Asian Chicken Vegetable Pasta

A very famous and probably a favorite of all age groups. Normally people add all the veggies and the sauce right after the chicken is cooked and then pasta at the end which makes veggies soggy and discolored and obviously everything taste like sauce and lose their own taste, so this is my technique below where you know when to add what and you get a perfect pasta

Ingredients:

500 gms pasta boiled (any pasta)
½ cup oil
1 chicken breast cut into thin strips
Salt
Cracked black pepper to taste
½ cabbage sliced (3 cups approx.)
2 carrots julienne (1 ½ cup approx.)
1 capsicum sliced
3 green onions sliced
1 tspn minced garlic
1 tspn crushed ginger

For sauce:

½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup vinegar
¼ cup chilli sauce of your choice
2 tbspns ketchup
1 tspn ground black pepper
¼ tspn white pepper
salt

Procedure:

In a cup combine all the ingredients given for sauce and mix well.

Heat oil in a wok and fry chicken strips with garlic and ginger. Add salt when the chicken turns white. Now add cabbage and carrots and stir fry for 5 minutes.

Add the boiled pasta and mix. Add the sauce we prepared earlier and stir for 2 minutes on medium heat. Add scallions and capsicum, top it with some freshly cracked black pepper and mix.

Cook further for another minute with constant mixing and stirring and serve hot.

Chicken Chaap is a Bengali dish where chicken pieces are marinated and cooked in rich poppy seeds based gravy. This is a dry type of fish which is served with Biryani, pulao, Naan, or any Indian bread of your choice.

INGREDIENTS

1 tsp Caraway seeds,
1 Bay Leaf,

1 tsp rose water
1 cup oil

METHOD
Marinade the chicken in half of ginger-garlic paste and salt for at least an hour or more.

In a pan large enough to hold the chicken pieces, heat oil.

Season with caraway seeds, Bay Leaf, cloves and cardamom.

Fry the onion paste. The oil should float on top.

Stir and fry for 15 minutes. As the water dries out, it will splatter, so cover with a screen.

Once the onion turns golden, add the remaining ginger garlic paste.

Put in red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt.

Now ad grated tomatoes.

As the gravy thickens, and oil leaves sides, lower the flame, and add in poppy-seed paste.

Then spoon in hung yogurt.

Fry the gravy till oil is leaving sides.

Once the gravy looks thick, add garam masala powder (save ½ tsp for later) and stir well.

Add one glass of water and lower the flame.

Simultaneously, while the gravy is cooking, in a another pan, heat Ghee.

Fry the chicken pieces one by one, till they are light golden in color.

Add the golden chicken ‘chaap’ pieces to the gravy.

Bring it to a boil.

Lower the flame, add ¼ cup milk. Cover, and cook for an hour.

The chicken needs to stew in its juices, cooking slowly to achieve the flavors.

Check for tenderness.

Finally, add remaining garam masala, rose water and kewda essence.

Serve hot with Biryani, Naan, rotis/Chappatis or Rice.

Note:

*You may always fry the chicken first and then start with the gravy

*Using whole chicken legs gives a different texture to the dish. If using pieces, try to use korma pieces

MANGO MOUSSE 

Mango mousse is a crowd-pleasing dessert. From kids to adults, everyone loves this dessert. It is also easy to make this dessert. Gelatin is used in these type of sweet desserts to give it a thick consistency. As you know, Gelatin is a protein made from animal products and popularly debated for many health issues. I totally avoided gelatin in this recipe, so this mousse will be creamy and not as thick as you would find in restaurants. However, I liked it this way and did not find a significant difference, though.

INGREDIENTS

Mango 2
Whipping Cream 2cups
Powdered sugar 1/2 cup

METHOD

Wash, peel and chop the Mango flesh roughly. Discard the mango seed and skin.

In a blender or mixer puree the mango flesh into a smooth paste. Two fresh alphonso mangoes yield 1 cup of puree. If you are using store bought mango pulp, use a cup of pulp for 2 cups of whipped heavy cream.

Gently mix the whipped heavy cream using a spoon until smooth. I used land o lakes whipped heavy cream.

Mix whipped heavy cream, mango puree and powdered sugar together gently and chill it in a refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Garnish it with mango puree.
