Hyderabad is experiencing a temperature drop to below 20 C. Looks like #WinterinHere and I seem to not get out of my running nose. I had to find a ‘totka’ (solution) to get better and sooner. Brandy was my only hope!!
While my last visit in United States of America, I have experienced Katsu Curry in a Japanese Restaurant. Though, it is impossible to make it here in India, I thought to make something inspired by it.
Here is the quick & easy recipe for you to try over this weekend.
Crisy Chicken in Cheese Brandy Sauce
Crunchy fried chicken breasts topped with French Brandy sauce
- 400 gms boneless chicken breast
- 50 ml coconut oil
- 25 gms cooking butter
- 25 gms fresh cream
- 2 cheese cubes
- 20 gms Isabgol husk
- 3 tbsp ground black pepper
- 100 ml brandy
- 100 ml water
- 2 tbsp mixed herbs
- Salt to taste
- Rub the chicken breasts with salt & pepper and keep it aside for 10 mins.
- In a flat base pan, heat the butter and oil together.
- Coat the chicken with Isabgol Husk and fry them in medium flame. Keep rotating every 5 mins.
- Once the chicken is cooked from both sides and you have light brown texture, take it out from the pan and keep it aside.
- In a round bottom pan, boil 3 cups of water with a pinch of salt. Add the cheese cubes to let it melt by constantly stirring.
- When the water is reduced to almost half add the brandy and let it boil is high flame until you get the consistency.
- Add the fresh cream & the mixed herbs to the sauce and stir it well to mix properly.
- Pour the sauce of the fried chicken and sprinkle with some fresh parsley/coriander. Serve it with pita bread.
A perfect meal on a laid back weekend. If you try the recipe, don’t forget to post it on your social media channels and please tag #bongfoooodie as I would love to be part of your experience in the kitchen.
