Diljit Dosanjh is back again with his cooking diaries, and the wait was honestly worth it. While unconventional food pairings are taking over the Internet, Diljit has also stepped up his game. He prepared a unique coconut chicken curry and shared the step-by-step process of the dish on his Instagram Stories. Although he encountered a few hiccups due to the limited ingredients, the singer managed to create a delicious-looking meal. "Aaj hum banane jaa rahe hain coconut chicken. Ab roz salad thodi na kha sakta hai aadmi (Today we are going to cook coconut chicken. A person can't eat salad every day)," he said while showcasing the chopped chicken, coconut, and some coconut malai. Take a look:

Another challenge Diljit Dosanjh faced was having fewer "shaktiyan" (powers), in the form of spices. We could spot achari aloo masala, coriander powder, cardamom, and some other spices. Due to the shortage of chicken, he included some capsicum in the mix. Diljit changed the name of the dish to coconut capsicum chicken. In a follow-up clip, he added the chopped capsicums to the pan and sautéed them. Moving ahead, he started with two tablespoons of ghee in a separate pan. Don't miss the musical element! Next, he added some cardamom, followed by chopped onions to the ghee.
Diljit hilariously says, “Jello (Yellow) karna hai, jello ke baad yeh mellow ho jayega.” Time to throw in the chicken. While mixing the chicken chunks with the sautéed onions, the singer wrote, “Onion more than chicken.” From the spices compartment, he added a spoonful of haldi (turmeric), green chilli, and red chilli powder. For an extra boost of flavour, the singer emptied a bowl of chopped tomatoes into the mix. “Kisi bhi dish ko agar aap shiddat se pakao, toh puri kayenath usko pakane mein lag jati hai,” he said, while covering the lid of the pan for 15 minutes.

Next, the singer added a not-so-usual element - the coconut malai - to the chicken dish. He wrote, “It's all about quality and quantity too.” Diljit joked about how the dish looked a lot like chicken salmon. To enhance the flavour profile of the chicken coconut dish, he added some aloo and masala powder. But that's not all. He also squeezed half a lemon into the dish. “Is lemon okay with coconut?” he asked. Next, he added the sautéed capsicums to the chicken coconut gravy and brought some vibrancy to the dish. Diljit finished off the masterpiece with a garnish of chopped coriander leaves. The dish by all means looked lip-smackingly delicious.
