Chili Pepper Chicken

Chili pepper chicken may sound a bit too spicy. But it is a chicken curry I made using Cubenella peppers - a variety of sweet pepper which is extensively used in Puerto Rico's cuisine.  I really love the combination of peppers with chicken as it gives it a nice flavor. The pepper I used is tender and green, but you can also use the matured ones which is scarlet red or you can also make with bell peppers. This curry had a wonderful flavor and taste with a combination of pepper, coconut, peanuts,and other spices.


Ingredients
Chicken - 1 lb
Onion chopped- 1 cup
Chili Pepper chopped- 1 cup
Ginger garlic paste - 3 tsp
Chilly flakes- 1tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Roasted coconut- 1 1/2 tsp
Roasted peanut - 2 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Garam masala- 1 1/2 tsp
Soya Sauce - 2tsp 
Lemon juice- 2 tsp
Nutmeg powder- 1/3 tsp
Oil
Salt to taste




Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan and saute onions till  golden brown. Add peppers, salt and saute for about two minutes followed by ginger garlic paste. Add chicken and stir fry for a minute and dash in the spices, coriander powder and chilly flakes.Pour one cup of warm water or chicken stock and cook till the chicken is almost done. Roasted coconut and peanut and make into a fine powder and add into the curry,along with soya sauce, lemon juice and nutmeg powder. Simmer for another minute. Serve warm with plain rice or fried rice.

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
