Chicken Chilly


Didn't I stick to the promise I made during Chicken Curry/Rassa post?? I like to keep promises :)

The Non Vegetarian food cooked on a regular basis in my home includes the non-veg curries, however when it comes to make something special which can be served as a side dish or will work fabulously as a starter, I always get into a deep-thinking mode. Dry chicken or some egg roast or egg masala also works well..but I dont know why it is categorized as 'regular' & not 'special or hatke'.

A similar kind of situation aroused when few of our friends visited our home for the first time! I started hunting for something quick & less time consuming. That is how this particular dish took birth in my home. Its quick & really easy requiring very less attention. Try it!!

Chicken Chilly

Serves: 2-3                  Preparation Time: 10 mins                  Cooking Time: 20 mins


1/4 kg Chicken (with bones) or (boneless), I prefer with bones
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 green chillies, slit  
1/2 tbspn ginger garlic paste
1 tsp haldi
1/2 tbspn kashmiri red chilly pwd
1/2 tbspn soya sauce
1 tsp vinegar
2 1/2 tbspn oil
1 1/2 cup water
salt as per taste

Step 1: Wash & clean the chicken pieces. In a mixing bowl, put the chicken, add haldi & salt. Mix well. Set aside. 
Haldi & salt applied on chicken pieces
Step 2: Boil water.
Step 3: Heat 1/2 tbspn oil. Add chicken pieces & saute on high flame for 4-5 mins. Add water & cook covered till the chicken is just cooked & tender but chewy! This will take approx. 10-12 mins.
Step 4: Heat rest of the oil in another pan. Once its piping hot, add green chillies followed by onions & saute till translucent. 
Step 5: Add ginger garlic paste & saute for a minute. 
Step 6: Increase the flame. Add vinegar, soya sauce & red chilly pwd. Mix well. Add chicken with leftover water if any. 
Step 7: Keep stirring on a high flame till the water evaporates & its dried out.
Step 8: Can be served as a starter or a side dish.

* In case of a hurry & no extra gas burner available, Step 3 can also be done in a pressure cooker. In that case, reduce the amount of water to 1 cup & cook upto 1 whistle on medium flame.
* A small green bell pepper can be chopped & added. If you have it, add it after adding   onions & saute for 2-3 mins.
* If you have spring onions, they can be used for garnishing.
