Soo... I went to the store today to try and get the stuff to make the Pav Bhaji... And we were out of Cilantro/Coriander leaves. Won't be in until Monday. So, I guess that is not going to happen.
(Which is kinda ok, as I don't really know what asafetida is or where I'd find it.)
Instead, I made a curry inspired chicken dish. I'll try to share the recipe, but as I don't measure... ^^; It's going to end up being more of a method than a recipe. I cannot give amounts for anything- I just go with 'what looks good'.
.:Ashen's Creamy 'Curried' Chicken and Broccoli:.
4 bone-in, skinless Chicken thighs
Curry Powder and:
-Dried Ground Mustard
-Chicken Bullion cube
Onion (I used a handful of the frozen chopped ones.)
Place chicken in a pot. Over the chicken sprinkle in some curry powder and black pepper. Add in bay leaf, 3-5 whole cloves, and bullion cube. Sprinkle in other seasonings. Fill pot with water until chicken is just covered. Cover pot. Simmer chicken about 20 mins. Chicken will not be cooked. Remove from heat. Reserve boiling liquid.
Start your rice- the kind I use takes about one hour to make. If your rice takes less time, start it later.
In a saute pan, saute your onion with butter. When the onion just starts to become golden, add a couple ladles of the chicken's boiling liquid/stock. Stir, and add in some milk (about the same amount as the water you just added). Pour in about half a pint of cream. Add a swirl of honey- a tablespoon at the most. Sprinkle in curry powder and additional seasonings. Adjust to taste.
Place chicken in pan. Keep some boiling liquid in case you want a thinner sauce. Coat with sauce, cover, and cook at a simmer. Flip chicken occasionally so it won't stick. If your sauce reduces too much add some more milk/cream and stock. About 50 mins later, add broccoli. You may need to add more liquid at this point. Cook broccoli to desired doneness.
This is what I had for supper tonight. It is yummy. ^^
