Murg Kofta Curry:
Chicken Kofta Curry. Chicken Vadai Kuzhambu?! (Now vegetarians don't abscond away from my page'...I have one lying for y'll too).
I was totally jobless on the other day...had no possible goals for the evening. Long lying chicken breast was begging me to take care! I was fermenting this recipe in my mind for quite a while. Since I was force fed with this Veggie Kofta Curry (at Delhi hostel)...I was pretty mad at the chef (back then)! Some of you all are aware that I hate anything that sounds, smells and spells 'V.E.G.E.T.A.B.L.E'. Yeah, its my turn in the kitchen now! I am so proud of myself...feeling so adult.
Then, I felt an instant desire to try this recipe right away. Okay here I come, (now don't expect me to do anything extraordinary)! Well...I am not a superwomen! So ended up making...not so perfect' but yet delectable 'Murg Kofta Curry'. I cannot say enough good things about today's curry. All I could assure y'll is...its worth the effort!! The recipe is kind of time consuming in terms of preparation, otherwise it was a fun evening to play with food:)
Chicken breast 1-2 (boneless, skinless & cubed)
Green chili 3
Ginger 1" grated
Garlic 2 cloves minced
All purpose flour
Oil for frying.
Onion 1 paste
Ginger paste 1 spoon
Garlic paste 1 spoon
Cashew nuts 15-20 paste

Cook chicken breast till tender and shred them. Retain the broth.
Now combine all the ingredients(except oil) with shredded meat.
Mix them well. Divide them into equal parts and shape them into desired way.
Heat oil in a pan, shallow fry them till golden brown. Set aside.
In a wide wok, melt butter...add ginger-garlic paste and onion paste. Wait till the raw odour leaves the pan.
Now add tomato puree, salt, turmeric and chili powder. Add one or two cups of chicken broth and bring this to boil.
Now add cashew nut's paste to it...continue cooking over medium heat.
Add the fried koftas to it...simmer it down. Once it is done, remove from heat.
Serve to go with your rotis or naan bread. Enjoy.
