Cook Nepali Style Chicken Chilli at home


So if you have been to Nepal, don’t tell me you haven’t tried chicken chilli at one of the restaurants in Kathmandu or Pokhara or somewhere in between 
It is one of the most famous snacks in Nepal alongside mo:mo, chowmein and thupka. There is nothing much to it, really! Get Chicken Leg fillets, dice and marinate it (overnight is always good) before frying it in a bit of oil. Once cooked, you toss it up with some onion, capsicum, tomatoes on a separate pan alongside some spices, and its ready

Prep time: 20 mins, Cook time: 30 mins

Ingredients
• Chicken Thighs in small cubes (400 gm)
• Capsicum – (Red 1, Green 1)
• Onion (1 small, cut in cube sizes)
• Shallots/Coriander (some to garnish)
• Tomato (1, cut in cube sizes)
• Cumin seeds – (half a tea spoon)
• Ginger-Garlic Paste (1/2 table spoon each)
• Red Chili Paste (1/2 table spoon)
• Tomato Ketchup (4 table spoons)
• Corriander/Cumin powder
• Oil (3 table spoons)
• Salt (to taste)

Directions:
• Marinade the chicken with bit of oil, ginger/garlic paste, salt, chilli paste
• When ready, on low heat fry the chicken until cooked
• On a new pan, start off with 2 table spoon of oil
• Cumin seeds in, alongside the onions
• Salt to taste
• Throw in the chicken, you just cooked on the side
• Put in more ginger/garlic, chilli paste, cumin/coriander powder (all the spices)
• Toss for a while
• Throw in the capsicum, fresh tomatoes & tomato ketchup, and toss for 30 seconds and you are done
• Put in fresh coriander/shallots just before serving
