I have had A LOT of request for this recipe and so I will share it, even though Mr S has confided in me his little dream about a restaurant that specialises in these dishes - no doubt due to the very 'healthy' response to the pic of this dish in a previous post and also due to the response of our guests each time I cook this dish.
Not to mention, of course, Mr S's 'healthy' imagination as well!
This dish is mild and best eaten with chapattis, in my opinion. It's delicious and easy, not to mention it does not require the normal coconut milk that we Malaysians just love to put in our dishes..
It's something different. Try it!
Chicken Karhai (literal translation: 'ayam kuali' - so make sure you use a kuali/wok for this one!)
3 fresh tomatoes, diced
garlic and ginger paste
crushed chillies (looks similar to the ones you get at pizza hut )
Chicken - 4-5 pieces of chicken, cut into small pieces
1-2 Tbs fresh yoghurt
coriander leaves, sliced
green chillies, sliced
Heat up the oil in your wok. Fry the tomatoes, turmeric, salt, ginger and garlic paste and the crushed chillies. Stir a little and fry on medium fire until the juice of the tomatoes dries up a bit - add chicken.
Cook the chicken on high fire for 2-3 minutes and then cover, on low fire until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Don't forget to turn the pieces over once in a while!
Increase fire. Add fresh yoghurt. Stir for 2-3 more minutes. Add the sliced coriander leaves and sliced green chillies. Stir for another few minutes.
Done! That was easy, wasn't it?
Good luck in trying and hope you LOVE it!
