Remember the Sunday tradition I mentioned? About cooking up something meaty and rich in taste..that’s exactly what happened after the avocado full breakfast.
Kebab meal day for us
It was super easy. I cooked it almost the same way as we cook our regular chicken curry with onion, just this time around I had tomato in the dish. And fortunately every time we go India we buy fresh chicken kebabs, which is later kept in the deep freezer till needed. It survives a long time. Also, this saves us time from actually making the kebab (grilled/skewered minced meat).
If you don’t have kebab, it’s fine, you can use grilled chicken cut into smaller pieces, just would need a good marinade! Anyhow let me quickly show you what’s needed for this dish 🙂
- 4-6 Kebabs
- 2 chopped big Red Onions
- 3-4 chopped Tomatoes
- 2 teaspoons of Cumin Seeds
- 1 teaspoons of Asafoetida (soaked in water)
- 1/2 teaspoons of Turmeric Powder
- 2 teaspoons of Garam Masala
- 2-3 tablespoons of Red Chilli Powder
- 2 tablespoons of Coriander Powder
- 2 teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder
- 1 teaspoons of Salt
- 1-2 tablespoons of Oil
- 1-1.5 cup of Water
- Chop the onions, tomatoes and fry the kebabs in oil till dark brown (cooked).
- Cut the kebabs in small pieces after cooling them and dabbing some oil off.
- Add oil, cumin seeds and asafoetida in the pan. Stir for 30-40 seconds. Then add the onion to sauté till golden brown.
- Onion once golden brown add salt and the chopped kebabs.
- Finally it’s time to season the kebab with Turmeric powder, Garam Masala, Coriander Powder, Red Chili Powder and Cinnamon Powder. Mix well!
- Time to add the chopped tomatoes. Stir fry for 1 minute then add water allowing kebab to get more taste. NOTE: Gravy is always good 🙂
Keep a lid on for 5-6 minutes. Watch the water level and stir in between.
Kebab special was ready but I had to wait 45 minutes till my hunger actually kicked in! I wanted to be fully ready and hungry to hog it up! It was so damn good, that my dad actually said “Acha bana hai” (translation- It tastes good). Any appreciation from my dad makes a huge difference, because he’s the silent kind. 🙂
It’s time you relish this kebab dish too. Until next time..
