I often get tricked into ordering food simply because of the way it sounds..I have been a victim at restaurants countless times trying to be adventurous and have landed with something totally different mostly because I get excited and do not read the full description of what the menu item entails.
|Curry leaves, not to be confused with curry powder. I get them at Indian grocery stores.|
I used Basmati rice and black lentils (soaked and rinsed for few hours). The khichdi can be eaten itself, or eaten alongside chicken or a vegetable dish. I had been eying this karahi chicken in a Pakistani manner for such a long time so it was a perfect opportunity to give it a try and quickly sauteed green beans & potatoes with a dash of cumin as another side.
Cooking chicken curry (Indian style) is my worst nightmare and I am never too happy with it..but I give this recipe two thumbs up not only for its deliciousness but I am really amazed how it comes together without using any masalas (spices) except for turmeric powder, ginger, and garlic. I can't say enough about it other than I highly recommend it to you. So give it a try!
The boyfriend and I savored every bite of this dinner on a quiet Friday night.The only recommendation from the boyfriend was to pick out whole spices from the khichdi to make the eating process less messy.
