Chicken Masala

Chicken Masala

I do not make much of non-vegetarian dishes at home ...is not that I eat outside much too.  To be truthful this must be 2nd or 3rd dish made in my kitchen.  This chicken masala was prepared by DH I just did the cutting part. The recipe followed here is almost identical to prawn masala and it's tasted so awesome.  The smell and taste was exactly better than Anjappar chicken, perhaps this will give me more inspiration to cook non-vegg :)


Serves 2-3 people
Ingredients:

Chicken Breast - 250gms
Onion - 2 large
Tomato - 1 large
Green Chili - 2
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 1/2 tsp
Tandoori/Chicken Masala - 1 tsp
Cilantro- 2 tbsp chopped
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Water - 1 to 1.5 cup

To Marinate:
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp 
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger-Garlic Paste -1 tsp
Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp
Salt  - 1/2 tsp


Method:

1. Clean, wash and marinate chicken pieces with all the ingredients listed in marination list.  Keep aside for 15-30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile chop onion, tomato, chili, cilantro and keep aside.

3. In a pan heat oil add onion and saute for 1 minute, add ginger-garlic paste, chili and mix well, saute until onion becomes transparent. 

4.  Add all the spice powders and stir well, cook for 5 minute in medium heat.  Now add tomato, salt (be careful with salt since we added in marination too) and cook until tomato becomes tender and oil comes on top.

5. Add marinated chicken and give good stir, cook for 5-7 minutes in medium-slow heat.  Add 1 cup water and cook until chicken becomes tender and cooked, stir in intervals.. it takes around 10-15 minutes in slow to medium heat.  If required add more 1/2 cup of water. 
Adjust salt n spices if required.  We kept minimal gravy since I like this way ..you can keep little gravy if you want. Garnish with cilantro.

Serve with steaming rice or hot chapati, it goes well with almost everything.  We had with steamed rice.


Have good day ~~
