Legendary Chicken 65 from Modern Spice


I couldn't resist making this from Monica Bhide's Modern Spice--love the photos because of the colors or red chile peppers and green curry leaves...Family loved it...but look at the fryer mess I'm left with ....what's up with that? I used good plain yogurt, but I think that is what turned the fryer into a gooey mess...oh, well: worth it. Oh, and we had Monica's Spiced roasted cauliflower with this--enormous hit. More to come, but for now: photos. 

The ingredients were abstract art in a bowl:
 

The finished chicken was beautiful with mustard seeds, red chiles minced fine and green curry leaves.


Of COURSE we had naan--brushed with a bit of butter, just as Monica recommends (I found myself wishing I'd bought a jar of ghee).














Here is the mess. I confess. It is still on my counter (soaking). Oh well...it was worth it.

I love the photo essay you've done - even the pot soaking part which, unfortunately, I relate to the most! But the photos are lovely.

I love the photo essay (the pics are lovely) -- even the photo that referenced the pot soaking as I relate to that experience the most! :)

Yes, I love the photos. The text made me so hungry! I could almost smell the food cooking. (I have to get myself Monica's cookbook!!!)

This looks gorgeous. I gave Monica's cookbook to my mom for Christmas. I don't have one myself and am generally not a fan of spicy foods.

That chicken looks yummy, but I've never tried Indian food. I need to add that to my to-do list.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Sound Check Mama. We're a softball and soccer family here ... and dance, too! :-)

That really looks delish! Curious: What is naan?

Naan is a leavened flat bread. I buy it frozen--and love the garlic naan. Just last week I also found a big package of plain naan at Costco, not frozen...and VERY good.

Here's a recipe, although as I said, I have always bought it:

I'm sure it was worth it, Barb! It looks delicious!
