|Recipes and food ideas|
|Thought I would start this up even though I have nothing original to offer at this point.|
Mostly these day I am getting ideas off the net.
A favourite in my house is Chicken Saag. It isn't on CK but there are a few recipes out there. The one I use is here. http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/22890/chicken+saag
Ingredients (serves 4)
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium brown onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2cm piece fresh ginger, peeled, finely chopped
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
150g baby spinach
1 cup chicken stock
500g chicken thigh fillets, trimmed, cut into 3cm pieces
1/2 cup plain yoghurt
Steamed basmati rice and chapati bread, to serve
Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add garlic, ginger, paprika and turmeric. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add spinach and stock. Cook for 5 minutes or until spinach has wilted. Set aside for 10 minutes or until cooled slightly. Process until almost smooth.
Heat remaining oil in pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and just cooked through. Reduce heat to medium-low.
Add spinach mixture to pan. Season with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until simmering. Remove from heat. Stir in yoghurt. Serve with rice and bread.
I usually add other vegetables and use low fat yoghurt. I also tend to use chilli powder in place of the paprika.
I think cauliflower fried rice is also worth a try. Again there are quite a few recipes out there and by adding extra vegetables and/or meat you can make it a complete meal. Not sure which recipe I ended using now but most are pretty similar.
