This is my 1st recipe for this category where i will show you how to cook OIL FREE AND DELICIOUS FOOD. If you are counting calories, or just dont like oily food or even have a high cholesterol count.. believe me OIL FREE RECIPES dont have to be boiled and boring.. You can make certain foods delicious without ANY OIL.. for an even more low calorie recipe i suggest you use just whole chicken breast instead of the whole chicken that i have done in this recipe
1 whole chicken , skin removed, about 2 kilos (4lb more or less) of weight
have the skin removed from the chicken and make cuts all over it so the marinade can penetrate into it. I told the meatman to halve the chicken and i laid it on my pressure cooker to marinate it.
FOR THE MARINADE:
2 cups white yoghurt, can be non fat or even soya yoghurt according to your needs
4 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 whole pod of garlic
1 piece of ginger, like say 2 ”
green chillies to taste, and if you dont want it hot then some green capsicum
4 tablespoons of chopped coriander leaves
1 small red onion
All this goes into the blender and is made into a smooth paste
Now for the spices:
2 tablespoons of NITU DIDI CORIANDER POWDER
1 tablespoon of NITU DIDI CUMIN POWDER
1 tablespoon of NITU DIDI GARAM MASALA POWDER (or more if you want it flavorful)
1 teaspoon of NITU DIDI TURMERIC POWDER
1 teaspoon of NITU DIDI PINCHO POWDER
salt to taste
Mix these spices into your yoghurt mixture and marinate the chicken overnight.
Next day pressure cook the whole chicken with all the marinade. Pressure cook it for about 10 minutes. This ensures the chicken will be done and will save on oven cooking time.
TIP: i marinate it in the pressure cooker itself so i save on washing up 🙂
FOR THE FINISHING TOUCH:
transfer the chicken into an oven proof dish with all the liquid and put it into a hot oven for about 10 minutes each side to grill and get crispy
ENJOY WITH A SALAD OR A LOAF OF YOUR FAVOURITE BREAD
THIS CHICKEN IS SOO DELICIOUS IT WILL SPICE UP ANY BORING DIET!!!
how much water to add while pressure cooking??
I did not add any water, because the chicken we get in spain is quite tender and cooks quickly, if you want you can add about 1/2 cup of water
