Tomato Garlic Chicken



Tomato Garlic Chicken

Tomato Garlic chicken is a quick semi dry chicken recipe. It is tomato based chicken stir fry along with garlic and spicy chilly.I used Chinese chilly garlic sauce (Lee Kum Kee brand) to give it a bit of heat. If you do not like to add sauce you can make a  home made version equivalent to it y grinding chiles, garlic and vinegar. You can have this as a side dish for rice or fried rice.

Ingredients

Chicken - 1 lb
Tomato-3 medium
( finely minced or make a puree)
Shallots crushed or finely minced- 1/2 cup
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp
Chilly garlic sauce- 1 1/2 tsp  (I used Lee Kum Kee brand)
(If you like more spicy use Tuong ot toi Vietnam)
Tomato paste- 1 tsp
Soya sauce- 1 tsp
pepper powder-1/3 tsp
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Ground cinnamon and cloves- 1/3 tsp
Chopped coriander leaves
Chopped spring onions for garnish


Clean and cut chicken into small bite sized pieces. Marinate with a pinch of salt, 1/3 tsp of pepper and a pinch of turmeric powder for about 15 minutes.(If you are using home made paste mix,make a paste with ground chiles, garlic,salt and vinegar. Mix with the chicken and allow to marinate).

Heat oil in a pan and add crushed shallots and saute for till golden brown. Add ginger garlic paste and after a minute add the finely chopped tomatoes. Stir and allow the tomatoes to cook and get dry.
Next add the marinated chicken and fry for about a minute. Cover and cook for another 3-4 minutes.It will cook in its own water. Add chilly garlic paste,tomato paste and soya sauce and allow the gravy to reduce to the consistency you like. Finely add ground cinnamon and clove and chopped coriander leaves and mix.Garnish with spring onions.

Hope you will all enjoy!
