Wishing everyone a very happy New Year!! And one of resolution this year is to try and post at least one entry every two weeks at least. Being busy with my kids, which I do love keeps me so pre-occupied that I don't get to do anything else... This is my first entry for this year and this was something that just came out good and it was good too. At my Indian Store here we get fresh whole chicken which is really tender and good.
All I wanted to make was some stir fried chicken to go with my sauteed veggies, but I added a little more salt my mistake and it became too salty. Now the only way was to re-engineer the dish. So this is what I came up with...
Do try it out and bon apetite...
You will need:-
Chicken - 1 lb
Red chili flakes - 1/2 tsp
Balsamic vinegar - 1/4 tsp
Any spice rub - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Soy sauce - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Mix it all together and let it stay for 30mins.In a kadai pour very little oil or use cooking spray and then add the marinated chicken to it and let it cook completely.
In the mean time chop :-
Red onion - 1 big
Tomatoes - 4 sliced
Green chilies - 8 sliced in two
Coconut milk powder - 2 tbsp (mixed with one glass of water)
Chili powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
In a kadai pour a little oil and when hot add the chopped onions, tomatoes, garam masala and green chilies and saute until fully cooked.
Add the chili powder and salt. Make sure you add little salt as the chicken already has salt.
Now pour half a glass of water and let it simmer till the oil separates.
Add the cooked chicken and mix it well, cover and let it cook for 5minutes.
Pour the coconut milk and reduce the heat to a little less that medium. Stir well, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Make note to stir it in between.
Once fully done sprinkle with chopped cilantro and mix it well and cover and set it aside. The gravy will be a little thick, if you want it to have more gravy just add more coconut milk while simmering...
Serve hot with rice or aapams or rotis....You can reduce the green chilies or the chili powder if you want it to be less spicy and in that case you can reduce the coconut milk also to make sure the curry doesn't become more sweet..
I shall add the picture soon...
