3.Chicken masala 2 tablespoon

How to make it

1.Add oil in a pan
2.Splutter the mustard seeds
3.Add the curry leaves
4.Add ginger and garlic and fry for 1 minute
5.Add all the spices
6.Make sure it mixes well with the onions..
7.Add the chicken
8. Fry it for 2 to 3 minutes
9. Add water and cover it
10.Cook it for 15 min med/high heat

    Hi Smitha,

    I have never made chicken at home (being brought up in a veggie family) but would like to try this out…I don’t know what kind of chicken I should buy. Can you help me with that?

    I tried this out and it came out really good.

    Maya, I would say buy Organic chicken. I prefer those – boneless, skinless chicken breast if you dont like bones, though some people prefer whole chicken.

    smitha, this sounds really good. I will try it. Can you also post some South Indian baby food recipes?
