 KG) Free-range skinless chicken with bones,cut in medium pieces
  • 1/2 cup Organic low fat Yogurt 
  • 1 medium bell pepper ,deseeded and chopped

  • 1 large ripe tomato,chopped
  • 1/2 a medium onion ,chopped or sliced
