Creamy Chicken Curry Spaghetti

Do you also come up with kickass recipes while experimenting with leftover food??

This is one such recipe. I had a simple chicken curry leftover on the weekend but I didn’t want to eat it with Roti or Rice so I decided to throw in some Spaghetti and Boy oh Boy, it was so good, I couldn’t resist making it again today and sharing with you

I love fusion food but this one was an unintentional experiment that is going to be pretty intentional from now on. So let’s dive into making this super easy and incredibly delicious spaghetti

For 1 large serving you’ll need:

1 small chicken breast – cut into small cubes and marinated for atleast 30 mins in 1/2 tsp each of salt, turmeric powder, pepper, red chilli powder, chicken masala

½ medium yellow onion finely chopped

1 dry red chilly – optional

2 tbsp tomato paste

1 tbsp heavy cream

1/3rd cup warm water

1 tbsp oil

½ tbsp butter

4-5 chopped basil leaves

4-5 cherry tomatoes halved

1 cup Spaghetti al dente (1 cup is cooked quantity)

Spices as per taste – salt, pepper, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, chicken masala, garam masala


In a pan, on medium heat, add oil and once its hot, add the onion

Saute the onion for 3-4 mins till golden brown. Add salt, dry red chilli and saute for another minute

Now add tomato paste and mix everything together. Add the spices (except Garam Masala) and cook until the masalas are aromatic

Now add the marinated chicken chunks and on medium high heat cook for about 2 mins on each side until tender

Now reduce the heat to medium low and add water, cream and butter, cherry tomatoes and chopped basil leaves

Cook for about 2-3 mins till the gravy thickens and then add the spaghetti, pinch of garam masala and toss thoroughly

Remove off the stove and Serve hot! Fusion food from leftovers? Yes Please!!
