How to make Chicken chili – Nepali Style

This used to be one of my favourite entrée served in Nepali wedding parties back in the day when I was a kid. I still love them and I learned this from my BIL, my cousin K didi’s husband. It is simple, quick and yummy.

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breast, boneless
  • 1 Spanish Onion
  • 1 large capsicum
  • 4 Green chilli
  • 2 big tomatoes
  • 1 table-spoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 table-spoon turmeric powder
  • 1 table-spoon cumin seed
  • 3 table-spoon Tomato ketchup
  • 2 table-spoon plain flour
  • 1 table-spoon ginger garlic paste
  • Few stems of green shallot chopped
  • 1 small bunch of fresh chopped coriander
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic crushed
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger crushed
  • 1 egg
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil to fry

Steps

  • Cut the onion into quarters and take off each skin one by one.

  • Cut capsicum and tomatoes around 1 inch square in size.

  • Cut the chicken breast around 1 inch square in size.

  • Cut the green chili into 2 pieces length wise,
  • Put chicken breast in a big bowl and mix well with cumin, chilli, turmeric powder, salt and ginger garlic paste.

  • Then add plain flour and egg and mix it. Make sure to coat all the chicken pieces well.

  • Heat oil in a pan.

  • Fry the marinated chicken cubes in the oil.

  • Once it turns golden brown, take it out from the heat and put aside.

  • In a wok heat 2 tablespoon of oil and add sliced green chilli, cumin seed, crushed ginger and  garlic and fry for about a minute.

  • Add tomato ketchup in the wok and let it cook for a few minutes.

  • Add fried chicken and mix it well with the sauce.

  • Now add Spanish onion, tomatoes and capsicum.

  • Give it a quick toss we don’t want the onion to cook.

  • Add green shallot and coriander and give it a quick toss and take it off the heat.

  • Serve it as an entrée or with rice.
