Chicken and Eggplant Masala

Post  Blossom on Wed Jul 16, 2008 12:25 pm

Almost as good with Zucchini instead of eggplant, or any other veggie for that matter. My own recipe.

Cosmic Chicken and Eggplant Masala

large red onion, sliced lengthways
1 large eggplant skin on, cubed, fairly large
red capsicum, chopped roughly into 1 inch cubes
cup peas
2 chicken breasts cubed roughly into 1 inch cubes
2 large cloves garlic
2 tsp grated or pureed ginger
tbsp butter or ghee
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp coriander seeds
2 tsp yellow mustard seeds
1 tsp fenugreek seeds
1 tsp nigella seeds (or black pepper)
tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp Madras curry powder
tsp ground cinnamon
3 tsp turmeric
tsp salt
cup chicken stock
4 tsp tomato paste

Heat oil and butter and fry seeds until they start to pop.
Add ground spices, onion, garlic and ginger, fry lightly until onions are soft
Add chicken, cook for a few minutes turning to coat with spices
Add eggplant, capsicum and peas.
Add tomato paste and chicken stock, salt, stir and cover
Cook covered for 15 minutes
Serves 4 with Basmati rice and/or Naan

You could probably just use oil.

I'm collating all my recipes, which are all over the place and starting with chicken curry recipes as my daughter asked for some. When they are done ( tidied up and spell checked) I'll make them available if anyone wants them. If I do a section at a time, I should have them sorted in 100 years time!

Yum. Thanks. Good luck with your recipe sorting. I'll put up my hand for any recipes you'd like to share. So far all of yours have worked like a charm.

I'd probably use chicken thighs instead of breasts. But that's just me. Smile
