Khara Chicken Masala
A totally unique taste.. you’ll be hooked after the first mouthful. ‘Khara’ (pronounced kurra) means ‘whole’, as in the whole spices that are used in the dish. Smoky black cardamoms, cinnamon sticks and chilli flakes all combine to make a unique flavour. And it’s still so easy. Just 9 ingredients.
If you try just one chicken dish, make sure it’s this one.
500g chicken, cut into small pieces
2 medium tomatoes or 4 small ones, quartered
2 onions, finely sliced
4-6 tbsp oil
1 and 1/2 tsp hot dried chilli flakes
1/2 tsp salt
2 cinnamon sticks
2 or 3 black cardamoms
2 tsp cumin seeds
Heat the oil. Add the tomatoes and chicken. Mix.
Add the cinnamon, cardamoms, salt, cumin seeds and chilli flakes. Stir to combine. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes on a medium heat, until virtually all the liquid has gone and the chicken is cooked through.
Add the sliced onions. Stir through. Put the lid on and let it cook on a low heat for 20-30 minutes until almost all the liquid has gone and the onions are reduced and brown.
Serve with roti and yoghurt.
