Yoghurt Chicken


This is a very simple chicken dish which I made with whatever ingredients I had in the fridge and pantry.  I was just trying it out and there was no guarantee that it will be good.  Kept my fingers crossed that it'll be at least edible!  Yup, it turned out to be 'not too bad'.  That was the verdict given by my other half who was the guinea pig as well!.



An alternative is to place these marinated chicken pieces onto an alluminium foil lined baking tray and bake in the oven, but I chose to just wok it up!






I served this yoghurt chicken with freshly cut cucumbers and home-made Chapati!  You can check out my Chapati post  'here'.

Ingredients
  • 650 gm chicken  (1/2 chicken, cut  and skin removed)
  • 1 Tsp each of :  salt, garam masala and sugar
  • 2  Tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2  Tsp coriander powder
  • 3 pips garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 150 ml plain yoghurt
Preparation

Marinate the chicken pieces with the above ingredients for a few hours, preferably overnight.  Next, dump everything into the wok and simmer under medium low heat till the chicken is thoroughly cooked through, about 45 min.  Dish up and serve, with rice, bread or whatever you fancy.

  1. I seem to look at this as a whitish tandoori chicken ... I bet it sure does taste good.

    It's certainly not a tandoori dish, as in the first place, I don't have a tandor to make it nor is it baked. I just 'wok' it up using yoghurt and whatever ingredients I have on hand. Come to think of it, it's original!

    Not at all. You enjoy your weekend too!

    Northern Indian curries use yoghurt, seldom they use coconut. You can try with yoghurt, see whether you like it. As you know, one's man meat is........

    Yup, marinated overnight is certainly much better. Pop into the oven, easy job!

    Like Elin said, the yoghurt tends to tenderise the meat as well.
