CHICKEN,LENTIL AND VEGGIE MIX
Hi there.Welcome to my food corner again.Today I’ll be sharing with you a very wholesome,tasty and healthy curry recipe and has the goodness of double proteins in the form of chicken and lentils and also green vegetables in it.So let’s start with it—
- Chicken-150 gms
- Mixed Vegetables(French Beans, Carrot, Capsicum)-25 gms each
- Lentil(Rajma and Black Gram)-100 gms
- Green Chillies-2
- Ginger-Garlic Paste-2 tsp
- Salt-According to taste
- Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
- Red Chilly Powder-1 tsp
- Coriander Powder-1 tsp
- Cumin Powder-1 tsp
- Chicken Masala-1 tsp
- Garam Masala-1 tsp
- Tomato Puree-1 tbsp
For the tempering:-
- Cumin-1 tsp
- Bay Leaf-1
- Whole Garam Masala(green and black cardamom, cinnamon, star anise)-1 tsp
- Vegetable Oil or Ghee-1 tbsp
Wash the chicken and boil it. Wash and dice the given veggies, french beans, carrot, capsicum, peas and blanch them for two minutes. Also boil the lentil, rajma and whole black gram. In this recipe, I have used rajma and urad dal but alternately you can use any other dal too. Chop the onions, green chilies, and cilantro.
Now take a pan and add some ghee,butter or oil.Splutter the cumin,bay leaf,whole garam masalas and then add the chopped onions and green chillies.After frying for a minute add the ginger-garlic paste and fry again.Now add the spices,salt,turmeric powder,red chilly powder,coriander powder,cumin powder,chicken masala,garam masala and fry again before adding the tomato puree and dry mango powder for the perfect touch.
Now add the blanched chicken and fry for three minutes. Then add the mixed veggies and boiled lentil along with water for the gravy. Let it simmer for ten minutes before switching the gas off. Garnish with chopped cilantro though it is optional.You can also add fresh cream to get that extra grasp of taste but I promote fitness and health more than the taste part so I have avoided it.
Our Chicken, Lentil And Veggie Mix is done. Serve it with steamed or fried rice, tandoori rotis, kulchas or paranthas.
