Yogurt Chicken

Yogurt chicken. A lipsmackingly delicious spicy Flavorful dry chicken curry without much spices. A spicy kick from green chilli and black pepper and flavoured with roasted cumin powder. That’s it. You don’t need onion garlic or any other spices and oil to make this tangy spicy chicken. Interesting isn’t it?

Serve this dry chicken as a starter or a side dish with pulao, fried rice, biryani or any bread. If you are on a restricted diet or don’t like to use much spices then its perfect for you.

Got this recipe recently from my loving sister Anju Arora. Anju makes this mouthwatering chicken curry frequently. And now it’s my favourite recipe to make in a jiffy. Thanks a lot Anju for this wonderful recipe.

I have used homemade thick curd or yogurt to make this curry. Don’t use watery curd or yogurt. If you don’t have thick curd then strain the curd with a strainer to get thick curd. Watery yogurt will curdle after adding in the chicken. You can use green chilli and black pepper powder according to your spice tolerance. I like my curry chatpata or spicy. Best part is you need only 1 teaspoon butter to make half kg chicken. You can use olive oil instead of butter if you want. I have used leg pieces but you can also use curry cut chicken.

Recipe

Chicken – 1/2 kg

Butter – 1 teaspoon

Yogurt or curd – 1 cup

Green chilli – 2-3 or to taste

Roasted cumin or bhuna jeera – 2 teaspoon

Black pepper powder – 1/2 teaspoon or to taste

Method

1. Wash the chicken well, drain the water and keep aside. I have used 5 leg pieces but you can also use curry cut chicken.

2. Heat butter in a pan or wok. I used Amul salted butter. Add chicken pieces and salt. Fry on high heat for 5 minutes. Stir in between.

2. After 5 minutes reduce the heat. Cover and cook on simmer for 10 minutes. Chicken will release water so you don’t need to add water.

3. Blend thick curd with green chilli and 1 teaspoon roasted cumin powder. Use your mixer grinder to blend the curd or yogurt. Remember don’t use watery curd. If you don’t have thick curd then strain the curd with a strainer to get thick yogurt or curd.

4. After 10 minutes remove the cover and add the blended curd and green chilli. If you want your chicken more spicy or hot use slit green chilli. Mix well. Adding whole green chilli with curd is optional, you can skip this step if you don’t like your chicken hot.

5. Increase the flame and cook on high heat for 5 minutes. Curd will curdle if unattended so don’t forget to keep stirring.

6. Again reduce the flame and cover. Cook on simmer for 10-15 minutes or till chicken becomes tender. Check in-between. Timing depends on the quality of chicken.

7. When chicken becomes tender remove the cover and cook on high heat. Keep stirring. When chicken is about to dried up add black pepper powder and mix well. Taste and adjust salt if required.

8. Cook till chicken completely dried up or you can see the butter leaves the sides. Add 1 teaspoon roasted cumin powder, mix and remove from heat. Your yogurt chicken is ready. Serve hot as a side dish with pulao, fried rice, biryani or any bread. Or enjoy it as a starter.

Recipe note –

1. If you want your chicken less tangy use 1/2 to 3/4 cup curd or yogurt. And if you want to make more tangy add a dash of lemon juice before serving.

2. Olive oil can be used instead of butter.

I have some fresh large red chilli/red Jalapeno or red chilli pepper. These chillies are not hot at all. We love the taste of these red chillies and earlier used in Spicy chicken curry and some other recipes. And also used red cabbage and capsicum with tomato, onion, garlic and green chilli to make this delicious noodles.

If you are making it for kids reduce the amount of green chilli, chilli sauce and schezwan sauce. And if you want your noodles hot use 1 tablespoon each. You can also use bell peppers, cabbage, beans, carrots, baby corn, broccoli, mushrooms or any vegetable with red cabbage . I don’t have yellow bell pepper but if you have, use it to make your noodles more colorful. Vinegar soaked green chilli taste great with noodles. Serve a small bowl of vinegar soaked green chilli with tomato and chilli sauce with this noodles. Your family members or guests can add it to their plate according to their taste.

Bajra Or Pearl Millet Pizza Crackers / Gluten Free Crackers

Bajra or pearl millet pizza crackers. Crispy crunchy eggless crackers made with pearl millet or bajra flour. A perfect winter special gluten free treat for kids and adults both. Because nutritious and protein, fiber, iron enriched gluten free pearl millet or bajra also helps to stay us warm in winter. Crackers are gluten free and if you are following vegan diet, omit cheddar cheese powder.

Here is an easy to make recipe for this season. But if you don’t have pearl millet flour or you don’t like the taste of pearl millet then you can make it with refined flour/maida or whole wheat flour/atta. Refined flour or all purpose flour/maida definitely taste better but not healthy though but you can use once in a while. Or use a mixture of refined flour and whole wheat flour. Choice is your.

