Kadai chicken looks delicious.

Thanks Jay.

Katerina said...

I love bell peppers and with the addition of chicken makes this dish a very attractive one!

Mike Rovnak said...

This looks great. I have two questions. Do you leave the whole spices in while everything cooks or do you remove them once it starts to crackle?
Also, you say add garam masala. "Once the chicken is three-fourth done, add chopped capsicum / bell pepper, garam masala & salt." What is this and how much do I add. There are no measurements listed

Jay said...

Thanks for stopping by Mike Rovnak...
The whole spices, should remain in the kadai, while cooking..as it imparts its full aroma and flavor. And garam masala pwd is a blend of ground spices and is available at all Indian stores. You can add 1 tsp of garam masala pwd, once the chicken is three-fourth cooked..!
