Welcome to the world of simple and easy recipes...

We, the ‘aakrantham crew’ extend our special greetings to the beginners in cooking, the novice Bachelors, suffering husbands for being the guinea pig of wife’s culinary experimentations and the most sophisticated cooking experts who, out of their intricate and above-average try-outs have forgotten their beginning point in cooking. Yes! Our aim is to show the simplified paths of cooking, to depict the formulae for day-to-day needs to kill the hunger, to help out someone who is completely new to kitchen and those whose breaths stop hearing the name of dishes with words like ‘forelle’, ‘pecam’, ‘oreo’, ‘agua’ e.t.c in it.

Chicken Stew - Malabar Traditional

That’s fabulous! To hear from Jasna that her trial on chilli chicken was impressive. Now I’m really in a trap. I don’t think she’ll release me so soon from the post of her ‘cooking Guru’. The dedication series to Entry level cooks continues....

This time I’m here with an easy chicken curry recipe as she is more interested now in curries. Let’s try chicken stew? There is not much difference from Traditional Beef stew. Please follow the trailing instructions.   


Chicken (with bone) – ½ kg
Potato (peeled and cut into medium size) – 2 small sized
Green chilli (sliced) – 10-15 no.
Fenugreek – ¼ teaspoon
Onion (chopped) – ½ small sized
Ginger - 1 small piece
Coriander/mint/curry leaves chopped – 2 Tb spoon full
Grated coconut – 1
Curd – 1 Tb spoon
Salt to taste
Tomato – 1

How to:

1.       Put the grated coconut into a mixer jar, pour water just enough to dip the coconut and mix well. Squeeze this mixture to take thick coconut milk. The squeezed coconut milk should again be put in the mixer with more water and squeezed to take thin coconut milk. Keep both thick and thin milk separately in bowls.
2.       Put washed and cut chicken into an open vessel. Add potato, green chilli, minced ginger, coriander, fenugreek, mint and curry leaves cut into small pieces, curd and salt. Mix these ingredients well with hand and pour two cups of water. Boil it till chicken get properly cooked.
3.       Put the cut tomato into it and boil in low flame for 3 minutes. Add the thin coconut milk into this and boil for 5 minutes.
4.       Pour the thick coconut milk and mix. Simmer for 1-2 minutes. Switch off the flame.

Note:  depending on the piquancy of the green chillies, the count can be increased or decreased. And if needed, can be adjusted with a little amount of ground pepper also. Also to adjust thickness, one or teaspoon of corn flour can be mixed with some water and poured in to the curry while boiling.

Thus the easy and scrummy chicken stew is ready.
