Recipe: Chicken Masala (India)

I'm dropping a recipe for an amazing chicken masala gravy, which got me amazing feedback from my guests (many of them actually being from India)

Vegetable Oil
1 TeaSpoon Mustard seeds
1 TeaSpoon Cumin seeds
2 green chillies
2 Onions - grind the bigger one, and chop the smaller one
1 small piece of Ginger - peeled and grinded
3 garlic pieces - grinded
1 bell pepper
1 teaspoon turmeric
1-2 tablespoon(s) Chicken Masala mix
1/2 tablespoon Chilli Powder (optional, to your taste)
400 g cubed chicken meat
1/2 cup Tomato Sauce (optional)
Rice (as needed)

Place a little oil in a hot pan or wok. Add the mustart seeds which will crackle as soon as they're added. Throw some cumin seeds in, being careful enough not to burn them.

Add onions. Make a paste out of the grinded ginger and garlic and add. Stir the mix and add salt to your taste. At this point you should add enough salt for the whole dish.

Once the onion has released its water, add the bell pepper (chopped)

At this point, we should add our Masalas. We mix chicken masala with turmeric and chilli powder, and add it to the pan.

Once the vegetables are well cooked, add chicken cubes and try to spread the masala mix as much as possible on top of the chicken pieces. Cook for 10 minutes until its well prepared.

Finally (optional) you can add a little tomato sauce, until the mix feels like a paste.

Remove from heat and serve with rice
