Welcome to my Blog

Hmm you'll say...yet another food blog! And I'll beg to differ, although I must say my recipes are not hi-funda, and sometimes the pictures do not do justice to them (I'm working on that) but you'll find them extremely easy to cook, hassle free and down right delicious.
So if you are a newbie in the kitchen department or has not ventured into the kitchen for some strange reason (like me)...then you have come to the right place.

Happy Cooking!

Tomato Chicken

Click to enlarge image

Here is one recipe that I can wholly take credit of. I mixed up couple ingredients and the end result was simply delicious.

4-6 medium sized tomatoes
1 lb boneless chicken, cut in cubes
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 tbs oil
1 green chilli
cilantro for garnish

For tempering:
5-6 curry leaves
1 tsp each, cumin and coriander seeds

Heat oil in a deep pan and add cumin and coriander seeds as they begin to splutter add the curry leaves. Slip in the onions and stir briskly, as the onions turns slightly golden brown add the ginger garlic paste and continue stirring. Put the salt, red chilli powder, turmeric and green chilli and let the spices coat the onions. As soon as oil starts to seperate from the spices, add the tomatoes, if you are using Campari tomatoes, add just a little amount of water, maybe half a cup.

Finally add chicken along with 1/2 cup water. Place a lid and let in cook for sometime, or until the chicken is tender and has absorbed the flavors well. Serve hot with either rice or naan.
