Chicken Ajadina

Friday, October 23, 2009Me! In words

This is a typical Mangalorean Bunt dish, taken right out of my mom's cookbook. It requires quite a bit of preparation, but the final recipe is quite easy. So if you have some time on your hands, here goes...

Ingredients: 1 kg chicken, 2 onions sliced, 2 tbsps of ghee, salt to taste

Paste 1 - roast all the following in ghee and then grind together with 1/2 tsp garam masala powder, 1/4 tsp haldi and a marble sized ball of tamarind
Roast 1 onion, 12 dry chillies, 2 tsp coriander seeds, 5 pepper corns, 1/4 tsp methi seeds.

Ingredients for the first paste

Paste 1

Paste 2 - Roast in ghee and grind coarsely
1 grated coconut, 10 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp jeera seeds

Coarsely ground paste 2

Method: Heat ghee and fry the 2 sliced onions till golden brown. Add chicken pieces, salt and paste 1. Add water only if necessary and cook till the chicken is done. Add paste 2 and mix well. Cook further for a few minutes or till you feel it is done.
