Chicken In Yoghurt With Okra

Ingredients:

  • Red chilli powder
  • Salt
  • Haldi (Turmeric)
  • Garam Masala
  • Kasuri Methi
  • Lots of finely chopped onions
  • Boneless chicken – diced
  • Okra – 1/2 inch pieces
  • Yogurt
  • Oil

Method:

  1. Mix the chilli powder, salt and turmeric. Marinate the chicken in this for about an hour.
  2. Add oil in the pan, bring to high heat
  3. Add the okra and fry till they are bright green and just a wee bit stiff. Take these out and set aside.
  4. Add the onions now and fry till they start turning brown at the edges
  5. Add all the spices and fry a bit more.
  6. Add all the chicken with the yogurt and all. Remember to do all this at high heat.
  7. Stir it around a bit, till the chicken is cooked on the outside (turns white).
  8. Add some water, just a little, this is not meant to have a watery gravy.
  9. Add the kasuri methi and stir.
  10. Lower the flame and cook till the chicken is done.
  11. Mix in the fried okra.

Notes:

  1. Serve with Rotis. Doesn’t go well with rice or bread.
  2. Another idea: If any gets left over – add some butter to a pan, dump the left overs in it and serve with toast. :)