This time I have used my new Samsung microwave to make these crackers. At first I was little confused about its hot blast mode. But now my experience is its perfect for baking just like convection mode or OTG. But hot blast mode takes less time and also you have to set the temperature at low. For cookies set at 160° instead of 180° and for crackers set the temperature at 170° or 180° instead of 190°. And keep an eye after 8 minutes because it bakes faster than traditional oven. Here is the picture of the new member of my kitchen 😀. I also loved the look. Isn’t looks cute? And also sharing a picture of samosa which I had made first time using it’s slim fry mode. Slim fry mode works as air fryer. And vadi or sun dried lentil dumplings using sun dry mode. You can call it instant vadi.

Bajra is rich in magnesium, which helps keep the heart healthy. It has potassium, which dilates blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more easily. This helps reduce overall blood pressure. Bajra also has fibre that helps reduce LDL, or bad, cholestrol. Source

Do visit her space for many innovative and healthy recipes like Healthy sattu cookies , Semolina and coconut tea cake and her Palak paneer fried rice is also in my list to try soon.

My contribution for this theme is pizza flavored crackers made with pearl millet or bajra flour. Kids love pizza, right? So here is a crispy crunchy and nutritious crackers with all the goodness of pearl millet. As I mentioned above, if you want to make it dairy free just skip cheese powder. And if you don’t have bajra or pearl millet flour then you can use whole wheat flour or all purpose flour. You can also use the seasoning according to your choice.

Recipe

Bajra or pearl millet flour – 1 cup

Olive oil – 3 tablespoon

Salt – 1/2 teaspoon

Baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Oregano – 1 teaspoon

Dried basil – 1/2 teaspoon

Chilli flakes – 1/2 teaspoon

Pizza sauce – 2 teaspoon

Garlic powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Cheddar cheese powder – 1 tablespoon, optional

Water – 5 tablespoon

Method

1. Preheat the oven at 180°. Grease a baking pan or line with parchment paper.

2. In a bowl mix bajra or pearl millet flour, salt and olive oil. Mix well.

3. Add baking powder, oregano, dried basil, chili flakes, pizza sauce, garlic powder and cheddar cheese powder. Mix again. See notes for more options.

4. Now add water and make a smooth pliable dough. Add little more water if required. I have used 2 teaspoon water more. Cover and keep aside for 10-15 minutes.

5. Sprinkle little flour on a flat surface. Knead the dough again and roll with a rolling pin. Thickness shouldn’t be more than 1/4 inch.

6. Prick with a fork and cut with a cookie cutter or pizza cutter. Cut into your desired shape.

7. Place the crackers on baking pan. Bake in preheated oven at 170° for 8 to 10 minutes or till the crackers becomes light brown. If you are using OTG bake at 180°. Enjoy the guilt free crackers on your munching time.

Notes

1. Whole wheat flour/atta or refined flour/ maida can be used instead of bajra or pearl millet flour.

2. You can add the seasoning according to your taste.

3. Garlic paste or minced garlic can be used instead of garlic powder.

4. You can also use freshly crushed black pepper in the dough.

5. To make the crackers vegan omit cheese powder.

Helps in digestion

2. Boosts blood circulation

3. Helps in weight loss

Nutritious chickpeas have many health benefits. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are part of the legume family. As a rich source of vitamins, minerals and fiber, chickpeas may offer a variety of health benefits, such as improving digestion, aiding weight management and reducing the risk of several diseases. Additionally, chickpeas are high in protein and make an excellent replacement for meat in vegetarian and vegan diets. Including chickpeas in your diet regularly will support your health and may reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases, such as heart disease and cancer. Source – Healthline

Spicy Potatoes With Tamarind

Spicy potatoes with tamarind. Lip-smacking dry baby potatoes coated with spices. A no onion garlic and easy to make dry curry. You can serve it as a side dish or also as a teatime snack.
A completely gluten free and vegan dish.
I always make it with fluffy puri or fulko luchi.

Everyone loves potatoes in my home and this spicy tangy potato is a all time favorite. You can also enjoy it as a starter.
Not only delicious but potatoes are also a comfort food. Baby potatoes are very common in this season but if you don’t have baby potatoes, you can also use boiled and cubed large potatoes.

Potatoes are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which make them very healthy.
Studies have linked potatoes and their nutrients to a variety of impressive health benefits, including improved blood sugar control, reduced heart disease risk and higher immunity. They may also improve digestive health and combat signs of aging.

Potatoes are also quite filling, which means they may help you lose weight by curbing hunger pains and cravings.

All in all, potatoes are a great addition to your diet in moderation. They are also naturally gluten-free, which means they can be enjoyed by almost everyone.
