I have this undying interest to make a new chicken dish every time I cook chicken at home. Sometimes it comes out well and sometimes it becomes a flop. Since V only eats dry chicken dishes, that is what I cook 99% of the time. This is one such dish I tried recently. It came out really well, so I tried it again for a small get together at home. Our friend’s two year old daughter loved this, which was a pleasant surprise considering it was pretty hot. It literally takes about 20mins to prepare this dish.
1 lb(half kg approx) boneless chicken breast
1 tea spn garam masala
5 green chillies (increase or decrease according to spiciness of the chillies)
1 tbl spn ginger pieces
A pinch turmeric
1 tea spn garlic pieces
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped tomato
Grind green chillies and ginger to a paste. Drain any extra water from chicken pieces. Add this paste, garam masala, turmeric, salt to chicken pieces and mix well. Leave it aside for about 15mins.
Heat oil and add garlic. When they turn brownish, add onions and fry till they turn brown. Add chicken pieces and cook for about 3-4mins. Now add tomato pieces, cover and cook till chicken is completely cooked.
Remove the lid and keep stirring the pieces on a high heat till all the water is evaporated and pieces get a nice thick coating of masala.
Serve hot as a starter or with rotis/chapatis.
Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 20mins
