Jeera ChickenThis Jeera Chicken recipe is thanks to Charlie Ladher РI wanted to add some foundation and more understanding of indian cooking so I enrolled on an Indian cookery course at a local college. Today we made a jeera chicken recipe (jeera  means cumin). Myself and Amanda have not been eating meat  for the past few weeks so I substituted the chicken for Quorn chicken Рit worked out just fine!

Ingredients

  • 500g Chicken (or Quorn) cubed in 1 inch pieces
  • 2 or 3 x onions
  • 2 x tomatoes (chopped roughly)
  • Half can chopped tomatoes
  • 250 ml single cream
  • 125g butter (yes really!)
  • 1 red chilli
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • salt and sugar to taste
  • A good handful of chopped coriander

Method

  1. Melt the butter or ghee in a pot and fry the onions and chilli’s until soft and shiny
  2. Add the fresh tomatoes, garlic, cumin and turmeric and cook for around 5 minutes
  3. Add canned tomatoes and the chicken, put the lid on and cook for around 10 minutes
  4. Add salt and sugar to taste I used about a tsp of each).
  5. Add the single cream and cook for a further 5 minutes (or until the chicken is cooked)
  6. Stir in the coriander
  7. Serve with rice or bread.
