Using these ingredients, you’ll need to have a very large cooking area, or prepare it in smaller batches. Either way, it will work just fine:

Ingredients for Chicken Curry Recipes

1 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
8 onion, chopped
16 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup minced fresh ginger root
2 tablespoon ground tumeric
6+ cups water
16 green chile peppers, halved lengthwise
8 pounds cubed cooked poultry
3 tablespoons spicy red chili powder
1/4 cup garam masala
salt to taste


Heat up the cinnamon in the oil. Saute the onion with the other spices, cook until golden.

Add some of the water, and the rest of the ingredients. Continue cooking, covered, until the veggies are cooked through and meat is warmed up.

Keep adding water as needed. You want a nice, saucy mix - especially if you are going to be using a chafer and holding this at your party for a while. We’re recommending that you serve this over rice, so extra liquid is fine.

Here’s our recipe for Rice Pilaf. It is great, written for 50 people and will go nicely with the curry - or just about anything...!

We have another procedure for Chicken Curry. This is an appetizer for 24 people, with a very different, coconut twist! You’ll love it!

Curry itself is often seen as the 'taste of a household.' True Indian curries are seldom identical; they are similar, but each one carries it's own identity. This way, each household has it's own flavor. So the question is: What is the curry of your house?
