Rain Drops

Posted on

It’s 1 pm and it seems like its 6 pm with all the clouds outside.  It was just like this yesterday and I was awaiting rain but out of the whole day there was only some drizzling.  I’m still waiting on some heavy downpour. 

I haven’t had much time to cook food for myself since I’m mostly cooking for the family now which basically consists of pakistani food.  I plan on making lemon bars sometime soon but whenever I get enough time to make them.  Hopefully by Sunday soo look out for those.  


Chicken Aqni

1 whole chicken pieces

2.5 cups rice

1 small red onion

curry leaves, whole black pepper, cardamom, cloves, whole cumin

one tomato

1 tbs plain yogurt

1 tsp garlic and ginger

1 tsp red pepper

1 tsp ground corainder and cumin

4 tsp salt divided

1/4 tsp turmeric

1.5 tsp Shan Mutton Biryani Masala

2 tsp paprika

cilantro, green peppers, peas, lima beans, green beans (optional, can use any veges you like.  can use potatoes, carrots, eggplant.  whatever you have on hand)

Make sure your chicken is defrosted before you start.  Wash and clean the chicken before or anytime in between any step while waiting.  Wash the rice and let it soak in water.  Thinly slice the onion and add to a pot with some oil to carmelize it.  Add some curry leaves, 5-6, cloves, cardamon, black pepper, whole cumin.  When the onions have browned, add garlic, ginger, yogurt and sliced tomatoes.  Add in your spices, red pepper, turmeric, cumin, coriander, paprika, 2 tsp salt. Mix well and add in the chicken.  Let it cook for 10 mintues with the pot covered.  Check every so often to make sure it’s not burning.  Add two and half cups of water, you might need 3 cups.  Add in green peppers, cilantro, peas, green beans, lima beans.  Once the water is boiling, drain the water from the rice and add it to the pot.  Cook until rice is cooked and you’re ready to serve!
