Kadai Chicken | Chicken Kadahi

Simple ingredients and flavorful chicken. Kadai(kadahi) is circular deep pot like Chinese Wok used in Asian cooking. Recipe will turn out equally tasty in any other cooking pot used,so go ahead try this even if you don't have a kadai in your kitchen. But be sure not to over cook the bell peppers ,I like them still crunchy ,so I cook the chicken separately. Since this recipe uses chicken with bones ,it takes longer to cook but has lot more flavor.




Recipe

Serves 3-4
Ingredients
  • 2 lb (about 1 KG) Free-range skinless chicken with bones,cut in medium pieces
  • 1/2 cup Organic low fat Yogurt

  • 1/2 a medium onion ,chopped or sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic,minced or chopped
  • 1/2 inch ginger root ,minced or thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of cumin and coriander powder or 1 teaspoon Garam Masala Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon hot chili powder or cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Vegetable oil
  • some chopped Cilantro and hot peppers for garnish 



Method
Cook Chicken Separately

  1. Marinate chicken in 1/2 teaspoon salt ,turmeric ,chili powder and yogurt for 10 minutes. 
  2. Heat pan with 1 tablespoon of oil ,add chicken marinated and cook on medium heat 25-30 minutes until tender and all water is dry. Increase heat towards the end to make it dry


Cook the Vegetables and mix in the Chicken

  1. Heat a Kadai(circular deep pot like Chinese Wok) on medium high heat ,add a tablespoon of oil followed by onions,ginger and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes before adding bell peppers ,hot peppers ,tomatoes ,all remaining spices and salt
  2. After 2-3 minutes when bell peppers and tomatoes are tender,mix in the cooked chicken and cook for another 2-3 minutes until flavors blend in the chicken. Garnish with chopped cilantro and hot peppers.
  3. Serve warm with whole grain or multi grain flat bread\roti.
