Hi everybody! This is my very first blog post and l i am super excited! My passion lies in the world of cooking and I would love to share my recipes with you.
The first recipe I am going to share with you is a family favourite, made by grand mother.
Chilli chicken as we know is a speciality of the Chinese,but here I am giving it an indian touch.Hope you wonderful people like the recipe.
500 gms chicken (with or without bones)
2 onions sliced (medium sized)
1 capsicum sliced (medium sized)
2-3 tbsp dark soya sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
3 green chillies
5 chunks of garlic (finely chopped)
ginger (slice 4-5 strips)
2 tsp cornflour
2tbsp tomato sauce
1/2 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
1. Heat oil in a pan and put the finely chopped garlic into it.When the garlic starts to change color add the onions and green chillies.
2.When you see the onions turn pink immediately put the chicken into the pan.Fry it on high flame for two minutes and then put it on medium flame.
3.Add the strips of ginger and salt to the chicken and just mix well.Cover with a lid and let the chicken cook.
4.On the other hand take a bowl. Put the dark soya sauce,sugar,tomato sauce,cornflour and little water (say 2tbspn) into the bowl and mix well.
5.Once the chicken is done, you can add the mixture which you have prepared in the bowl.
6.Now add the capsicum.
7.Let the chicken cook for ten to fifteen minutes.
8.Add the vinegar to the chicken and toss well.
9.Finally you can serve hot with fried rice.
1.Putting soya sauce towards the end is always better since its taste enhances.
2.Add less salt as soya sauce itself contains certain percentage of salt.
3.Always put ginger after the onions and garlic,the taste is better.
4.Do not overcook onions and capsicum.
5. I know so many people deep fry the chicken before making the curry of the chilli chicken. However from health perspective I refrain from doing so.
I hope you people try and enjoy this recipe. Please share your thoughts in the comments below!
