Ingredients for Chicken Marinade:
Chicken Breast – 2 large pieces cut in small cubes.
1 tsp of Red Chili Powder
¼ tsp of Garam Masala
Salt to taste
1 tsp of Ginger & Garlic paste
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1 tbs of Corn Starch
1 tbs All Purpose Flour
1 Egg
½ tsp Orange food coloring (not necessary)
1 tbs of Lemon Juice
2 tbs of Olive Oil

Prepare chicken as follows:
Marinate Chicken with the above ingredients.
Shallow Fry the marinated Chicken piece in Olive Oil
(Note: when you shallow fry always use a non-stick pan as the egg will stick to the bottom of the pan if you use an Aluminum or Steel pan).
Remove and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Set the Chicken aside till you prepare the gravy.

Ingredients for Gravy:
1 tbs of Olive Oil
½ a cup of Non-fat Plain Yogurt
¼ tsp of Red Chili Powder
½ a tsp of All-Purpose Flour
¼ tsp of Cumin Seeds
¼ tsp of Mustard Seeds
3 – 4 Curry Leaves
2 Whole Red Chilies

Prepare the gravy as follows:
In a bowl mix the Yogurt, Red Chili Powder and All-Purpose Flour and set aside.
In the same pan you used to fry the chicken (add one spoon of Olive Oil if needed)
Add the Cumin seeds
Add the Mustard Seeds
Let the seeds sputter (pop).
Add 3 to 4 few Curry Leaves
2 Whole Red Chilies
Fry for a few seconds – DO NOT FRY FOR TOO LONG AS THE RED CHILI IS TOO HOT AND WILL CAUSE TOO MUCH SMOKE IN THE HOUSE & MAKE YOU COUGH!
Add the Yogurt Mixture
Let it sizzle for a few seconds
Add the chicken and let it absorb the yogurt.

Garnish with Green Onions.

Serve Hot.

Happy Cooking ☺
