Protein Overload : Green Beans and Chicken

IMG_20171019_103421052-01.jpeg

Are proteins from vegetarian or animal sources better. The answer is, cook them both together.

This is a super quick recipe but it depends on the stringiness of the beans. If you checked before you bought them, then this recipe should take no more than 15 mins of total work.

You need:

  • Two chicken legs and thighs with deep slits on them.
  • Half a kilo of beans cut into one cm long pieces.
  • 2 teaspoons of red chilly powder.
  • 2 teaspoons of coriander powder.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric.
  • 2 teaspoons of ginger-garlic paste.

Heat oil. Fry the ginger garlic paste in it for a minute. Add the turmeric and red chilly powder. Mix well. In a minute of two the oil will separate. Add the coriander powder and it will become a thick paste. A minute later add the chicken and coat it thoroughly with this paste. Cook for about 5-6 mins. As the chicken cooks, the masala will stick all of the base of the pan. Add beans slowly. Like a fistful at a time. Use the moisture they release to deglaze the pan. When all the beans have been added to the pan and its been almost deglazed use some water and clean the spoon into the pan. There must be a little less than a cm of water in the pan.

Cook covered on low heat for 15 mins. Open and dry it up.
