Shredded Chilly Chicken

We food bloggers are compelled to watermark our pictures more than once because of plagiarism! I found many of the blogger's food pictures are copied and re-watermarked! Recently a friend sent one link to a mallu site who has stolen some of the photos from the food blogs. They do not find any problem in republishing it even without changing my "simple and delicious!" watermark! Though we left comments there, we didn't get any response. Bloggers who wish to check there , please mail me for the link..
This is a simple chilly chicken recipe, which you can try out with chicken pieces from the leftover chicken curry. I had it once from a friend's house but when I wanted to make the dish once I couldn't contact her. So I tried it my self thinking of the ingredients she used to tell me.. I hope to post it again if I get the actual recipe.. This one is very good with chapatti breads and kubus.. You can make sandwiches also using this dish..

garlic and ginger paste 1 tsp
garam masala 1/2 tsp

How to prepare

  9. I generally don't like shredded chicken dishes but yours looks enticing and I like that it is chilly-spiced.

  10. Looks good, Seena. I especially like the addition of lots of cilantro (coriander) to the chicken, as it happens to be my favorite herb. Cheers:)

    I used to prepare in the same way except adding capsicum pieces and frying the chicken in the oil with masalas. Your version is healthy one.


  14. Thank you Fasna,
    There is one more recipe for simple chilly chicken with capsicum is waiting among the drafts.. :) I should try your version too.. keep in touch.. :)

  15. Hi Seena,
    Am a new subscriber to your blog. I have tried a couple of recipes and I think your style is a great blend of traditional mallu and yet uniquely innovative!
    About plaigiarism- I am a new blogger, my blog is In fact I have still not watermarked my pics. I used to wonder why you had watermarked your pics twice, now I understand. However if it still doesnt stop people from stealing I am wondering whether watermarking makes any difference at all. Do give me your valuable opinion as an experienced blogger.

  16. Shirley, Welcome!
    visited your blog, your recipes are very nice!
    About watermarking pictures, it can't prevent plagiarism ,but at least we can tell them to remove it.. :)

  17. Mashallah! I loved this recipe! It has very little spices and hence is a very healthy version of other recipes out there.

    I was searching for such a recipe to use my left-over roasted chicken that I had and this was perfect! I added some tomatoes as I needed a little gravy and threw in some capsicum towards the end for some color and crunch, end result yum yum yum!

    Thanks Seena for your lovely recipe, jazakillah kheir :)
