Ingredients

Directions

Wash and dry chicken pieces properly. Put the chicken pieces in a medium sized saucepan. Add salt to taste, green chilies, peppercorns, and water and place on stove on high heat. Once the water starts to boil, reduce heat to low and cook chicken until tender and the liquid has evaporated. If the chicken sticks and is not cooked add a little more water.

While the above is being done, in a separate "karahi", which is an Indian/ Pakistani Wok, (or you can use a Chinese wok also) add the olive oil, tomatoes, some salt and red chili powder (around one teaspoon for medium hot or two teaspoons for hot). Cook on medium heat until the tomatoes are tender and reduced to a sauce like consistency. Add the cooked chicken pieces to the sauce. Reduce heat to very low so that the sauce absorbs and coats the chicken pieces. Add the julienned ginger and green chilies to the chicken. Simmer for around five minutes.

Before serving sprinkle on chopped cilantro and serve in the Karahi, with hot pita bread or any available Indian bread from the market.

The dish is best eaten fresh off the stove with "Dal" as an accompaniment.
