Indian Chicken Curry / Stew with Potatoes

This is the simplest way to make Indian Chicken Curry. Not too much oil and spices are used moderately. We did not use the regular Garam Masala; instead of the regular Garam Masala we used home-made cinnamon-cardamom powder. Cinnamon-cardamom powder is our traditional  Garam Masala powder recipe that we use in most of our Indian cooking. Do not waste time in making this powder, instead just use any regular  Garam Masala that is easily available off the shelf.

The spices (Cumin powder, Coriander powder, Turmeric Powder and Red Chilli Powder) used in this recipe are the most commonly used spices in Indian cooking. Since we do not like too much sourness in our curries we avoided the tomatoes, though most people use tomato in curries. The variation we did was by using yogurt instead of tomatoes.  Feel free to use tomatoes if you like it a little sour.

Adding the potatoes is optional but they really taste good. Think of it as big potato pieces cooked in chicken favored curry. Mostly we cook this recipe on weekend for lunch and tastes the best with hot steamed rice. Can be served with parathas and chapatis as well.

Please watch our video for the recipe and to see us cook this delightful curry.

Spicy chicken gizzards stir fry to go with booze

Who must try this:
1. If you are bored of eating chips, dips, nuts etc with your booze.
2. You want to eat and serve something new with your booze that’s easy and quick to make.
3. The moment you see a new recipe you feel inspired to cook it.

And in case, you are none of the above then also please go ahead and cook this recipe because it’s really simple and goes very well as a side with breads.

Chicken gizzards are zero carbs and all protein but beware it has high cholesterol so just do this on your binge days. Interestingly, if you have leftovers (only possible if your guests ditch you), just stuff them between bread slices along with a few slices of cucumber and onion to make a nice sandwich and take it to a picnic for lunch.

Watch out the video for the recipe. The music in the video is my favorite dj remix. Hope you will enjoy it as well.

Please pardon the spelling booboos in the video.

Chicken in Coriander Sauce

We found this recipe on  YouTube posted by vahchef. We did a little variation by adding onion paste in the recipe. Also, we used a little “Bengali Garam Masala” in it. It came out really well. I guess this recipe cannot be categorized under the cuisine of any particular Indian state. The gravy base and the flavors though are essentially Indian.

For all my veggie friends, replace the chicken with Paneer (fresh cottage cheese). I have tried this with Paneer also and it tastes awesome with Parathas.

Again captured this using my phone camera.

Notes:
1. Missed to show the “Bengali Garam Masala” in the video. Added 1 tsp of bengali garam masala before covering the skillet.
2. Bengali Garam Masala: A powder blend of cinnamon and green cardamom taken in equal amount and ground together.
