Anthony’s Desi Chili Chicken

I like Chinese Dishes, if it is cooked properly.
I like their prawn dishes, and I always order Chowmein with gravy.
The one they serve with lots of steamed vegetables , the noodles baked at best, but not fried in that horrible mix of Oil and Soya sauce. Somehow, I don’t like soya sauce with every dish. Sans the Soya, Chilli Chicken tastes great.
I like cooking in different ways and my Kitchen is a Laboratory, I had even posted a healthy Chicken dish cooked without oil, in my previous Blog. By the way, I might move to TypePad soon. Without categories, a recipe blog don’t look like a cook blog.

OK, the Chicken Chilli, oh yeah, I promise I will put up the pictures soon. I always forget to photograph them. This is a very simple recipe. You could cook it today..

Half a kilo of chicken cut small, an inch cube.
1 tsp each Whole Jeera and powder,
1 tsp coriander powder.
A pinch of heeng( Asafoetida)
Dried Kasuri Meethi.
1 inch finger of ginger and about 15 cloves of garlic Chopped well.
5-10 Green Chillis, sliced in halves ( the more the hotter, not necessarily tastier).Use depending upon your capacity to withstand ;-)


1. Heat 2 Tbs oil in a deep non-stick kadhai (for this U don’t need a Aluminium or cast iron kadhai Like I always suggest, non stick works just fine).

2. Add the Whole Jeera and let it crackle, then add a pinch of heeng.
3. Add the Chicken, and keep tossing with a wooden Spatula.
(Water will come out of the chicken.)
4. Add salt to taste.

Fry the chicken till meat and oil separates.
5. Add the Green Chilli and chopped ginger-garlic.
Fry for about 10 minutes, keep tossing
6. Add the Kasuri Meethi, then Sprinkle the jeera and dhania powder.
It will be done After 5 minutes. Garnish with coriander.
Eat with Dal and Rice. Yummmm

@ gili: Thx for visiting. It is the dried leaves of meethi(fenugreek). the dis is just fine without that. I added it because I had bought a huge packet of the same and have been adding in every dish. LOL it gives a nice flavour and it is suppose to be good for health
