Uncivilized Chicken (Jungly Murgi)


  • 1 pound bone-in chicken pieces (such as drumsticks or thighs)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small chili pepper, minced (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) coconut milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup diced fresh tomatoes
  • 1 cup diced fresh bell peppers
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the chili pepper (if using), curry powder, cumin, turmeric, and salt and cook for an additional minute.
  3. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the coconut milk, chicken broth, tomatoes, and bell peppers. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Stir in the spinach and cook until it is wilted, about 2 minutes.
  6. Garnish the curry with cilantro and serve hot. Enjoy!
