Chicken with Mustard and Yogurt

A very quick dish with a south Indian touch, this chicken is easy to prepare and hardly needs any special ingredients and can be enhanced with a few quick cooking or blanched vegetables. Can be stuffed into sandwiches and pies too!

Looking for a quick dish a few days back, I found a little boneless chicken in the freezer. Since I felt like something meaty with a south Indian touch to it, this recipe followed, which turned out quite well really.

[singlepic id=505 w=320 h=240 float=left]You’ll need boneless chicken cut into strips, finely chopped onions, mustard seeds, curry leaves, yogurt, freshly ground black pepper and some salt. After heating a little oil, crackle some mustard seeds and fry your onions till pink/transparent. Add the curry leaves and throw in the chicken. Stir fry for a few minutes, then add the black pepper, salt and some yogurt. Not too much yogurt, just enough to coat the chicken.

Cover and simmer for 5 – 7 minutes. Serve hot with rice. Yeah, I know it doesn’t have much gravy, so rice may not be the best, but I do like to eat dry rice with a barely moist dish sometimes. Try it… you may actually like it. :)
