“Chicken Masala” from India Cookbook

Kirstin: Bank Holiday Monday. And I was in the mood for a curry. This looked like an easy recipe, with just 7 ingredients, plus the chicken. I read the ingredient list and had bought the aniseed online. But unfortunately I did not read the recipe directions thoroughly enough because there was the ominous line saying I had to marinate the chicken for 2 hours. Sigh. So, it had about 30 minutes. Once marinated, this recipe used a poaching technique followed by frying the meat in ghee.

And already I have been asked when I am making this again. And the answer will be soon because it was a wonderfully, authentic Indian flavourful and easy meal to make. I feel this was a good way to start this book. More.

    I’m a concerned reader and hope all is okay as there have been no postings for quite some time. I have a similar cookbook club with three friends and we choose a cookbook every other month. Our current selection is What Katie Ate on the Weekend by Katie Quinn Davies—if you’d like to check it out for future consideration. All the best to you both. I hope you’ll continue with your blog for many more years to come.

    1. Aw! Thank you! Maureen and I have been a tad busy recently. I’ve been doing jury service and Maureen has been organising a book festival. Apologies.
      Thank you so much for your tip. I loved the pictures in the Katie Quinn book.

      And I’ve just been looking through next month’s book. No spoilers!

    I, too, have been wondering whether you will cook any more recipes from this month’s book. Nothing since 7 May!
