Chicken in Red Wine


One thing I miss the most is my mom cooked food and specially her chicken dish! It’s not that she would add a lot of flavor or marinate for hours
yet it would be like something you never tasted before. This is not my Mom’s recipe , I don’t even give a try to that. I mean to say why to spoil the fun of waiting for months just to hear that music in your mouth 😉

  • 1 lbs chicken (a combination of legs and breast)
  • 1 medium onion grated

  • In a large bowl combine the chicken with cumin powder, coriander powder, chilly powder, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper.
  • Pour the wine in the bowl and let the chicken marinate for an hour or two.
  • Fry the potatoes in a hot pan with some oil, Do not over fry them !
  • Take the potatoes out and now in the same pan, fry the chicken piece (do not include the manirate water, take one piece at a time and fry it)till it's little brown.
  • In the same pan add the cinnamon and bay leaf , heat it for a while and then add the grated onion, and the pearl onions and fry them for a while. Now add the grated tomatoes and keep stiring them to make sure they don't get burnt.
  • Add the manirate mixture from the bowl and keep frying for 5 to 10 mins .
  • Add the fried chicken in the pan , pour some hot water , lower the heat and let it for another 10 to 15 mins. Make sure the water is reduced to half and the the gravy looks thick
  • Add the chopped cilantro , taste for salt and add if you think it's not enough.
  • Serve hot ... delicious !!
