I came across a recipe for Cauliflower Manchurian and the base was using ketchup… I thought I could adapt it for chicken as well! This is such a basic condiment thats in every house!
1 pound boneless chicken breasts, 1 1/2 “cubed
about 1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoon oil ( divided )
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 ” piece of ginger, grated
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper ( more if needed)
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup tomato ketchup ( preferably low sodium and less sugar)
Coat the chicken cubes with flour.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wok or frying pan. Add the chicken cubes and stir fry till the chicken is nearly cooked. about 4-5 minutes.
Remove and set aside.
Add another tablespoon oil in the wok, stir in the garlic and ginger. Stir for 30 seconds and add the remaining spices. Sauté till blended.
Add the ketchup. Cook for a few minutes till the mixture is thick and bubbly.
Add the chicken cubes into the sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes.
