OK OK, I saved this post in the draft for a rainy day.
Actually, I guess it in January, I had cooking fever. And I cooked a different dish, even two everyday for the Bachelor cooking. Somehow I couldn’t get to post all, so I saved some in the draft, and some, I had in a folder; the pictures, that is. Picture not yet edited for the Blog you see… I spent most of the Sunday editing pictures, and saving the pictures in draft. I also did a face lift of the template. So to say, I spent the Sunday working lol.
Umm, but I hadn’t written the posts.
As a blogger I also need to write some. Try hard to be funny too sometimes, though I know I am not; otherwise you won’t want to read me would you? And I am not the best photographer around, and seeing some food photography around the food blogs makes me want to quite at times lol. Like the ones at The delicious life.
Oh! That was a little bit of blogging… lol
Now, the recipe. So, as I was saying this was cooked long before the Avian Flu or bird flu. Anyway it is safe to eat Cooked bird since the virus die at 70 degrees, and I don’t eat chicken cooked at temperature below 70 degrees centigrade lol.
It is a different matter altogether that I had Mutton/Lamb korma Pizza yesterday, the first time ever in my life to have Lamb Pizza. Unfortunately, pepperoni wasn’t served, due to import restrictions, the server informed.
And Vegetarian pizza is something I am not quite used to, same as I am not used to Tofu based Kadhai Paneer.
But I love chicken stew, cooked in its own fat.
Yes, no oil whatsoever. Nada.
Heath freaks must love this.
How does one cook chicken without oil and make it taste like Chicken Tikka Masala. But then, you trust the Maharajah of Bachelor Cooking don’t you?
Trust me when I say it will taste as good as any Oil heavy concoction of Chicken meat. Bigger the chicken, more oily it will be and thus easier too cook. But I prefer medium sized chicken.
1. Half a Kilo of Chicken cut into 1 inch cubes.
2. One large Onion, roughly chopped.
3. 2 Large Tomatoes, roughly chopped.
4. 1 Tbs of ginger garlic paste ( Preferably freshly ground from 1 inch og ginger and 6-7 cloves of garlic)
5. 1 Tsp Black Pepper ground
6. 1 Tsp of red Chilli powder
7. 1 Tsp of Chicken Masala ( The supermarket variety- Everest, MDH etc)
8. One large Potato cut into 1 inch cubes and half cup of green peas.
1. Put the chicken in a pot or pan with 1 and half cup of Water, Put the Onions, Ginger-garlic paste and put to a boil till water almost dries.
2. When the water dries, stir the mixture well, just as you might sauté meat on a pan, on low heat. The whole thing will look like you are frying in oil after some time. Add salt to taste.
3. After sautéing in low heat for 5-10 minutes, add the pepper, tomatoes, green peas and potatoes and keep on stirring. Add the 1 TSP of chicken Masala.
4. Add two cups of water and cook in low heat till potatoes are cooked and stew is thick.
5. Garnish with Coriander.
