Back After a Long Break with a recipe - "Chicken Bharta"

At last I am back on my blog after a long break:-). I had to spend time with my son during his summer vacation and now he is back to school but.. still my one year old daughter takes all my time:-(. I blame myself for not managing the time. So I'll try to update my blog whenever I find time.
My recipe today is "chicken Bharta" , this is the new recipe I actually tried this for the first time and no doubt it came out really good. Surprisingly this dish is quite easy to prepare. This is a recipe where finely chopped chicken is cooked with onion , tomato and other spices and here is the recipe of chicken Bharta.

Boneless Chicken thigh - 1lb ( finely chopped)
Finely Chopped Onion - 1
Finely Chopped tomato - 3 medium
Green Chilies - 2 slit
Ginger Garlic paste - 2tsp
Cloves - 3
Cardamom - 2
Cinnamon - 1"
Coriander Powder - 2tsp
Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
Tandoori masala - 2 tsp (optional)
Cilantro chopped for garnishing
Oil - 4 tsp
Salt to taste


Heat oil in a non- stick pan and add clove, Cinnamon and cardamom then add chopped onion and saute for few mins and add the ginger garlic paste and mix . Now add chopped tomato and all the dry masala powders and give a good mix and close and cook for 5 mins. Now add the chicken and little water and close and cook for 10 to 15 mins or until chicken is well cooked and don't forget to stir in between. Garnish with cilantro. Server with chapati or even plain rice.

  2. Maple furniture can also be stained so as to look very similar to cherry in appearance. Red maple cabinets are another good choice to bring warmth and glow to your kitchen without the higher cost of a cherry kitchen.
