Ramadan Kareem to all !
We have reached the seventh day of fasting today just like the blinking of the eyes.Soon we will reach the 1st tenth ,then the next tenth and with another blink the last tenth.The month of Shah'ban the prayer on each Muslim's tongue was Allahumma Ballighna Ramadan...and now on the these 1st ten days it would be seeking for His Mercy,then forgiveness and then Protection from the Hell fire...
May the Almighty accept all our good deeds and bless us with his Jannah.Aameen...
As for Ramadan I haven't done any food photography or tried any new dish to bring it to my blog because I don't want and have no time to spent on things other than my tight schedule during Ramadan which is mainly for Ibaadahs.So this is a post from my drafts.And In Sha Allah I would be posting some other dishes also from my drafts.
We make two types of Chicken Pakoda,one with the Onions and the other without Onions.The one without Onions is just dipping the chicken in a thick batter and frying.Today's Pakoda is the one with Onions added.On to the recipe:
Chicken(Boneless) 300 gms cut into strips
Onion 3 thinly sliced
Ginger and Garlic paste 3/4 tsp each
Green chilly 3-4 pasted
APF/Maida 4-5 tbsp
Corn Flour 2 tbsp
Rice Flour 1 tbsp
Turmeric Powder 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves 2 sprig
Salt as needed
Oil to deep fry
Method of Preparation
-In a bowl add the sliced onion,Pasted Ginger,garlic and Green chillies and salt.Mix this well.
-Now add the Chicken pieces,all the powders along with salt and curry leaves.Mix well.At this point you can add 1 or 2 tsp of water,but if there is enough moisture,in the mix then no need.Or if its a little watery you can add an extra spoon of corn flour and rice flour.
-Heat oil in a kadai on medium flame and drop in portions of the chicken mix with your fingers and fry till golden brown.Remove onto a tissue paper.
-Serve with Tomato Ketchup.
