Indian food has so much depth. My Authentic Spicy Indian Chicken goes deeper down the recipe chart to find a dish filled with unique, oh so good flavor.
Begin by combining the garlic, ginger, turmeric, cilantro, lemon & lime zest, and the lemongrass, lemongrass paste in your mortal & pestle. Begin mashing it well. Now, add the shallots and and mash well.
Add the jalapenos to a wok and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the wok and set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok and add the spice mixture. Cook for 1 minute and add the chicken base and cook for another minute. Next, add a cup of water and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the wok and set aside.
Add the chicken to the wok and brown on all sides. Once browned, add back in the spice mixture and simmer for 15 minutes. Finish by adding back in the jalapenos and cook for 1 - 2 minutes.
Serve with rice and enjoy!
