Sometimes we all are short for time and need to make something delicious to eat or we feel like eating something yummy!! Well i go through these bouts ever so often and am often short of time so i try to create delicious and quick food. This is one of those recipes that i visioned and it turned out exceptionally well. This also freezes very well so if you want to make a large batch and freeze them its absolutely perfect. I made it with oil but if you want to give it a “desi” restaurant touch all you need to do is cook it with half butter or ghee. I will write down the detailled recipe of how to make it step by step and save time!! I find that making rice and then getting the chicken together at the same time saves time!!!
1st put the rice to boil and now get to making this delicious chicken!!
3 chicken legs and thighs, skin removed and cut into pieces(in the supermarkets they already sell trays of these)
1 large onion chopped fine
1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste or more if you like the taste
1-2 tablespoons of Nitu Didi tandoori spice powder
1/2 teaspoon of paprika powder
6 tablespoons of tomato paste
2-3 tablespoons of ketchup
salt to taste
chopped green chillies and coriander leaves
4 tablespoons of oil or butter or ghee
METHOD: while the rice is boiling heat a deep casserole and add the oil (if adding butter take care not to burn it). Add the chopped onion and salt and sautee till onion is transparent. Then add the ginger garlic paste and sautee for a minute and then add the chopped chicken and cover. Let the chicken cook in its own juices and you will see the chicken begin to brown . Add the spices and the tomato paste and mix well. If the chicken is tender it should be cooked by now…If not then add a cup of water and bring it to a boil and cook till chicken is done. Add the ketchup and the green chillies and coriander leaves. If you need more gravy just increase the amount of water. Serve hot with boiled rice (the rice would have been made by the time the chicken cooks)
