Tomato and Garlic Chicken


I tasted this dish at my friend Mridula's home on her daughter's birthday party and I just loved it. She has a lot of yummy recipes in her Facebook Page - Mila's Kitchen. Do check it out...
If you like tangy and saucy chicken, you are sure to love this recipe.

Ingredients:

1. Boneless chicken - 500 gms cut to bite size pieces
    Chilly powder - 2 tsp
    Soy sauce - 2 tsp
    Finely chopped  garlic - 1 tsp
    Salt

2. Corn flour - 3 tbsp
     Oil for shallow frying chicken

3.  Finely chopped Garlic - 1 tbsp
     Green chillies - 3, finely chopped
     Soy sauce - 1 tbsp
     Tomato sauce - 2 tbsp
     Tomatoes - 2
      Chilly powder - 1/2 to 1 tsp
      Spring onions - to garnish

Preparation:

1. Marinate the ingredients in item 1 for about 1-2 hrs.
2. Add some water and pressure cook the marinated chicken for 1 whistle. When the pressure is released, drain the chicken peices from the stock and coat it with corn flour. Reserve the chicken stock for the gravy.
3. Heat oil in a pan to shallow fry the chicken. Fry till the chicken is cooked, but still soft. Drain and keep aside.
4. In the same pan and oil, add  garlic and saute till you get the aroma. Add green chillies, soy sauce and tomato sauce and combine well. 
5. Blend the tomatoes in a food processor or mixer and  add it to the pan along with chicken stock. Add a little chilly powder. Bring to a boil.
6. Add the left over cornflour used for coating the chicken. Add the chicken pieces and simmer for few minutes. Do a taste check and adjust salt and spiciness and the gravy consistency. Garnish with spring onions.

Tastes great with Fried rice, paratha and naan.
