Aloo Chicken

 Chicken with potatoes
There is innumerous number of dishes one can cook with chicken with little variation based on geographical location, individual tastes and preferences but, the list is endless. It’s always fun to create new recipes with few ingredients around and to balance heat and flavors is all I need to do impress my guests. Having said that what I know is just a tiny part of the crowd, the entire list of recipes is just beyond my imagination.
      Coming to the Aloo Chicken, It is tender, slightly browned, soft and perfectly cooked chicken pieces well coated with spice. Take a mouthful of paratha roll a spice coated potato piece and straight to your mouth, Oh! It tastes divine. Serve hot with parathas/roti or as side dish with steamed rice and dal.


500 gm chicken (I use drumstick and chicken pieces)
2-3 tbsp oil
2 small potatoes, cubed
2 green chillies, chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 tsp ginger paste
1 clove garlic, minced
1 ½ tb of tomato sauce
½ tsp cumin powder
1+1/2 tsp chilli powder
Pinch of turmeric
Half lemon juice (about 2 tsp)
Salt to taste



Step 1:  Heat oil in frying
pan, add onion and saute for two minutes, add green chilli, ginger paste, garlic and saute till raw aroma vanish. Add chicken and saute in high heat for two minutes.

Step 2:  Add potatoes, saute in low heat for minute and add 1 cup of water, add chilli powder,salt, tomato sauce and give a stir, cook covered for 10 to 12 minutes, stir in-between to avoid sticking to pan. Add water if required, cook till chicken is tender. In the end water has to be evaporated completely.

Step 3: Sprinkle lemon juice, stir fry for a minute or 2 to lightly brown the potatoes and chicken. Do not burn it is just to bring in smoky flavor. Turn off and enjoy!

As I always say adjust spices according to your spice level.
