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!

Coconut Cilantro Chicken

Click to enlarge image

Now here is one recipe which will undoubtedly make your family drool...an exquisite combination of flavors which will leave you wanting for more.

Well I got a little carried away with all that Cilantro :p

2 lb boneless chicken
1 onion
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
2-3 tsp salt
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
13.5 oz can coconut milk
3 green chilli
6 cardamom
1 stick cinnamon
1 tsp black cumin seeds
1 cup water
almost 2 bunches of cilantro or more

Clean the chicken of excess fat and cut into bite size pieces. Chop the onion finely.

Heat oil and add the cardamoms, cinnamon and black cumin seeds. Add green chilli and the chopped onion and as it starts to turn slightly brown put ginger garlic paste and stir in briskly.

Sprinkle salt and red chilli powder and immediately add the chicken cubes. Stir it well and make sure the chicken is coated well in the mixture.

Now add coconut milk and water along with half the cilantro, mix it well and shut the lid. Keep checking to see if the chicken is cooked through.

Add more water if you want it a little extra gravy. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and serve hot with either rice or naan.

i am already drooling on this recipe. There is never such a thing as too much corriander. its such a mild herb , it'll never spoil a dish. in this case , it would've tasted just perfect.
