Chicken with Onion and Pepper: My Own Way
This is one of my quick recipes. I come home in the evening via the supermarket where I pick up something that I can cook without much home and have dinner as soon as possible.
Here is the recipe:--
Chicken 200gm – cut into very small pieces (I used chicken thigh)
Potato – one small
Onion – 100 grm – finely chopped
Ginger powder half a tea spoon
Garlic – 4/5 cloves crushed
Black pepper powder – two tea spoon (you can add more or less according to your taste.)
Tomato – one very small
Coconut oil -- one table spoon (you can you sun flower oil, too.)
Marinade the chicken in turmeric, salt, pepper, ginger powder. (I let it stand for half-an-hour.)
Cut the potato into cubes.
Put some of the coconut oil in the pan.
Add the potato cubes and let them fry.
In the meantime chop onion and crush garlic.
As soon as the potato turns golden, add onion and garlic. Stir a little.
When the onion starts turning golden, add the chicken.
Add the rest of the oil.
Cook the chicken by covering it and stirring occasionally.
Chop the tomato into thin slices.
Add the tomato when the chicken is almost done and stir well.
Cover the pan and let it cook till the chicken is softened.
(If you see, it is on the verge of burning, add a little water and cook. I cooked it without adding water. Or if you are a person who cannot eat rice without some gravy, add water.)
Serve with roti or rice.
