It has been a few days that my hubby wanted to eat typical daal bhaat, aachar and masu. Normally we don’t eat rice at home so yesterday I decided to make him the Nepali meal. So I cooked this simple chicken recipe.
- Chicken, about 1.5 kg, cut into medium sized pieces
- 2 large onions, finely chopped
- 2 tomatoes diced
- 2 fresh green chilies
- 2 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
- 8 teaspoon olive oil
- 3 teaspoon cumin powder
- 2 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon turmeric power
- A few curry leaves
- Salt as per taste
- Remove the skin from the chicken.(optional)
- Season the pieces with 3 tablespoons of oil, salt, chilli, turmeric, coriander and cumin powder.
- Set aside for at least an half hour.
- Heat rest oil in a frying pan. Add the chicken pieces and cook until brown on all sides; usually 6–8 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate.
- Dice the tomatoes and green chillies, make a puree, and set aside.
- In a pan, add remaining oil, throw in the garlic ginger paste, and curry leaves.
- Then add the onions and fry for 15 minutes or until golden brown, stirring regularly.
- Once onion is cooked, pour the tomato puree and let it cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. If the sauce reduces significantly, add some water.
- Mix well and add the chicken. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes, or until tender.
- The delicious chicken curry is ready and it can be served with rice or roti.
