Every friday night is celebration time and what is better than chicken??
I try to make either chinese, or mexican or some other snack type item on friday. It has to be very spicy and very hot. I saw this recipe on Shilpa's blog Aayisrecipes. She has a wonderful collection of non-veg recipes. This is very easy to make and yummy too. Thanks Shilpa.
This is Shilpa's recipe. I made some changes which are mentioned in brackets
1/4 lb boneless chicken
A pinch turmeric
1 tbl spn thick yogurt (i used more yougurt about 2-3 tblsp)
1 tea spn ginger paste
1 tea spn garlic paste
1/2 tea spn chili powder (I used about 2 tsp kashmiri red chili powder)
1 tea spn pepper powder
15-20 curry leaves
Apply ginger-garlic paste, chili powder, 1/2 tea spn pepper powder, salt, yogurt to chicken and leave it aside for about 2-3hrs.
Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is steaming hot, add the marinated chicken (i added gried red chilies broken in 2 before adding the cjicken). Cook for 5-6mins from both sides (do not add any extra water). When the chicken is almost half done, add 1/2 tea spn pepper powder, curry leaves (cut into two), cover and cook till chicken is completely done. (Add coriander leaves and lemon juice)
