ACHARI CHICKEN



Here is a chicken recipe, flavored with garlic, ginger, lime juice, mustard oil, chili and onion seeds. Last year when we were in India, a cooking competition was organized in my husband's office and this dish was appreciated by all. I could not ask for the ingredients which left me guessing all the time. After some googling and a bit reverse engineering, I finally tried it and it turned out pretty well. It is an excellent side dish which you can serve with rice, roti, naan, tortilla etc.

Cooking Time – 30 min

Serves – 4-5

INGREDIENTS:
  1. Boneless chicken – 1 lb (cut into bite size )
  2. Green banana pepper – 2-3
  3. 1 medium sized onion ( cut into thin slices)
  4. 1 large tomato ( chopped )
  5. 1 tbsp garlic paste
  6. 1 tbsp ginger paste
  7. 4 tbsp yogurt
  8. 1 tsp cumin seeds
  9. 1 tsp red chili powder
  10. ½ tsp fenugreek seeds
  11. 1 tsp turmeric powder
  12. 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  13. 1 tbsp mustard seeds
  14. 2-3 tbsp lime juice
  15. ½ onion seeds
  16. ½ ajwain/carom seeds
  17. Salt to taste
  18. Olive oil/ mustard oil – 3-4 tbsp
METHOD:
  1. Heat a deep pan with oil and cumin seeds. When cumin seeds start crackling, add onion slices and fry them till they turn to light brown.
  2. Now add chopped tomato and cook them until they turn into puree. After that add chicken pieces, yogurt, ginger garlic paste, salt, chili powder and mix well. Cover the pan with lid and cook on medium heat till chicken is half done.
  3. On a separate pan, roast mustard seeds,fennel seeds & fenugreek seeds together until they turn to light brown.
  4. Take 1 tbsp of this roasted mixture and keep it aside. Grind rest of mixture. Now add onion seeds and carom seeds in the ground mixture.
  5. Now add turmeric powder & lime juice in ground mixture and make a paste. Stuff this paste in banana pepper and keep it aside. Keep some paste aside.

  6. Add remaining paste and roasted mixture to the chicken and cook for 5 min on medium low heat. After that, place the stuffed banana pepper on chicken and cook another 5-7 min on low heat. Hot, sour and spicy Achari chicken is ready to serve.
