30 minutes Chettinad Chicken exclusively in Neethu's Kitchen! YOU MUST TRY THIS ONE....Truly a DELISH and so soo sooo EASY TO MAKE!
1 pound chicken
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
9-10 red chillies
1/2 tblsp fennel seeds
1 cup finely chopped onions
1 cup finely chopped tomatoes
2 tblsp oil
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1.Marinate the chicken with Salt and turmeric. Keep aside.
2. Add oil in a pan. Then add fennel seeds and broken red chillies. Saute for 1 minute. Do not burn them.
3. Add onions and saute for another 4 minutes until they become brown.
4. Add the tomatoes and saute for 3 minutes or until they have blended well like the picture below.
5. Add the marinated chicken and mix them properly. Sprinkle hot water once in a while ( i had to do around 3 times, depending on the pan you use) when sauteing the chicken. Keep it on medium high and let the chicken turn brown. Keep stirring the chicken so that they dont stick to the pan. If they do, you can add little bit of oil at the end. This would take around 10 to 15 minutes. Switch off the stove and sprinkle some fresh lemon juice and some cilantro leaves for garnish.
OMG! This dish is perfect as an appetizer or even with rice and yoghurt. My favorite is to have this with a cocktail. The Sweet and then the spicy combination is just YUUUUUUM and to die for!!...Thanks to my mom for this recipe :)
