How to Make Ginger Chicken
- In a blender, put roughly chopped tomatoes and milk. Blend till tomatoes are well blended and no chunks are left. Let it remain in the blender for now.
- Heat oil in a cooking pot and add chicken in it. Stir fry till chicken starts turning white. Add salt and further stir fry till chicken completely turns white from pink.
- Add red chilli powder, turmeric powder and coriander seeds powder. Mix well so that chicken is well coated with spices. Now pour the tomatoes and milk mixture.
- In the same blender's jug, put 1 1/2 cups water. Cover the lid and shake well so that the sides are washed.
- Now pour this water in chicken and mix. Increase flame to high and bring a boil. Add in the ginger julienne. Mix, cover and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally till chicken is cooked.
- Remove cover and reduce water on high heat till the gravy gets a little thickened and leaves oil on sides.
- Enjoy hot with chapati/bread .
