Time to burn those calories … again!

Standard

And this, friends is my idea of a reward for going to the gym for a week! Haha .. It was sadly not followed by any dessert later though .. *sniff sniff* .. Jokes aside, tried a new recipe for fried chicken last night which both, my husband and I really liked, so thought it was worth a share! Loved the fact that the chicken was skinless yet still full of flavour … Plus, the recipe actually asked for the chicken to be deep fried but I chose to shallow fry and it did not affect the result. A must try, if you haven’t decided what to cook for dinner tonight …

Fried Chicken

Ingredients:

Chicken (without skin): 1 kilo cut into 16 pieces
Salt: 1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder: 1 and 1/2 tsp (you can add a bit more if you want to make it more spicy)
Ginger & Garlic Paste: 1 tsp
Vinegar: 2 tbsp
Crushed corriander seeds: 1 tbsp
Crushed cumin seeds: 1 tsp
Gram Flour: 5 tbsp
Water: 1 cup
Egg: 1
Bread crumbs: as required

Method: 
Boil the chicken in 1 cup of water and set aside. Do not throw away the water as it can be used in making the paste.
In a separate bowl, add and mix the salt, red chilli powder, ginger & garlic paste, vinegar, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, gram flour and egg. You can add a little water if necessary to make a smooth paste.
Marinate the boiled chicken pieces in the paste for at least 30 minutes or longer.
Dip the chicken pieces in bread crumbs and fry until a nice golden brown in colour.

Enjoy!

Time to start the holiday prep with Mini Tarts and Chocolate Ganache!

Standard

With the holiday season coming up, your house is going to be packed with family and friends. We, at The Bake-a-logue, want you to enjoy your time with the family and not end up stuck in the kitchen the whole time. To help achieve that we will be coming up with the perfect nibbles which are ever-so easy to make and will wow your guests enough to think you have made such an effort 🙂 …

The first of those recipes is ‘Mini Tarts with Chocolate Ganache‘ – you all know by now I look for excuses to add chocolate to anything so that was obviously my choice of filling. But it’s still a good idea to add different fillings to your tart cases to add a bit of variety. Lemon filling would be a good example. Do try out this recipe to start your holiday on a winning note. Be creative and happy baking! 🙂
