How to make Curry Sauce (11 Easy Steps)

Have you eaten curry sauce before? You may want to try this stew, it is new to me, my friend made me eat her sauce. She made me always crave curry in my food. Do not get me wrong, I am not so addicted to it to put it in my soup.
I have seen a lot of people use curry for different foods, so that day I asked my friend to make noodles and she added curry to the noodles, I didn’t know how I felt seeing her do that, but I know I wasn’t going to eat that noodles. Well, my friend is really stubborn, she forced me to try her noodles and it wasn’t bad at all.
Oh, were you expecting me to say I didn’t eat it after her pressure, I ate it because she wasn’t going to let me try another food? But the noodles weren’t so bad and I now make my noodle with curry sometimes.
This post is going to help you make your curry stew, all you have to do is follow the steps accordingly and use the ingredients mentioned below.  The thing about this soup is this, it is very easy to make, you just have to make up your mind about exploring this sauce if it is new to you.


These are the ingredients I use for my sauce but you can remove some of them if you do not like them and add the vegetables you prefer. Just make sure that there’s the carrot in there because it gives this sauce a rich delicious taste.

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 onion
  • 3 mushrooms
  • ½ green bell pepper
  • ½ red bell pepper
  • 6 lumps of chicken (soft chicken)
  • 1 tablespoon corn flour/starch (thickener)
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 big stock cubes
  • 2 teaspoons Nigerian curry powder
  • Salt to taste

Notes on the ingredients

  • I use soft chicken (cockerel or rooster) for this sauce because the sauce tastes better with it.
  • If you are in the USA, use corn starch. If you are in Nigeria, make sure the cornflour you use is very fine. The cornflour sold in Nigerian markets is not so fine.
  • The curry powder used in this sauce is the curry powder used in Nigerian recipes NOT the hot and spicy Indian curry.

Before you cook Curry Sauce

  1. Rinse all your vegetables very well. Scrape the carrot.
  2. Cut the mushrooms into thin slices
  3. Divide the onion into 2. Cut half into small pieces and cut the other half into long thin slices.
  4. Cut the red and green peppers into long thin slices.
  5. Cut the carrot into thin half-moons.

How to cook curry sauce

This is a step by step method of making curry sauce;

  1. Set the pieces of chicken in a pot.
  2. Add the stock cubes (crushed), thyme, and half of the onion that you cut into tiny pieces.
  3. Pour water to the same level as the contents of the pot and start cooking on high heat.
  4. While that is cooking, mix the cornflour/starch with a small quantity of water to get the consistency of evaporated milk. Or a little bit more watery than evaporated milk.
  5. When the chicken is cooked, take them off from the pot and set it aside. Leave the stock (water from cooking the chicken) in the pot.
  6. Add the curry powder, the carrot, and mushrooms
  7. Stir, cover, and continue cooking, again on high heat.
  8. Once it boils, add the peppers and the other half of the onion.
  9. Stir and continue cooking for 90 seconds.
  10. Add the thickener. Stir and add the chicken.
  11. Stir and add salt if necessary and it’s done!
