We had a trip to Las Vegas, as it was a long weekend here. "The Sin City" is the most populous city in Nevada. I would rather call it "The Entertainment Capital of the world"..
We did gambling, shopping, dining and walking along the "Strip". When it comes to gambling and casinos, we were not fortunate enough to hit some jackpot.. But yeah! we gained nothing and lost nothing, as well. All together it was a great trip and weary too..
So for this wonderful trip, I thought of treating my dear husband with a spicy chicken dish, as he loves it.. This dish is authentic with a spicy kick and the use of divine spices makes it truly awesome...!!
4 chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, cubed
2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
2 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp Garam Masala
1/2 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
8 green cardamom pods
4 bay leaves
6 whole cloves
3 tbsp oil
Cilantro, to garnish
Salt to taste
Marinate chicken (for atleast 30 mins) with all the masalas and salt. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and saute whole spices until the aroma has infused into the oil. Saute the ginger-garlic paste till the raw smell goes. Add chopped onion and saute till translucent. Now add tomato and saute till it becomes soft. Add the marinated chicken, mix and saute for few mins. Close the pressure cooker and cook for a whistle and simmer it.
Heat oil in a kadai. Transfer the whole thing to kadai and dry it till the desired consistency is attained.
Serve with steamed rice/roti/naan.
