Chicken and Capsicum garnished with boiled Egg

This is a dish which mum rustled up one day. I think it will go very well with the pulao I posted earlier.

  • 500gms, boneless chicken
  • One big capsicum or two small capsicums (green bell pepper)
  • Two medium size onions
  • Two tomatoes
  • One boiled egg
  • 5or 6 cloves garlic
  • One tablespoon ginger paste

  • Cut chicken into pieces and boil the chicken
  • Dice the capsicums
  • Chop the onions into cubes
  • Chop one tomato and leave aside the other tomato. It will be later used for garnishing the dish
  • Finely chop garlic
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok or vessel of your choice
  • Add chopped tomato, onions, ginger paste, finely chopped garlic and salt to taste. At this stage, you may if you so desire, add a pinch of turmeric powder. Stir fry a bit
  • Add the chicken. Stir well and add a little water. Cover and cook till water evaporates
  • Just before removing from flame add capsicum and a teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • You may add chilli powder instead of ground black pepper
  • However black pepper imparts a flavour which is quite different from chilli powder
  • Remove from heat and pour out in a serving dish and garnish with boiled egg and tomato. Carve a flower out of the tomato as shown in photo
