Marinated Chicken Stir Fry



Ingredients:

Chicken strips....................................cut from two chicken breasts
Button mushrooms.............................5, bigger sized ones, sliced
Onions...............................................1, sliced across the width; horizontally
Garlic................................................chopped small, 2 tsps
Cumin seeds......................................1/2 tsp
salt
Olive oil

For Marinade:

Plum Chilli sauce..............................1 n 1/2 tbsp
Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce....................1 tbsp
Kachri Powder..................................2 tsps (this is a tenderizer)
Red Chilli pwdr.................................1/4 tsp

Marinate chicken strips with the sauces, tenderizer, and chilli. Keep for forty five minutes to an hour.

Skin the onion. Cut into half lengthwise. Now place the half on a cutting board and slice it across the width, so the slices look like semi circles.

Heat oil and drop in the cumin seeds. When they start to brown add the chopped garlic and fry to a golden brown on low heat. Now add the sliced mushroom, salt, and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Remove and keep aside.

Heat some olive oil in a pan, add the chicken strips, stir fry for a minute or two. Then add the sliced onions. Continue to toss and stir the strips and onions for another couple of minutes. Lower heat, cover and allow it to simmer for another minute or two.

The chicken should be done by now. Cut a strip with a spoon to check. Add the fried garlic mushroom and stir it in. Take off the fire.

I teamed this with Sesame Toasts. You can check it out under the label: Sweet n Salty.


Glossary:

Kachri is a variety of cucumber found in some other states too, besides Rajasthan. Fresh kachri look like small melons. Dried kachri powder has a mildly tangy taste. Fresh and dry kachri is used in quite a few Rajasthani dishes. If used on raw meat it is a good tenderizer. I use it to tenderize meat for kebabs, curries, stir fries etc.
