Spicy Chicken With Raisins


I know, its been constantly chicken dishes (Honey Chilli Chicken), please bear with me.  A meal on my own means I opt for chicken (Butter Chicken, Ayam Masak Merah & Cashew Nut Masala Chicken) because other half-half is chicken little or chicken big free. Obviously, he was away while I was badly yearning for a spicy chicken dish (Spicy Chickpeas Long Beans, Spicy Crab Parathal, Eggplant in Spicy Sauce & Chilli Honey Clams). Not the same though as the previous Chinese style Chilli Chicken Raisins, this one is the ultimate spiciness spices Indian Spicy Chicken With Raisins.

Ingredients
300g (about 1/4)chicken - cut into bite sizes
5 dried red chillies (or as preferred) - snip into 3-4 pieces
70g (1/2 handful) yellow raisins
1 tbsp onion paste
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1/4 tsp garam masala or all spice powder
2 stalks coriander leaves - sliced thinly
3 tsbp oil
Salt for taste

Method
Mix onion paste, ginger paste and garlic paste with chicken.
Keep aside
Heat oil and when heated, fry chillies and raisins for 1-2 mins.
Add chicken mixture and garam masala.
Season with salt.
Simmer and cook till chicken becomes soft and tender.
