I have always liked spicy food, especially if its home made, quick, easy and tasty! Below is the recipe for Chili, a typical ‘South’ dish in
My husband makes it just “emmmmmmmmmmmmmm”….
Below portions serves 4
Spring Onions: 1 bunch, chopped
Tomato: 1 cut in to bite size pieces
Celery: 2 stalks, chopped (optional but very healthy)
Minced turkey/chicken: 1 pound (washed)
Mushrooms: 1 cup
Cooked/canned beans: 2 cans, I used mixed beans (you can use what ever cooked beans you have at home)
Ginger garlic paste: 1 tbsp
Bay leaf: 1
Cinnamon stick: 1 small piece
Salt: 1 tsp or according to taste
Black Pepper: 1 tbsp grounded
Hot sauce: 1 tbsp (I used
Cayenne pepper or red chili powder: 1 tsp (optional, if you want more spice)
Vegetable oil: 2 tbsp
Heat oil in a large pot and add bay leaf and cinnamon stick. Then add spring onions, celery and tomatoes.
Roast the above a bit but not completely. Add ginger garlic paste and cover and cook for 1 minute.
When the turkey turns pink, add water (1 cup), salt, pepper, hot sauce and cayenne pepper/red chili powder (if you are using).
Simmer and let it be on stove for at least 30 minutes. Before you switch off the stove, check the seasoning and adjust.
Chili can be served with pita/Roti/Naan/Rice. I also served boiled fresh corn, seasoned with butter along with Chili and Rice.
