I have literally been on an Indian Food OBSESSION lately.
Every time my boyfriend asked what I wanted to eat, my response without thinking was Indian! So rather than ordering in ALL the time, he decided that we should learn how to make it!
That way we can control what goes in it and maybe save a bit of money!
So luckily for me my boyfriend is a bit more courageous in the kitchen then I am and gave it a shot and needless to say it was DELICIOUS!
Here is the YouTube video he used for the recipe and how to make it!
What you need:
3 Boneless Chicken Breast
2 Pieces of Naan Bread
1 giant scoop of plain whole yogurt
1tsp. turmeric powder
1tbsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tbsp. paprika
1tbsp. coriander powder
1tbsp. cumin powder
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 tbsp. cumin
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 clove of ginger peeled and minced
1 Spanish onion diced
2 Fresh Tomatoes chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups of canned tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. coriander powder
1 tbsp. of garam masala
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Step 1: In a large bowl, mix the spices and the yogurt together.
Step 2: Coat the chicken breasts with the marinade.
Step 3: Refrigerate the chicken in the marinade for at least half an hour.
Step 4: Add two tablespoons of vegetable oil in a pan and keep it on medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and once it begins to sizzle, add the chopped ginger, garlic, and onion.
Step 5: Saute the onions for about ten minutes until they are a translucent, golden brown colour.
Step 6: Mix in the fresh tomatoes and gently increase the heat to medium-high. Add the salt and canned tomato sauce; mix well.
Step 7: Add the ground cumin, cayenne pepper, and coriander powder. Stir and lower the heat again.
Step 8: Place the chicken breasts on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Pop it in the oven at 375F for fifteen minutes. Then, broil the chicken for five minutes, for a crispy texture.
Step 9: Chop the chicken into bite sized pieces. Add the most undercooked chicken into the sauce first to allow it to cook through. Add the rest of the chicken and stir.
Step 10: Pour ¼ cup of heavy whipping cream for a creamy texture. Turn off the heat.
Step 11: Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro!
NOTE: If you don’t want it as spicey leave out most of the Cayenne Pepper.
Pop t he Naan bread into the oven under Broil for 2-3 minutes, serve and ENJOY!
