I’m a pinch of this, pinch of that kind of girl. I had some chicken in the fridge that was about to go bad so I decided to throw something really quick together.
Black cumin seeds
Ground ginger (less than 1/2 tsp)
Crushed red peppers
1 tsp Flour ( I used tapioca flour, but any kind of flour to bind the ingredients together will work)
Light yogurt with grated cucumber
I placed the chicken in a food processor to grind the meat, but you can just buy ground chicken yourself if you want to skip this extra step. I just had whole chicken. Throw in the salt, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, garlic powder, ground ginger, flour and crushed red peppers in the food processor and give a few good pulses to mix everything together. I eyeballed most of the measurements in this recipe, so use your best judgement to how you want your flavors to come out.
I molded the chicken into several small cylindrical strips and cooked them on a skillet on low-medium heat, and left them covered towards the end so the steam could cook them. Once they were cooked and I let them cool, I cut them in small bite sized pieces.
In another pan I sauteed the onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms in ghee and some salt. Last step is to add the chicken pieces and VOILA!
To counter some of the spice, I made a cool and refreshing sauce with all-natural plain yogurt, and grated cucumber.
