Flu shot or Chicken Curry?
Here is a detailed recipe for chicken curry I wrote many years ago on my old blog that got wiped out!
Whenever it's flu season, I cook meat curries that have star anise as an ingredient ☺
Star anise is just one of the spices I use in my cooking!
Here's what you need -
24cm AMC roaster with lid
and stainless steel square spatula
Large sharp knife to cut
meat and onions
1.2 kilo chicken without skin
2 large Red or Yellow
1 square inch ginger finely
2 tablespoons of coriander
½ tablespoon turmeric
150 ml coconut milk
1 table spoon of salt
2 green chillies cut
10 large fresh curry
4 green cardamoms
2 small pieces of star
3 tablespoons of sunflower
6 large cloves of garlic
3 cups of water
Wash well in running water
and cut at the joints 1.2 kilo chicken
Slice thinly 2 large Red
or Yellow Onions and fry until golden brown in the 24 cm roaster using 3 tablespoons
of sunflower oil. Add 6 large finely chopped cloves of garlic, 1 square inch
ginger finely chopped, 2 green chillies cut lengthwise and continue to fry
until mixture turns light brown. Add 2
tablespoons of coriander powder, ½ tablespoon turmeric powder and mix on medium
heat till the mixture begins to fume with a strong aroma
Add 1 table spoon of salt, 4 cloves, 4 green cardamoms, star anise and mix without breaking cardamoms. Immediately add chicken and fry till dry. Add 150 ml coconut milk, 10 large fresh curry leaves and 3 cups of water, shut with lid and cook on low heat until done
