I did lift this straight from a post I did on Simple Savings... Tasted so good I wanted to include it with Pictures...
1tsp each of Cardamom pods, Coriander seeds, ground Cumin, ground Nutmeg, ground Cinnamon
2tsp of Sesame seeds
1/2tspof black pepper
3 Star Anise
Whiz up the above in a small processor... I use a little "Rocket" blender...
2Tbsp Rice bran oil
1/2Tbsp Frozen Ginger
1Tbsp Frozen Turmeric
1Tbsp minced Garlic
1 large Onion, diced into large pieces
500g diced Chook
2 x 400g tins of diced Tomatoes
1 x 400g tin Chickpeas
- I heated the oil in a Med size enamel Casserole pot then fried the spice blend, Ginger, Turmeric & garlic for about a minute & a half then added the onions.
-Once the onions turned translucent the chicken was added.
-When the chicken was sealed the 2 tins of diced Tomatoes & the tin of Chickpeas was added, brought to the boil then left to simmer.
-Let it simmer for about 1/2 an hour then serve on Sultana & Sesame seed Couscous...
Sultana & Cashew Couscous...
3/4 cup Chicken stock... will make ours up with stock powder
3/4 cup of Couscous
1/3 cup of Sultanas
1/3cup of Cashews
-Pour ¾ cup of boiling water into a bowl & stir through 1 heaped teaspoon of Chooken stock, add the Sultanas & couscous then stir... Let sit until all the liquid has been absorbed then stir through Cashews...
The Sultanas could of been a tad plumper me thinks...
Next time I think I will let the Sultanas soak for a few min's in some hot water before adding them in with the stock & Couscous...
