Friday I when Ajoy asked me to make Chicken Rolls, I made this one for stuffing. I didn't want to make the red gravy so threw in some coriander and spices to go along with it. When he tasted the chicken, he was like this is out of world :) On the other hand, this was such a minor twist to how I cook chicken normally that I didn't even think about clicking photo and putting it as a blog post. My thought was because I made chicken after such a long time, probably he got too excited. But then, when we decided to invite friends for dinner last sunday, he was like you have to make that chicken again. After making it once again, and he giving same reaction after tasting it, I decided to click photos and may be post it. Now that even friends have same thoughts about the dish, I had to post the recipe :)

Coriander Chicken
1/2 Kg Boneless Chicken
1 Spoon Jeera Powder
1 Spoon Coriander Powder
1/2 Spoon Garam Masala
1 Spoon Red Chilli Powder
1 Spoon Black Pepper Powder
3-4 Garlic Cloves
1 Spoon Ginger Paste
1 Big Tomato
2 Cup Coriander Leaves
Salt to taste

  • Marinate the chicken with salt, jeera powder, coriander powder, garam masala, black pepper powder and keep aside for half an hour.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add in marinated chicken. Cook on medium high till chicken browns a bit.
  • Meanwhile, in mixer mince tomato, garlic and ginger paste together.
  • Add in coriander leaves and grind it to fine paste.
  • Add it to the chicken, add some salt and cook till it reduces to dry gravy.

You can use this to make chicken rolls with onion or just it as a side dish with rice or roti. It just goes with anything.

Since we came here, we weren't able to get the puris for making SPDP - Shev Batata Dahi Puri which is among favorite chaat items for Ajoy. Using paani puri's puri for SPDP doesn't seem right and I am sure it wouldn't taste as good either. So I decided to give try making these puris. Tried few times and now I think I have got the recipe right which gets best results, and is certified by many friends who had chance to taste :)

Puri for SPDP (Shev Batata Dahi Puri)
1 Cup Maida
2 Spoon Rawa
1/4 Cup Melted Butter

  • Mix Maida, Rawa and salt together.
  • Add in melted butter and mix well.
  • Add in 1/4 cup water and knead soft dough.
  • Grease the dough with 1/4 spoon oil and cover and keep aside for an hour.
  • Make round balls and roll them thin and big. Cut using cup or cookie cutter into small round shapes.
  • Heat oil and fry the puris on both sides over medium flame till light brown on both sides. Take out on kitchen towel and let it soak oil from puris.
  • Heat oven to 350F/175C and bake the puris in it for 10 minutes.

I have noticed that if you roll the puris thin then they wont bubble up and that's how you want them for SPDP.
Also I baked the puris again because that make them crispier, that is any rawness and moisture left after frying goes away and puris.

While following different blogs on my reader i somehow stumbled on Anjali's blog about the event on cakes, cookies and desserts. I haven't participated in any event as yet, but with my recent post on Mango Mousse Cake and the compliments I had been getting for this cake, I wanted to share it with more audience. I want more people to try it out and see how easy it is to make this delicious cake and hence for the first time, I have decided to enter into this event.
