As everyone is sharing their recipes I'd like to share one which I love. Who knows if I meet someone from you lot, you might be able to cook one for me
. [please note: this is copied from the internet, I don't have a clue what stuff is in there and where to get them and how to cook it. All I know is, its very tasty to eat ]
Chicken = One, cut in 12 pieces
Oil = Around 3/4 cup (but if you want use less up to you)
Ginger/ Garlic paste = 1 table spoon each
Cumin seed powder = 1, 1 1/2 tea spoons (upto you, can put one or more)
Salt = 3/4 tea spoon is usually enough for one chicken
Red chili powder = Around 1 tea spoon
Onions = 2 large
Yogurt = 3 pao (I think there are four pao in a kg, so that would be 3/4 kg)
Green chillies = 4-5 nicely chopped Recipe:
As always fry the onions in the oil till they are brown, then put ginger and garlic paste and stir a little, after that add the chicken, cook it until the water of the meat dries and it becomes tender.
Add salt and red chili powder in the yogurt and put it in the chicken. If you galofied your chicken completely before then you can cook it on high heat to evaporate the yogurt water, otherwise cook on medium. When half the yogurt has dried, put in cumin seed powder. Trick part
Instead of adding methi dana, saunf kalongi and other achar masalas I take masala from achar(Pickle). Take about 3 tea spoons of Achar masala (from any brand of achar(pickle) bottle) and put it in the chicken when the water from yogurt has dried. This is the time to bhoono fry (I am sure you all know how to do it) When it has been bhonofied add chopped green chillies and a little Garam masala.
It tastes best with tandoor ki roti (Oven cooked pita bread).
I am not sure if this will make sense to you all, however as I said it's not mine so don't know what is happening in there but what I do know that it comes out pretty hot and spicy! Hmmm I am already feeling hungry!!
