The months of June and July were filled with more, thus far undocumented, cooking adventures as well as the enjoyment of delicious Indian dishes that I was not involved in the preparation of. I learned a few different bhajis and whatnot, but the main dishes I picked up were a couple of chicken preparations. I can provide recipes if necessary but I don’t remember them offhand so I’m not including them in this blog. Let’s have a look at each of these chicken delicacies.
This was a simple chilly chicken dish and basically comprised of chicken, capsicum (bell peppers) and onions. I don’t remember the preparation exactly but there was chilli powder, green chillies, soya sauce and some other stuff. It was a bit spicy and pretty tasty. It seems like a pretty easy dish to make, too, so hopefully I will be able to repeat the efforts once I’m on my own.
This was a pepper chicken dish that my mom and I made the night we returned from Orissa. Although there is a recipe existing, in theory, in the cookbook I’ve been building up this summer, in reality the actual preparation was very ad-hoc. My mom added about 5 different types of different pepper mixes from several tiny, oddly-shaped bottles she has collected. I am confident that I won’t be able to repeat this one on my own, but it was tasty enough for me to pretend like I can, for those who don’t read the words in this blog!
