Pasted Chicken

Please don’t bother to check out any other web-site for this recipe, as this one’s unique in its kind! I’ve given it some variation to suite the taste buds and am sure you’ll love it.
It’s a delicious, quick and easy chicken dish-sans fancy ingredients. Its definitely one of my go-to meal- I almost always have the ingredients on hand! I shall be posting the actual pics of all my recipes in the near future...but please dont wait for them...just start trying the recipes out!

Ingredients:
Chicken (small pieces)– 1kg
Ginger+garlic paste- 3tbsp
Red chilli powder- 2 tbsp
Curry leaves- a handful(10-12nos)
Green chilli- 2 slit lengthwise
Oil for frying- 1 cup
Tomato ketchup- 2 cup
Tomato paste- 3 tbsp
Spring onion- 1 bunch cut into long diagonal pieces
Capsicum- 2 nos (cut into small pieces)
Salt to taste

Method:
Heat oil in a frying pan and add chilli powder and salt*. Add the chicken pieces to this and mix well until all the chicken has been coated equally with the chilli powder. Fry the chicken until reddish brown. Now add the ginger+garlic paste & green chilli and stir for 2mins. Add the tomato paste and ketchup. Toss well and add curry leaves. Keep fryingng on high flame until the ketchup and tomato paste have become sticky and golden. This may roughly take 5-10mins. The chicken should by now have got a reddish appearance. Lastly garnish with spring onion and capsicum and toss for 2mins(don’t overcook as the leaves may change colour).

*heat the oil on low flame at this stage, else the chilli powder may get burnt.
