The Different seasons of the Midwest

          It was the weekend with bright sunny skies outside. Birds were chirping outdoors, summer fast approaching. A relaxed pace in the air, a sense of contentment the warm weather usually brings.It felt good to step out and enjoy the weather. The joy of living in the midwest and enjoying the different seasons is a treat one gives oneself.

Weekend chores

My mind races to the “To- Do- List” for the weekend.Yet food comes first in the list. What do I cook today ? Weekends are for experimenting with food, trying out new recipes, blending flavors to create new tasty dishes.

The avocados, I bought last week were sitting on the kitchen counter. Suddenly a thought emerged to use them in a dish with chicken, creating a creamy texture.Does it always have to be butter chicken ?

What’s cooking today ?

Summer time is for summer bodies, I told myself .Finding healthy options is not a must but a necessity! What if I substitute butter and replace avocado’s instead and create an Avocado Chicken curry recipe instead ?

  • Next add the turmeric powder, chili powder & stir for a few minutes, before adding the cleaned and cut chicken pieces into it.
  • Stir for a few minutes without adding any water allowing the chicken to cook in its own steam.
  • Next, add the ginger garlic paste & stir it into the mix, till the raw smell disappears. Add salt to taste.
  • Let the sauce cook in its own steam, now add the blended thick paste of avocados into it, which gives the gravy a creamy texture. Cook covered with lid for another 5 minutes until the raw smell disappears & you smell the subtle aroma of avocados blending with Indian spices.
