Popular Post Vanessa Posted March 18, 2004 Popular Post Share Posted March 18, 2004 Working my way through some Indian recipes from a not very good book - an experiment in seeing what works and what doesn't. The night before last I turned my kitchen into a post-hurricane site with a convoluted, improbable recipe involving dal, soaked, ground and then deep fried in seasoned balls, boiled slices of an Indian gourd, and a weird yoghurt/chickpea flour sauce. I knew all along it wouldn't work and it duly turned out inedible. Then last night a chicken dish, nearly as improbable, but my premonition that it just might work was correct. A whole chicken stuffed with hard-boiled eggs (I soft-boiled them) and an onion/garlic/ginger/chilli mixture, rubbed first with ground green papaya and then a spice/nut mixture of poppy seeds/pistachios/almonds/garam masala. Sliced onions sauteed in butter (ghee if you want to be correct), the chicken put on top, couple of chopped tomatoes and plenty of yoghurt added, with seasoning, brough to a simmer on the stove and put in the oven for a couple of hours. Turned out pretty yummy even if I didn't grind the poppy seeds properly. v 84 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
