A young student on a group I follow in Facebook had a very interesting dilemma. He likes to eat chicken but cooking in the hostel, where he stays is frowned upon. So he boils the chicken. That is a good but very boring thing to do day after day.
So I decided to help him break the rules and enjoy breaking them as well.
- One boneless chicken breast, cut into small pieces.
- Two small carrots, cut into small pieces.
- Three large green chilies (Mirchi Bajji), finely diced.
- One medium potato, cut into half a centimeter thick rings.
- Pepper powder
- Two medium sized Ramekins
Combine butter, chicken, carrots, chilies, salt and pepper. Butter the Ramekin. Create a base with potatoes. Pack in the chicken mix. Cover with potatoes. Use cling film to close the top. Note cling film should only over cover the top and under no circumstance touch the base of the ramekin.
Place ramekins in a large pan. Fill water till 1/2 cm less than the top of the ramekin. Cook covered. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat to the lowest setting and let it simmer for about 20 mins. Switch off and let the ramekins cool before removing.
Enjoy the flavor packed chicken dish with your neighbors none the wiser.
