During my spinster days I either liked to cook exotic stuff and not cook at all at times! 🙂 This is a non spicy chicken recipe which I used to make it quite often then. This dish will not only suit the taste palettes of my European friends but also my Indian friends who am sure are going to love it! So this weekend why not try out this recipe? …don’t forget to give me a feedback though! 🙂

Chicken – 1/2 kg (cleaned and cut into pieces)

Cloves – 4 nos

Cinnamon – 2 tsp

Green cardamom – 4 nos

Bay leaf – 2 nos

Star anise – 1/2 number (3 petals)

Dry red chili – 2-3 nos

Carrot – 1 no. big (cubed)

Beans – 50 gms (chopped)

Cauliflower – 3/4 cup (florets)

Bean Sprouts – 1 cup

Coconut milk – 100 ml

Cornflour – 1/2 tbsp

  • Grind to a fine powder – cloves, cinnamon, green cardamom, bay leaf and star anise
  • Cook chicken along with 2 cups of water, 1/2 tsp salt and red chillies and ground spices. If cooking in a pressure cooker wait for 2 whistles and turn off the gas. Keep it aside to cool
  • Except Cauliflower, add all the vegetables including sprouts to the chicken and cook on low flame
  • Cauliflower takes less time to cook so add when the other vegetables are half done
  • Add coconut milk and cornflour. Stir
  • Add salt to taste
  • Serve hot with rice

Till next time….happy cooking!
