Chili Chili Chicken Chicken

It is the hottest time of the summer season and also the time when all schools, colleges and universities break-up for summer holidays. My cousins and I were done with our exams and were finally meeting after a long time at my house. But this time we decided to experiment. We decided the eldest (four of us) would cook ourselves and party. It was an amazing experience. We all cooked our specialties; I made chili chicken. Now, call it fate or luck. My dish was the hot selling one! Everyone loved it… so it thought I must share this simple, nothing-so-special recipe with my readers.

  • Chicken – 2 kgs
  • Tomatoes – 2
  • Green chili – 5-6 nos.
  • Coriander powder – ½ tsp
  • Jeera powder – ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ¾ tsp
  • Garlic paste – 2 tbsp
  • Onions and garlic – 7 medium sized onions,1 garlic
  • Garam Masala (cloves, cinnamon, elaichi) – ¾ tsp (crushed powder)
  • Soya sauce, chili sauce, tomato sauce.
  • Salt to taste

  • Cut the tomatoes into halves and scoop out the seeds and throw them away. Chop the remaining tomatoes finely.
  • Onions and chilies to be chopped. Garlic should be peeled and crushed.
  • Sauté half of the onions and half of the chilies in 4 tbsp refined oil in medium flame. Add the garlic paste, coriander powder, jeera powder, turmeric powder and tomatoes. Stir and fry them with a lid covered until the tomatoes almost dissolve.
  • Add the fresh chicken pieces, stir and cover the utensil again. This should be done in medium flame. Do not disturb for the next 7-8 minutes.
  • Add a bit of soya sauce and chili sauce. Then add the remaining chopped onions and chilies, add a bit of water (½ a cup), stir and cover with the lid again. Leave it like that for 8-9 minutes.
  • Add 2 cups of water, then add tomato ketchup and salt to taste. Let it boil for 4-5 minutes. Add a bit of water if necessary and let it boil again.
  • Your chili chicken is ready to eat.
