How to Curry Fowl

Fowl is a domestic bird, but a yard chicken, with colored feathers is also considered a fowl.

The meat is tough like that of a wild bird, but very tasty. It can be curried or bunjal which is better.

This bird can be bought in some Supermarkets or from a live poultry outlet. The Poultry farm will prepare it for cooking.


  • 1 (5-6 lbs) Fowl
  • 3 tablespoons of curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1/2 tablespoon of ground turmeric
  • 2 medium onions (chopped)
  • 3/4 head of garlic
  • 1 large hot pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 potspoon of oil


Clean the Fowl and wash with 2 limes then set aside.

Add curry and all other ingredients (except oil and liquid smoke) into a bowl. Add 1 cup of water to the mixture and mix well.

Heat some oil in a pot or pan. Add the mixture and stir for 4-5 minutes.

Add the Fowl then stir in the mixture. Allow this to fry for 3-4 minutes. Add 2 cups of water and allow to simmer under medium heat for 5 minutes.

Add liquid smoke and stir. Then cover and allow this to simmer.

Add water if necessary until desired tenderness is reached. Allow it to simmer down until sauce is thick.

Wonderful anyhow and with anything.
