Another MEXICON fusion cooking from my kitchen, which was a great sucess. I would like to share with my fellow bloggers.

To make this dish we need:

1 whole chicken sliced.
2 onion sliced.
1 tspn ginger garlic paste.
1/4 tspn turmeric powder.
1 tspn garam masala powder.
fresh coriander to garnish.

Here is the main spice for this dish.

Chipotle sauce/jalapeno sauce:

2 tomatoes boiled.
1tspn red wine vinegar.
1/4 tspn sugar.
5-6 red chipotle peppers/jalapeno peppers.

grind all the above ingredients to make the chipotle sauce,Its readily available in any stores where mexican grocery is available .


First cut the whole chicken into 2 inch size pieces or as big as u like, wash the chicken slices well and marinade the chicken with ginger garlic paste, turmeric,salt,and few drops of oil and marinate it for 1/2 hr.Take a sauce pan and heat it, add oil to the sauce pan and warm the oil ,then add onion sliced and fry till light golden brown.
Next add the marinated chicken and fry for few seconds, when the chicken is half cooked add the chipotle sauce and enough water and cook well till tender.later add the garam masala powder and cook for few mintues.when the chicken is well cooked remove from the stove and set it in the serving bowl and garnish with fresh coriander.

This is rich in colour, but mild in taste, if u like to make it more spicy u can add some red chilli powder to this dish.Generally kids growing in US are not much spicy eaters so this dish is perfect for them.

chipotle is a fully ripened and smoke jalapeno. Does it taste as spicy as it looks. I dont eat meat, so i am going to substitute this with soy chunks

Hi Tanuja,
Nothing special for making baklava.
I got fresh drumsticks from indian store.
I think you can make from frozen also wiping it with dry cloth.But make sure quantity in little amount.
Coz weather may change to place to place.i kept on april first week.
Now in may 10 th we are able to eat.
Try it and tell me how you liked.
