Chicken Paprik/Ayam Paprik Recipe @
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A combination of chicken and vegetables stir fried  in spicy sauce. .

I used to buy this Chicken Paprik when I lived in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur few years ago.   Am craving to eat my favorite chicken dish now..

As always a store bought has very small portion and very little veggies.  It is so satisfying to cook Chicken Paprik in your own kitchen with your choice of vegetables and sauces.

You may include long bean as well but I don't like it so  exclude  them from my recipe.  Reduce  the water if you prefer a fairly dry ones.

It  is entirely up to you to increase or decrease the amount of sauces added including the chili paste and bird's eye chili.

Lemon Chicken Recipe @

A semi dry dish of chicken fillet drenched in a sweet and sour sauce.

If you are looking for a quick and tasty meal that had a wonderful flavor, this Lemon Chicken is the right choice.

I used boneless chicken cut into strips.  Then coat the cleaned chicken with turmeric and salt.  Fry them until half done.  You can avoid frying them by adding the chicken straight to the wok after  the onion turns translucent.

Adjust the amount of  fresh red, green and bird's eye chili according to your preference.  The Lemon Chicken was fairly a dry dish but  add more water if you want more gravy.

Did you notice that most of the ingredients require slicing.  But to make it time saving, you could consider blending  onion, ginger, garlic and all the chili into  a coarse paste.

Coriander Chicken Recipe @

Coriander Chicken is one of the tastiest and most unusual  dishes I have ever tried.  This recipe combined both the coriander seeds and coriander  leaves for an amazing blend of flavor.

The only down side is that once you start cooking, you're pretty much tied to the stove. It requires a lot of stirring, checking and adding things and so on.  Still don't let it put you off, it is absolutely fabulous. Seriously it has to be tried!

Hot & Spicy Chicken Masala is my family favorite dish.  Whenever I cooked a special rice, this dish was most requested.  Hot & Spicy  Chicken Masala was little spicy since I have used bird's eye chili in it but this is optional, you may omit if you can't stand the heat but trust me this tiny chili adds  a special punch to the dish.

Looks complicated  but actually it was easy to prepare. What you need is a blender/food processor to process the ingredients until smooth but I prefer to use my pestle and mortar to do the job.

Make sure to remove the skin and trim the excess fat from the chicken.  If possible, blend the spices without water since the juice from  tomato will aid the process. Hope you'll enjoy this dish as much as we do!

Servings   :    5-6

500 gram chicken parts cleaned
10 shallot peeled
2 tomato sliced
2 tablespoon chicken curry powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
10 red bird's eye chili
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 in cinnamon stick
2  cloves
2 cardamoms
3 cloves garlic peeled
1 cm ginger peeled
2 limes squeezed for juice
salt to taste
3 tablespoon oil


Marinate cleaned chicken with turmeric, salt and 1 tsp chili powder (taken from 1 tablespoon) for at least 30 minutes.

Blend onion, ginger, garlic, tomato  and bird's eye chili in a blender/food processor until it becomes smooth paste.

Heat oil in a deep pot, add in blended ingredients and salt, fry  until fragrant.

Add in cinnamon. cloves, cardamom, chicken curry powder and chili powder continue cooking using slow heat until oil floats on top.

Put in chicken pieces and cook until chicken is tender using medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Check for salt,  add the lime juice. Once the chicken is fully cooked, it is ready to be served.

It is popular during festive occasions or wedding in South East Asian countries.  To avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan, stir constantly and make use of your  non stick utensil if you have.

Naan is a favorite of my son and he prefers to eat them with chicken dish. Since I had a bowl of yogurt, so this is an appropriate gravy to cook with.

Perfect blend of spices, makes this dish scrumptious and creamy.  Had used ready made korma powder if not you can use a mixture of ground coriander and ground cumin. We need more gravy to dip so added a little bit of water at the time of cooking but this is not necessary if you prefer thicker one.

Any time of the day, fried chicken sounds great and appetizing snack for chicken lovers especially the aroma at the time you're frying them. It is a great appetizer or side dish to serve along with main course. It is quite easy to prepare, just require time for marinating, the longer time it takes will make them more tastier.

Using dry chili but chili powder works well too, adjust to suit your taste. If you're using wet blender, kindly add some water to grind. In case the lemon grass is not available at your place, do omit them, this is for fragrance only.

This is my favorite recipe, do you believe that one of my sons can complete them in one sitting. What you need are:


12 pieces chicken drumstick/breast
salt to taste
oil for shallow frying


1 in ginger
4 cloves garlic
2 stalk lemon grass
15 dry chili - soak to soften
1 tsp turmeric powder


* Place cleaned chicken, ground ingredients and salt in a bowl. Mix well.

* Marinate for at least 1 hour in a refrigerator.

* Heat the oil, shallow fry the marinated chicken until both sides turn golden brown. Transfer onto plate lined with kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.

* Serve hot.

I have came across thousand cooking websites featuring all sort of chicken recipes be it Chinese, Indian or Malaysian. It is really hard to choose which one suits my taste bud. In the end my choice goes to Mysore fried chicken by Zarinah Anwar. I had tried several recipes by her and it never failed to impress the taster.

This recipe does not used ginger, garlic, cinnamon, clove or cardamom at all instead chopped coriander leaves is added for cooking this dish. Surprisingly it turns out fantastic and added more water for extra gravy since it supposes to be fairly dry curry.


1.5 kg chicken pieces, remove skin
2 onions sliced
2 green chillies sliced
1 red chili
2 T coriander powder
1 T chili powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
10 stalks coriander leaves chopped
2 C water
8 T oil
salt to taste


* Combine chicken with all the ingredients except oil and 1 cup water in a big bowl.

* Heat oil, add chicken, fry till fragrant. Add 1 cup water, cover and cook until chicken is dry and tender using low heat, stir in between.

* Garnish with coriander leaves at the time of serving.

One of the easiest dish you can prepare and tastes great too. As you know, black pepper is known for its health benefits, improve digestion, promote intestinal health,antioxidant and antibacterial effects. It contains vitamin K, iron, dietary fiber and manganese.

This is not the typical Black Pepper Chicken that uses soy and oyster sauce, the addition of freshly ground black pepper really enhances the taste of this chicken.

Best taken with bread, roti or even rice.

This is the gravy I have cooked to go along with the tomato rice posted earlier. It's semi dry dish, a bit spicy and tasted wonderful with the rice. Kindly adjust the spice level to your liking.

If you are using the concentrated tomato puree, do adjust the quantity since it is more tangy than the liquid tomato puree I have used here.
