Ginger Chicken

It was just another weekend and time to prepare some meat dish. The usual ones are curried for the need of gravy. Settled down with a not so much gravy ginger chicken….

Ginger chicken is sometimes fried in batter and then sautéed in sauce. I prepared a slightly healthier version without the frying part.  Tastewise, it does not taste that gingery but still has a different flavour when compared to a chilly chicken. Can be had with chapatti or fried rice. 





the recipe

chicken – 500 gms

ingredients for the marinade

ginger juice – 2 tbsp
soya sauce – 1 tbsp
salt – ½ tsp

for the tempering

onion – 1 or 2
garlic – 6 cloves
ginger juliennes – 2 tbsp
soya sauce – 2 tbsp
tomato sauce – 1 tbsp
kashmiri chilly powder –  1 ½ - 2 tsp
salt to taste
spring onion – 2 plants ( i used only the green part)
oil – 2 tbsp
sugar – 1 pinch
pepper powder – ½ - ¾ tsp

the method

Marinate the chicken pieces for an hour with the ingredients for the marinade . Heat oil in a pan and sauté the chicken pieces till three fourth done. Drain it from the oil and water mixture. Heat oil in another pan or use the same pan and stir in the garlic and onion. When soft add ginger juliennes. Saute for about a minute and add the soy sauce and a pinch of sugar and salt. Add the sautéed chicken and mix well. Let it cook for about 2 minutes. Stir it and add the tomato sauce.  Check salt. Mix well and sprinkle the pepper powder and spring onion. Cook for a minute and serve hot as mentioned above. or as you please.
