Spicy Curry Chicken / Recipe

edited March 2012 in EggHead Forum

Sunday night I decided to make Curry Chicken.  My neighbors are from Guyana and I've had curry chicken at their home many times.  They recently gave me some of their home made mixed spices (Curry and Masala).  They mix somwhere aruond 15 spices, they bleach, parch and mix through quite a process - needless to say they are very good.  Unfortunately I don't have that secret sauce and don't have enough spice to share with you.  I went across the street to ask a question before getting started and they decided to come over and helped me with my first attempt (pretty easy when you have experts with you). - Below is the recipe and photos during the cook.  I was so anxious to eat - i forgot to take any photos' after plating. THeir recipe is better than any restaurant.    Enjoy

Garam
Masala Garam
masala is a dry spice mixture which is used throughout India and in parts of
Asia . In India , masala refers to any type of spice, while Garam implies heat
or warmth: Garam masala means “hot spice.”

The
spice mixture is not hot in the way that chili heavy spice mixtures are,
although it can be aromatic and pungent. It usually adds a kick to foods, and
is also believed to create a sense of happiness and well being.

 

Like
other crucial elements of Indian cuisine, Garam masala has been used for
centuries and adopted by neighboring nations. Northern Indian & Punjabi
cuisine use large amounts of Garam masala, and less of the pungent curry
mixtures found in the southern part of India
