Dragon Chicken (Indo- Chinese Cuisine)

Dragon Chicken is a real tasty appetizer for all those who love Indo- Chinese cuisine.I got familiarised with this very chicken recipe in one of the TV shows and the look itself dragged me out to try out this very recipe.A tempting recipe to fall in love with and tastes very good too.I heard another rumour about this recipe too.If any one is familiar with Mango Tree Restaurant in Cochin,Kerala(owned by filmstar Dileep),it is said this recipe is one of the famous cuisines out there.I never had the opportunity to visit that restaurant and will surely wish to visit it sometime.

The recipe is very simple easy and a dry spicy dish .It fits into all occasions and perfect as an appetizer, side dish or main dish with fried rice.The boneless long slender cut chicken pieces are marinated and shallow fried or deep fried and then blended into sauces.I opted the shallow frying to avoid excess oil..

  

Ingredients
for marination
boneless chicken 2lbs
ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
corn flour 2 tsp
egg white 1
pepper powder 1 tsp
salt


for sauce
ginger 1'' shredded
garlic 3 cloves shredded
tomato sauce 1 1/2 tsp
soy sauce 1 1/2 tsp
chilli flakes 2 tsp
cashew nuts 1/2 cup
green onions / celery  1 bunch
oil 5 tsp




Method
  • Marinate the chicken for 2 hours using the above ingredients.
  • Heat oil in a non stick pan and fry the chicken pieces.
  • Place it on a paper towel .
  • Saute shredded ginger and garlic in the remaining oil for a minute.
  • Add the cashew nuts and fry them till brown.
  • Add chilli flakes and the sauces.
  • Put the chicken pieces and toss well.
  • Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Garnish with green onions or celery ans serve hot with fried rice or as snack or an appetizer.




Servings 4 adults

TIPS
- Don't add salt to the gravy as soy sauce and chicken pieces contain salt.Check salt if required.
