Raisin Chicken ~ When The Hubby Cooks!

There is so much of activity going on that I am hardly able to keep up with blogging these days. Tonnes of recipes are being tried out and some of them need to be tried out several times before I can present a fool proof recipe to you. So much work and so little time! Phew! I realised that today is the 15th already, just a few more days to go before Christmas so I guess I will post my recipes ASAP without any long stories. What do you say?

The husband made this a few days ago and the number of ingredients in this recipe took us both by surprise. How could something so minimal create something so magical? This delicious dish has a few simple and easily available ingredients to make a simple and quick side dish. It is not only simple but exotic in its own way - perfect for Christmas. Do give it a try and I am sure you will love it!

Raisin Chicken

1. Cut the chicken into medium sized pieces, wash well and leave to drain on a colander.
2. Heat oil in a wok and fry the onions till they turn golden brown and crisp (similar to how you fry onions to garnish biryani). Then add the chicken and fry it - do not add any water. Add salt and cover the wok and cook on a slow heat for about 20 minutes till the chicken is cooked.
3. Add the turmeric powder, raisins and green chillies and mix it well. Cook for about 4-5 minutes till the raisins turn soft. Remove from heat
4. Serve hot with chapathis or rice
