 Ingredients List

  • 2 1" cubes fresh ginger,
  • -peeled & coarsely chopped
  • 4 tb Water
  • 6 tb Vegetable oil; *
  • 2 1/2 lb Chicken parts; skinned **
  • 5 Cloves garlic, peeled and
  • -finely chopped
  • 3 c Fresh coriander (w/o roots &
  • -lower stems); very finely
  • -chopped (about 200g)
  • 1/2 Fresh, hot green chilli;
  • -very finely chopped, up to
  • -1
  • 1/4 ts Cayenne
  • 2 ts Ground cumin
  • 1 ts Ground coriander
  • 1/2 ts Ground turmeric
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2/3 c Water
  • 2 tb Lemon juice


* Try 3T oil. ** 6 kip filets; pound thicker part slightly to flatten.
[Translation: A kip filet is a skinned, boned, chicken breast half.]

Put the giner and 4 tablespoons of the water into the container of an
electric blnder.

Blend until you have a paste. [Not very paste-like, but still worked.]

Heat the oil in a wide, heavy, preferably non-stick pot over a medium-high

When hot, put in as many chicken pieces as the pot will hold in a single
layer and

brown on both sides. Remove the chicken pieces with a slotted spoon and put
them in a bowl. Brown all the chicken pieces this way.

Put the garlic into the same hot oil. As soon as the pieces turn a medium
brown color, turn heat to medium and pour in the paste from the blender.
Stir and fry it for a minute. Now add the fresh coriander, green chili,
cayenne, ground cumin, ground coriander,

turmeric, and salt. Stir and cook for a minute. Put in all the chicken
pieces as well as any liquid that might have accumulated in the

chicken bowl. Also add 2/3 cup water and the lemon juice. [I added this
first and stirred before putting in chicken.] Stir and bring to a boil.
Cover tightly, turn heat to low, and cook for 15 minutes. Turn the chicken
pieces over. Cover again and cook another 10-15 minutes or until chicken is
tender. If the sauce is too thin, uncover the pot and boil some of it away
over a slightly

higher heat.
much attention for the last half hour.
