3 lbs. chicken, skin and visible fats removed/cut into serving sizes/washed in vinegar and water solution/drain.
1 tsp. black pepper
1 1/2 tsp. Maggie all-purpose chicken season
1 1/2 tsp. Maggie chicken season
1 tbs. salt
1 stalk scallion
Piece of fresh green thyme
2 slices hot pepper
2 slices green sweet pepper
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp. geera powder(cumin powder)
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1 cups water
2 tsps. Indian curry
In a bowl, season the chicken with salt, all-purpose, chicken seasoning, and black pepper. Use hands to rub the spices into the chicken pieces. Add 1 tsp cumin powder, then rub in the chicken pieces as well. Add the scallion, thyme, hot pepper, sweet pepper, and garlic. Cover the bowl and and shake it twice to distribute the seasoning all over the chicken pieces. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes (optional).
Put a Dutch pot with oil over low heat. Add the curry to the hot oil and allow it to dissolve completely (it is called cook the curry or burn the curry). This is very important, sometimes after the meat is cooked, you taste raw curry, this is because you did not cook the curry before adding the meat.Put the remaining geera into the oil and stir the pot for a couple of seconds. Put the seasoned chicken pieces into the pot and stir. Cover and cook the chicken on low heat until it begins to fry. Add 1 cup of water. Cover and cook chicken until water reduces and gravy thickens. Adjust taste by adding more salt if needed.
