Lately I was looking for a recipe and finally found it in one my collection of Cookery books, It is a very simple dish and used to feature in many Menu cards of the 1980's, its known as the COUNTRY CAPTAIN a simple ingredient dish that goes well with Paratha or Nan, here it goes.........



Chicken 500 gms (Cut into good 5 pieces)

Oil 3 tbsp

Onion 1/2 cup (chopped)

Ginger & Garlic 1 tbsp (finely chopped)

Green Chilly 3 nos (seeded and chopped)

Turmeric 1/2 tsp

Salt to taste

Coriander 1 tbsp for garnishing


-Heat oil in a pan , add the onions and saute well, then add the ginger and garlic as you saute add the chicken pieces mix on high flame till chicken gets firm.

-Add 1 cup of water the chilly with salt to taste and mix well and let it simmer on slow fire till the chicken is cooked and dry.

-Serve garnished with coriander.

Try this out but which Chef stumbled and made the recipe is amazing since it contains no other spices.........must have been a short cut way to make a Chicken Dish.
