This recipe from my dear friend S's recipe collection.Thanks to her, for lending me such a nice collection recipes.I always have a double mind while adding yogurt to a dish, as from my previous not-so-good experiences, the dish turns out to be a little bitter.But this time it came out really well.As turned the heat to low while adding the yogurt mixture, this helped.I am sending this to Srivalli's Curry Mela.
Chicken breasts - 4 ( cut into small pieces)
Garlic - 5 cloves
Ginger - 1 1/2 in ch piece
Onion - 2 (medium sized)(chopped)
Chilli powder - 2 tbsp
Coriander powder - 1 tbsp
Jeera powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Yogurt - 3 tbsp (well beaten)
Cardamom - 3
Cloves - 3
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Crushed Tomato - 1 cup
Salt - as needed
Kasuri methi - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - for garnishing
Oil - 3 tbsp
Marinate minced garlic in yogurt for about 15 minutes.In a pan, heat oil and fry 1 chopped onion.Fry till they are translucent.Now add chilli,coriander and jeera powder.Fry till the raw smell goes away.Grind this mix into a paste.In a heavy bottomed pan, heat oil and fry cardamom, cloves and then add the second chopped onion.Once onions are fried ,add minced ginger.Saute well and then add the grounded onion mixture.Saute well till the oil separates.Now reduce the heat to medium low and slowly , one spoon at a time, add the garlic yogurt mix.Keep stirring continuously until the whole yogurt mix is well Incorporated into the gravy.Now add the crushed tomatoes,sugar and salt.Finally add the chicken pieces.Cook till the chicken is cooked through and gravy thickens.finally add the kasuri methi.When the gravy is thick enough , switch off the heat.Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.Serve hot with roti,naan or rice.
The Sun juice
I know the name sounds interesting..but this is what came thru my mind when i finished blending this juice.This YUM yellow color juice is the product of blending mango and pineapple.
Ripe Mango pieces - 1 cup
Pineapple pieces - 1 cup
Sugar - as needed (optional)
Blend mango and pineapple together well in a blender until smooth.Add sugar if it is not sweet enough for you.Strain the blended juice, if needed.
