Dahi chicken is a popular Indian recipe that combines succulent chicken pieces with a creamy yogurt sauce. It’s a flavorful and easy-to-make dish that’s perfect for a weeknight dinner or a weekend lunch. In this article, I’ll walk you through a step-by-step recipe for making dahi chicken at home.

Here is a breakfast recipe that is easy to prepare and delicious to eat.


  • 500g chicken pieces (bone-in or boneless)
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (dahi)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Fresh coriander leaves, for garnish


  • Marinate the chicken: In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt, ginger paste, garlic paste, cumin seeds, coriander powder, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, and salt. Add the chicken pieces and mix well to coat them with the marinade. Cover the bowl with a cling wrap and let it marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  • Cook the chicken: Heat the oil in a large skillet or a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent. Add the chopped tomato and green chillies and cook until the tomatoes turn soft.
  • Add the marinated chicken to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink. Stir occasionally to prevent the chicken from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Simmer the chicken in the yogurt sauce: Reduce the heat to low and add the remaining marinade to the pan. Stir well to combine everything. Cover the pan with a lid and let the chicken cook for 10-12 minutes or until it’s fully cooked and tender.
  • Garnish and serve: Once the chicken is cooked, turn off the heat and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with rice or roti.


  • You can use bone-in or boneless chicken for this recipe. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  • Use plain yogurt (dahi) for the sauce. Avoid using flavored yogurt as it can alter the taste of the dish.
  • Adjust the amount of green chillies according to your taste preference. If you like your food spicy, add more green chillies or some red chilli powder.
  • You can make the marinade a day ahead and store it in the fridge. This will allow the flavors to develop and make the chicken even more flavorful.
  • If the sauce is too thick, you can add a little water or milk to thin it out.


In conclusion, dahi chicken is a delicious and simple dish that’s perfect for any occasion. The combination of tender chicken and creamy yogurt sauce is sure to please everyone’s taste buds. So, give this recipe a try and impress your family and friends with your cooking skills!
