We both finished our lunch and turned towards the hostess. Very delicious biryani! She gazed at us, her eyes expanded. Oh God, really ? Here everyone eats and leaves the place without telling any word!
Appreciating some one for some thing always makes significant changes. What we lose if saying few words of gratitude? Start with your kids, parents, wife , husband or other family members. Extend it out of the family. See the difference occur in the relationship.
I would regularly get few mails of appreciation from some readers, I read and really enjoy them. Some remains in the memory, that is the power of appreciative words, work as a tonic! My special thanks to the Dr from Calicut, who works in US since 30 years - spent little of his precious time for writing about salkkaaram, Ms Riya from Bangalore who has a helpful mind left a note with few points which are the reason for her love towards Salkkaaram , Nimi and Zeb who are with Salkkaaram from the beginning and to all other readers who visit here..
I hope you will love this chicken stew, you may get one with whitish color. I believe turmeric has the ability to remove all poisonous matters from the food, so added little, hence this colour.. :)
chicken cut and cleaned 500g / 1/2 kg
onions 2 medium
tomato 2 small
curry leaves few
coriander leaves chopped few
garlic paste 2 tsp
ginger paste 2 tsp
green chillies 2
garam masala 1 tsp
pepper powder 2 tsp
coconut milk thin 2 cups
coconut grated 1/2 cup
couscous 1 tsp
lemon juice 1 tsp
This is the way I did,
Grind coconut with couscous in little water to make a smooth solution.
Approx. 3/4 cup or water is enough for this.
Chop onion, tomato, green chillies etc.
Heat oil, saute onion.
When transparent, add garlic and ginger paste.
Stir well for few seconds, add chicken, salt, pepper powder, garam masala ,curry leaves and tomatoes.
Pour coconut milk and allow to cook.
Cook until chicken is done, add more coconut milk if needed.
When the chicken is cooked well, pour the blended coconut+coucous solution to that.
Mix well allow to boil.
Add lemon juice, check salt and remove from fire.
Sprinkle coriander leaves on top.
