Saffron Chicken Recipe

Saffron Chicken Recipe

Ingredients :

1.5 kg chicken

3 tablespoons ghee

1 large onion, chopped finely

3 cloves garlic, chopped finely

1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated finely

3 fresh red chilies, seeded and sliced

1/4 teaspoon saffron strands

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 1/2 teaspoons salt


Method :

Cut the chicken into small bite-size serving pieces. Heat a heavy saucepan with ghee and gently fry the garlic, onion, ginger and chilies until the onion is soft and golden brown. Stir consistently. Pound saffron with mortar and pestle and dissolve in a tablespoon of very hot water. Add to pan with cardamom and stir well, then add chicken. Increase heat and turn chicken pieces for 4 to 5 minutes until each piece of chicken is golden and coated with the saffron mixture. Add salt, cover and cook over moderate heat for 10 minutes or until chicken is tender. Uncover pan and continue cooking until almost all the liquid evaporates. Serve with parathas or steamed white ice.
