I hadn't broad band internet connection since few days, thats why I couldn't publish or reply your comments in time, couldn't even visit your blogs also. Currently am using a Airtel dial-up connection through my mobile phone, which eats a major part of the recharging amount.. :)
When we were kids, our villagers hadn't any poultry shops nearby.Every one had some 'home-grown' chicken to meet their need.I have seen 'broiler chicken' used only for the wedding parties, for making a bulk amount of biryani.. Have heard elders saying about it 'nammude naadan kozheede ruchi onnu vere thanne.. ' I was not smart enough to understand the taste-difference, but always looked for the leg part (drum sticks) reserved for me.. I was very lucky in that since there was no one to fight for the drumsticks, since both my siblings didn't eat chicken.. :)
This time, I have brought a naadan chicken roast for you, which was enough to satisfy my teenage taste buds, but I don't get the exact taste now, perhaps, my taste buds also might have grown with me.. :)
Chicken pieces 1/2 kg
green chillies 2
curry leaves few
coriander leaves few chopped
garlic paste 1 tsp
ginger paste 1 tsp
lemon juice 2 tsp
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
chilly powder 2 tsp or as desired
garam masala powder 1/2 tsp
pepper powder as per taste
How I prepared
Marinate chicken with chilly powder, turmeric powder, salt, garlic and ginger paste,lemon juice and half of garam masala.
Shallow fry these chicken pieces after kept for half an hour.
Remove the chicken pieces from the pan when it turned red out side.
Saute finely chopped onion in the same oil used for frying chicken.
When onions are sauteed well and about red in color, add finely chopped tomatoes.
Saute until it is mashed well.
Add pepper powder and remaining garam masala powder.
Put chicken pieces in this and mix well.
Add enough salt too.
Reduce heat to a very low flame, place the lid and cook the chicken for some time.
You have to stirr this occasionally to prevent this from sticking to the pan.
After few minutes , the masala covers chicken pieces, the add green chilly slits,curry leaves and coriander leaves.
Stir well and remove from fire.
