Chicken Pickle

Annita from My treasure My Pleasure inspired me to try chicken pickle after being successful trying her Fish pickle.the Recipe is almost the same as her fish pickle recipe, but i added few extra spices for this chicken version.This is the spicer chicken pickle ..


Chicken breast(diced) -5 (abt 2 lbs)
Ginger-Garlic paste - 2tbsp
Green Chillies Slit - 10
2tbsp Red Chilly Powder mixed with a little vinegar(to make it a smooth paste) - 1/4 cup
coriander powder-1tbsp
Garam masla - 1/2tsp
Vinegar - 3/4 cup
Curry leaves -1 sprig
Mustard Seeds - 2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - as needed

For marinating Chicken pieces

Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilly powder -1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp

Marinate the chicken pieces with turmeric, chilly and salt for abt 1 hour.Then deep fry them till golden brown and keep them aside.Switch off the stove.When the oil is slightly cooled take abt 1/4 cup oil from that and place it in a medium heat stove.Fry mustard and curry leaves.Add gg paste, green chillies and finally add the chilli powder-vinegar paste,coriander powder,garm masala.Fry for some min.s and add vinegar and salt.I slowly added the vinegar by tasting in between to check for sourness.Add water if needed.Let this come to boil, which takes abt 3 min.s .Now add the chicken pieces and mix well.Let it boil again for 5 min.s.Switch off the stove and cool it.Store it in an air tight container.Beware this is little bit spicer...
