Lemongrass Pepper Chicken Masala

It's been a huge relief after settling down in my new place and having the freedom to cook whatever I want, whenever I want.
I do hope I could keep the posts coming ...

Here's a chicken dish I made yesterday. It's an Indian based dish with a hint of Asian flavour. I would say it turned out pretty good. Do give it a try and leave ur feedback here.

Now for the recipe..

You need :
1/2 kilo chicken, cleaned and cut to pieces
1 big tomato, sliced

Blend together:
1 1/2 tbsp cracked black pepper
2 lemongrass (white part cut into small pieces)
1 big onion, sliced
6 cloves garlic
3 cm ginger, sliced
1/4-1/3 cup water

Keep aside.

1 tsp black pepper ground
2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

2 cardamons
1 cinnamon stick
2 cloves
1 tsp aniseed, pounded
2 sprigs curry leaves

salt to taste
some dark soy sauce

Method :

Mix blended ingredients with turmeric, ground pepper, coriander powder, chilli powder and turmeric powder. Add this to the chicken pieces, rub all over and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or longer.

Heat oil in a pan and add cinnamon, cloves and aniseed. When fragrant, add onion slices and curry leaves. Once onion turns lightly brown, add in the chicken pieces and tomato slices and mix well to combine.

Add some water if too dry and cover to cook, stirring occasionally until chicken is cooked through. Add a few dashes of dark soy sauce. Mix well and turn off heat.
Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves.
