This is really delicious, cheap and easy to make and best of all, low fat and low calorie (the chicken is really the only ingredient with a significant calorie count) Serve with plain boiled rice for dieters and add hot buttered fluffy naan bread for the foodies!! I don't pretend to claim that this is an authentic Indian recipe, I just like to eat it and so do my friends!
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
- 1 large onion, sliced into strips
- 1 green capsicum, sliced into strips
- 1 red capsicum, sliced into strips
- 2 tablespoons garam masala powder
- 1 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes (or chopped fresh chili pepper to taste)
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chopped tomatoes
- lemon juice
- cooking spray or oil
- Fry the chicken in a non-stick large frying pan or wok.
- When the chicken is nearly cooked, add the onion, peppers, garam masala, garlic, and chili and stir-fry for a few minutes Now add the tomatoes, salt and pepper and a dash of lemon juice.
- Bring to the boil then simmer very slowly for an hour or so- you want the sauce to reduce by half to give a thick consistency and concentrated flavour.
Very easy to make and very low fat ... perfect. I did add a little bit oif cumin powder but that is just personal taste. Only 2 points per serve on the weight watchers points plan!
This was delicious. We couldn't find any garam masala, so we improvised with cardamon,curry and pepper. We added some more garlic than called for too. Thanks lynzmk.
I added just a little more chile for extra kick, since my hubby and I like really spicy foods. I liked the fact most of the cooking was simmering time. You also don't need many ingredients. Great dish, even if the picky kids didn't eat it! :)
