Italian Chicken Cacciatore

Italian Chicken Cacciatore

Italian Chicken Cacciatore is a rustic, earthy braise of chicken with vegetables and tomatoes.The chicken is first browned and then slowly braised in a chunky sauce made with tomatoes and vegetables.Chicken Cacciatore translates to “Hunter Style Chicken” in Italian. There are a lot of fables around the stew.It’s believed “Hunter style Chicken” is made right after hunting that bird or rabbit, in the middle of a jungle, with vegetables plucked off the foliage but we don’t live in a jungle and neither do we hunt our own food so this is a compromise at best! Another story is that when the men returned empty handed after a hunt their women folk made chicken cacciatore like we Indians probably make khichadi …

Mangalorean Chicken Ghee Roast

Authentic Mangalorean Chicken Ghee Roast made with whole spices,tamrind and jaggery.

The first time I had Chicken Ghee Roast was in 2011,when I was visiting Bangalore to meet my then boyfriend, now husband.We went to this iconic but now slightly shady pub with our friends  and at the end of the night ,in search of some sustenance, ordered Chicken Ghee Roast with Aapams. Since then,I have grown weary of places with dance floors but I still brave this place , just to have the chicken ghee roast. The Chicken Ghee Roast is a Mangalorean speciality, also known as Kundapur Chicken.For those who have never tasted this , let me try and put it in words ,though I am sure I won’t be able to do justice.This is a spicy, slightly tangy,rich chicken …

Tamil Nadu Style Pepper Chicken Curry

Tamil Nadu Style Pepper Chicken Curry

Today I bring to you the Tamil Style Pepper Chicken Curry from the southern East coast of India. Even though I cook a lot of Indian food I don’t post as many recipes on the blog.It’s probably because most times ,I cook by taste.Add spices,some yogurt, some lentils,some onion..taste here..taste there..adjust..change..it’s mostly recipe less. That’s why it’s always difficult to write about indian cuisine but recently I have come across some amazing bloggers and food writers who have inspired me to embrace my everyday Indian cooking and share it with my readers here.I have also started reading a lot more about Indian cooking and truth be told it’s daunting because of its sheer vastness.There are more cuisines in India than languages …

Indian Chicken Keema Curry

Chicken Keema

Introducing my most versatile Chicken recipe today- Chicken Keema Writing about Indian Food is difficult for me because more often than not I am just throwing stuff in my pot, adjusting as I go..I do start out with a rough idea in my mind..decide on the big things first..like will I be using vegetables or meat or chicken but from then on it’s more of an auto pilot. In my opinion, curries and stews are made more as per taste and preference rather than a set in stone recipe.It’s easier to do this while baking which is a precise chemical reaction ,when done right, it will give you precise results.I add, adjust and measure things by hand or by the eye …

Day 1-whole30 Pan fried Chicken with Grilled Pumpkin and Sweet Potato

Day 1-Whole30 The first day was pretty difficult…it’s not easy to get around the fact that I can’t have any dairy, grains or legumes. I spent 1 hour yesterday roaming in Auchan looking for something that fit the rules of whole30…But aisle after aisle was a disappointment…I bought some chicken and lots of veggies.. One of my friends is studying Nutrition and she wasn’t quite sold on the idea of no legumes and diary and suggested I do a modified version by including legumes and yoghurt. I haven’t decided yet if I will do this yet but I will consider it down the line. What I ate on day one Breakfast -Frittata with onions, tomato and basil Lunch -Pan Fried …
