Do you cook chicken before adding to curry?
If you are looking to make a curry with raw chicken, you are best browning the chicken at the start of the cooking process. That way, you can ensure it is cooked through as you prepare your curry.
Can you put raw chicken on the grill?
Cut thick chicken breasts lengthwise and then place the chicken on the grates of the grill. You can cook your chicken on direct heat, but don’t go too hot on the grill. You’ll burn the outside (think it is done) but still have raw meat on the inside.
How do I keep my grilled chicken moist?
All it takes is 30 minutes in a simple brine solution of 1/4 cup kosher salt dissolved in 4 cups water. This is all the time you need for the chicken breasts to absorb enough moisture so they can better hold up to the heat of the grill without drying out.
How long should curry simmer for?
Bring the mixture to a simmer and let the flavors meld for about 5 minutes. If you’re using meat, add the browned meat back to the simmering sauce and turn the heat down to low. Cover the skillet and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until the meat is cooked through and tender.
Why is my chicken curry not tasty?
If you don’t fry the onion well or over fry it, it will affect the taste of your curry. Believe it or not, freshly prepared spices do make a lot of difference when adding flavor to the chicken curry or any curry.
How do you thicken up a curry?

- Add ground nuts.
- Add lentils.
- Add peanut butter.
- Add a tomato product.
- Start with a roux.
- Use a slurry.
Why is my grilled chicken dry?
Any lean cut of poultry or meat will tend to dry out during grilling. The darker meat, chicken drumsticks and thighs have more fat to keep them moist so these are more forgiving. With chicken breasts, it helps to brine or marinate it first.
