Ginger Chicken Fry



This recipe is for those who love gingery aroma. I love the flavor of fried or roasted ginger which enhances the taste of chicken. This is not the Thai version but a Kerala style chicken fry and is inspired by the chilly ginger chicken fry or perattu popular in my native place.I just tried different version by adding lots of ginger. It tasted delicious as a side dish for rice.

Ingredients
Chicken boneless- 1 lb
Chilly powder- 1 1/2 tsp
( add according to your taste)
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Garam Masala/meat masala- 3/4 tsp
Ginger finely chopped- 3-4 tsp
Thinly sliced shallots- 2-3
Mint leaves - a few
Curry leaves
fennel seeds- a pinch
mustard seeds
oil-2 tsp
salt to taste


Cut chicken into small pieces and marinate with chilly powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder,garam masala and salt and keep aside for half an hour.Pour one tsp of oil in a pan and add curry leaves and mint and then the chicken.  Close the lid and cook in a low flames. The chicken will shed its own water and cook. Stir occasionally till completely cooked. ( If the chicken gets dry you can sprinkle a few drops of water.
Heat a little oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and fennel seeds. Next add ginger and shallots fry till golden brown and mix this with the cooked chicken. Stir fry for two more minute till all the masala gets well coated.


Ginger Prawns fry

I tried the same recipe with prawns.  But here the cooking time is less and you need not precook the prawns. You can add marinated prawns to the ginger mixture and fry.



Try this...

Hope you will all enjoy..
