Dishes From Fellow Samayalites -- Shredded Chicken/Chicken Chuka

Last week fully has been a try out week with dishes from fellow samayalites. This dish was from Inji Pennu.I call this Chuka because it has dry,fried consistency.I made this as a side for fried rice.Awesome combo.

Try Out Procedure
  • Chicken .. 1 pound boneless,skinless chicken breast cut into 2 inch cubes
  • Acid .. 2 tspn Vinegar/lime juice to cook chicken
  • Onion .. 2 medium,finely chopped
  • Green Chillis .. 7 to 8 ,chopped (add more if you need it hot)
  • Black pepper pwd .. 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Salt
  • Tempering(thalika) .. oil,mustard,curry leaves
Cook the chicken in water with any acid(i used lime juice) and salt until the pieces turn white which indicates it is fully cooked.Drain the excess water and Cool it.Shred the chicken with your hands.It is very easy to do.
Heat oil in kadai,do tempering,add chillis ,onions saute for 3 mins.Add the shredded chicken,salt,pepper.Saute until the chicken turn fried,crispy.It may take upto 10 mins or so.
Goes well as a starter for wine.
