First, you need to have all these powders that I have mentioned. Basically it reduces the time & effort chopping tomatoes/ginger/garlic etc. Unfortunately I didnt find `Onion powder` yet.. but those folks who can get them somewhere can replace it with the chopped Onions.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker.
Fry the chopped onions until golden brown.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir along with chicken.
Pour 1/2 glass of water and let the pressure cooker whistle 2-3 times.
:- If you feel too hungry carefully take the pressure cooker into the kitchen sink and pour cold water on top to reduce the pressure inside and gain quick access to BACHELORS-Chicken!
Hi,gud one.u vll get fried onions in all indian and pakistani stores in US.Its a real time saver.i always use that foe biriyani.thnx
Waw Good one and really time saving
A quick recipe and it came out well!! Thnx mate...
Hey it worked out well. Thanks Buddy!!!!
Heath conscious folks can add a few beans chopped into 1.5 cm pieces, it goes with this recipe. Looks a bit Chinese but it has got the very naadan taste.
It has been a while since I logged back into my good old recipe and REALLY surprised to see so many good comments. wow! Thank you all. As advised by all our readers, it would be better to spend some time cutting fresh Onions than the Onion powder. I know it may make you cry but it is worth the effort folks!
Thanks a lot good recipe.Could you please post some quick and easy recipes for working mothers.
Thanks a lot.
Excellent idea.I never tried with ginger powder and garlic powder.I always used ginger-garlic paste.Let me try this .And also a very good tip to a quick access to the pressure cooker by releasing its pressure by running under cool water.
