There’s this one dish that my Amma would make when it’s not chicken / fish curry day. It’s pretty similar to a chicken varuval (dry fried chicken), I guess. Nevertheless, this dish goes deliciously well with some Sothi and stir-fried vegetables. Here’s my version:
1 chicken, skin removed and cut into small pieces - marinated with 2 tbsp chicken curry powder, 1 tbsp turmeric and 2 tbsp @athenespices ginger garlic salt.
2 large potatoes, cut into cubes - marinated with 1 tbsp curry powder, 1 tsp turmeric and salt.
2 large onions, sliced
2 green / red chilies, halved lengthwise
2cm fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
3 sprigs of curry leaves
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 star anise
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp chicken curry powder
1 tbsp chili powder
Enough oil for shallow frying.
1. Fry the potatoes till golden brown and set aside.
2. Fry the chicken till golden brown and set aside.
3. Using the same oil from all that frying (remove some if it’s too much), sauté all the spices, onions, chilies, ginger, curry leaves till its soft and fragrant.
4. Add the curry and chili powder into the onion mix and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes.
5. Add the fried chicken into the mix, add salt and give it a good stir. Cover and let it cook for 5-7 minutes. This is just to make sure that the chicken gets cooked thoroughly while all the spices and flavours come together.
6. Add the fried potatoes and continue sautéing for another 5 mins or so. You want to have nice caramelised curry bits. Check for seasoning. Done!
Safe to say this one’s a winner because everything is gone and now I’ll have to make something for dinner! 😏#theviskitchen #chickenrecipes #winnerwinnerchickendinner #foodstagram #foodie #homesweethome #stayathome #malaysia #comfortfood #indianfood #thefeedfeed #easyrecipes #love
