Chicken Thoran and a Fashion Show :)

 

We had our Kerala association’s (KAW) onam celebration on 18th and I (Maya) had participated in a fashion show. These are the videos of the show and the slide show of the event & off-stage pictures that my hubby took. I am the 6th one at 5 minutes 20 sec (wearing the black costume and a silver band on forehead) in the Western, Lady Gaga song. Hope you enjoy them :).

Ingredients

 

  1. Chicken – 350 gm
  2. Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
  3. Red onion – 1 large, thinly sliced and chopped (Using pearl onions will be more tasty. You can use around 15 pearl onions)
  4. Green chillies – 6 -7, chopped fine
  5. Ginger – 1.5 tbsp, chopped fine
  6. Garlic – 1 tbsp, chopped fine
  7. Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
  8. Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  9. Chilly powder – 1 tsp
  10. Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
  11. Cumin powder – 1 pinch
  12. Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp
  13. Garam masala – 1/4 tsp (Optional)
  14. Mustards – 1/2 tsp
  15. Coconut oil – 1 tbsp
  16. Salt – To taste

Method

1. Clean and cut the chicken to small pieces.

 

2. Heat 1 tsp coconut oil in a pan and cook the chicken in enough salt until they are done stirring occasionally. It will take around 15 mts. There is no need to add water since water will ooze out from the chicken. Shred the chicken pieces with your hands when they cool down.
