Cookbook Countdown: Chettinad Chicken

Our main meal today included Chettinad Chicken from 30 Minute Indian (p43), along with plain basmati rice and the Spiced Beets that I've made before. (Chettinad is a region in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, which is on the southeast end of the Indian subcontinent.)

You start out frying sliced onion, curry leaves, and a chopped green chili until the onion is soft. Then you add grated ginger and crushed garlic cloves. (I will coarsely chop the garlic next time.) Then you add some boneless and skinless thigh meat, cut in bite-sized chunks, along with ground coriander, and stir-fry till the chicken is cooked on the outside. Then add some chicken stock (from a cube today) and garam masala, cover, and simmer until the chicken is cooked through. Salt and pepper, and serve. Good stuff.

Stop by Cookbook Countdown to see what other folks are making from their July cookbook. And if you've got books on your shelf wanting to be used, why don't you choose one and join in?
