Mouthwatering Tamarind Chicken

Tamarind Chicken

Just looking at this photograph evokes mouthwatering memories and 
I enjoy gloating over my culinary accomplishments.  This is a simple , easy recipe  to be savoured from start to finish.  The main ingredient is tamarind which I used to love eating as a child.  Combine it with chicken and you have a very unusual, startling dish- looks good, smells good and tastes good.  Get ready to attack and satisfy your taste buds.

The Recipe:

1 small chicken, remove skin, joint, wash and drain.; 2 tbsp thick tamarind paste without seeds; 3 tbsp corriander powder; 1 tsp brown sugar; salt to taste; 1 tsp pepper corns, crush roughly; 3 spring onions, minced fine.

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and marinade overnight.  Next day, transfer to pan and cover and cook for 15 minutes on a medium flame until the sauce is thick and  reduced.  Heat 2 dsp oil in a nonstick pan and fry the the chicken for a couple of minutes.  Garnish with spring onions and serve hot with rice.  Tastes wonderful.
