Indian Style Chili Chicken

Everytime we went to any Indian restaurant, Dear Son will order this dish; without fail. It's tasty, it's spicy and tangy. Until one day I decided that I need to do it myself. I saw few recipes that almost matching the one that we ate in the restaurant. And this recipe that I will posted below, match the one that we had in the restaurants.

Indian Style Chili Chicken

For healthier version, I marinate the chicken only with turmeric powder, a little bit of oil and salt.I opted for air-fryer and bake it until the chicken are done.

 And I've omitted the mono-sodium glutimate/ajinamoto.

  For Chicken :
1 kg chicken, clean and cut to bite pieces and pat dry
1 tbsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
1 tbsp vegetable oil

In a large bowl, add chicken pieces, turmeric, salt and oil. Mix all the ingredients and marinade the chicken for at least 10 minutes.

Arrange the chicken in the air-fryer basket. Start at 150°C for 20 minutes and increase the heat to 
200°C for 15 minutes or until chickens are 3/4 cooked

Once cooked, keep the chicken in the air-fryer to keep it warm.

 If not using air-fryer, just bake the chicken in the oven until chicken are cooked and keep it warm until it's ready to be added in the sauce

For Sauce:
4 cm fresh ginger, peeled and julienne
3 garlic cloves, peeled and julienne
1 large onion, cubed
3 sweet peppers, washed and cubed
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp vinegar
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp chili flake *optional
2 tbsp chili sauce
2 tbsp sriracha
2 tbsp vegetable oil for frying

*1 tbsp cornflour + few tbsp of water

Mix the soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sriracha and chili sauce in a bowl. 
While the chicken are cook, heat oil in a frying pan.

Add the ginger and garlic, sauté until fragrant. Add chili flakes if using and stir well. Add the prepared sauce. Mix well.

Add the chicken pieces, sweet peppers and cubed onion. Give it a good stir and add a little bit of water to make a gravy. Season the sauce with salt and sugar.. Stir all the ingredients for few more minutes and remove from heat.

Serve with basmati rice

 * For thicker version, add cornflour mixture to the gravy and stir well

Coffee Cup Cake

I made this cake as a surprise gift to a girlfriend who celebrate her birthday today. As I know she loves coffee as much as I do, I think this coffee themed cake suits her very well too. Except that I didn't put any coffee ingredients in it. So that it won't make the kids sleep's deprivation

For this cake, I used pound cake, filled with praline cream and covered with lemon buttercream. I had fun decorating this cake, as I don't have a pressure to make it right as clients demands.

Hope she will enjoy it with her family tonight..

Another cake order this weekend. This time is Ferrari themed cake for Samy, 41st birthday. I made moist chocolate cake, filled with chocolate whipped cream and sliced banana, covered with chocolate ganache and fondant.

Hope the birthday boy will love it.
