Asian Stir fry

Chinese is my favourite cuisine after south Indian cuisine. Names of the dish might be different, basically they are made up of same sauce with different ingredients. I always try to make chinese curries and fried rice, to avoid restaurant trips.. In this economy its better to stay indoors and enjoy restaurant style home made food. Its very easy to prepare this curry if u have minimal ingredients. Lets see how its made....



Ingredients:

4 chicken Thighs
12-15 baby mushrooms, quartered
1/2 cup broccoli, steamed
1 cup roasted peanuts
1 medium-sized onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp crushed black pepper
2 tbsp light cooking oil
salt to taste

Preparation:

MARINATE chicken with salt, turmeric and chilli powder, and set aside for half an hour.

HEAT oil, and saute onions and garlic till fragrant. Add in mushrooms and fry till lose moisture and turn brown.

ADD chicken, cumin powder and crushed black pepper, soy sauce, tomato paste and mix well to incorporate spices. Let chicken fry for 5-10 minutes, turning once, till it starts to brown. Add about a cup of water, cover, and let simmer till chicken is cooked through. Add more water if it begins to dry up. Add broccoli and cook for another 5 mts. Remove from heat, add peanuts.



Serve hot with Egg fried rice..
