Chicken Curry!

  • I love cooking and creating new recipes. I believe that if Sam can cook, anyone can cook, just needs to be creative. (That Sam cooking part was a joke, he is a great cook). There are so many ways of preparing chicken. Below is one of the ways of making chicken curry.
  • Ingredients: chicken drumsticks, onion, garlic, ginger, tomatoes (fresh of canned), yogurt, curry power, cumin seed or powder, cloves, bay leaves, coriander seed mix (can find in winco), cardamom (sukmel), salt for taste, chili paste. (If you are unfamiliar with any of those ingredients or you don’t have it, you can replace them with something else or just don’t worry about it.)
  • (For 8 chicken drumsticks: Onion can be 2-3, Sam loves onions, so I usually put 4 onions. three to four cloves of garlic, small portion of fresh ginger, 3 big tomatoes)
  • 1. Remove skin from chicken drumstick and make small cuts in the chicken.
  • 2. Rinse with cold water, but do not soak the chicken in water.
  • 3. Chop onion, garlic and ginger.
  • 4. Heat oil in a pan and add chopped onion, garlic, ginger, 1 tea spoon cumin seed and ½ tea spoon coriander seed. Fry them for 5 mins in medium heat.
  • 5. Now add: little salt, 1 tea spoon curry power, 5 bay leaves, chili paste, 5 cardamom, and 5 cloves. Heat for another 3 mins.
  • 6. Don’t forget to stir from time to time.
  • 7. Now add Chicken drumstick and in a medium heat keep it for 10 mins. Add salt and cover the chicken curry. Salt should help release water from chicken.
  • 8. Now add little yogurt and heat it for another 5 mins.
  • 9. If it is dry, you can add little water and heat it.
  • 10. Now add chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned) and heat it for another 5 mins.
  • 11. When the meat tends to fall apart from bone then you know it is ready to be served.
  • 12. Garnish with green coriander and serve it with rice.
  • 13. Enjoy.

Yay! Back with new ideas!!

Inspired by one of my friends, I am going to update my blog with interesting posts from now on. Once a week, I will pick a country and write about a current issues as well as a famous recipe from that country. I am going to start with my own country, Nepal. The dish of the week is “chicken curry” (my way). The topic is “abortion in Nepal”. I will interview many Nepalese in Moscow and write down their perspectives on the issue. This will help me learn things that I won’t get from text books. Oh! And every week I will have MCAT question of the week just like my friend!! I will soon have her blog add in my blog.

I took this quiz in Wick's blog. Very interesting!! I am: You are mRNA. You're brilliant, full of important, interesting information and you're a great friend to the people you care about. You may have sides to you that no one understands. But while you understand more than most people, you're only half-there most of the time.

If in case any of you were confuse with the meaning before, this is more clear.. hopefully! Posted by Hello

Nepal's king sacks government

Back to Monarchy!! Our king has decided that he should be the one to control the nation "Nepal". Wonder what will happen next.... Nepal's king sacks government Tuesday, February 1, 2005 Posted: 12:41 AM EST (0541 GMT) story.nepal.monarchafp.jpg King Gyanendra, seated, takes part in a holy water ceremony at the start of the year. KATMANDU, Nepal -- King Gyanendra says he has dissolved the government of Nepal and will take control of the Himalayan kingdom. In a national broadcast on Tuesday, the king accused the government of failing to conduct parliamentary elections and restoring peace in the country. It is the second time in three years the monarch has taken such a drastic move. The king acceded to the throne in 2001 after his brother King Birendra was killed in a massacre at the royal palace. The monarch, who is also the supreme commander of the 78,000-strong Royal Nepalese Army, said security forces would be given more power to maintain law and order. But he insisted human rights would be respected, according to AP reports. Even before the announcement, commentators said the king was unhappy with Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba for continually deferring elections -- a mandate given to him by the king when he appointed him the post in June. Deuba found himself in a deep political bind -- caught between the king and other political forces. He was fired in October 2002, sparking massive street protests, and was reinstated with the task of holding elections. His major coalition partner, the communist party, is deeply divided over the election call. In addition, Maoist rebels have stated in no uncertain terms that there will be a massive bloodbath if Deuba announces elections. Inspired by Chinese revolutionary leader Mao Zedong, the rebels want to replace Nepal's monarchy with a Communist state. Over an eight-year period, the insurgency has claimed more than 11,000 lives.
