I simply cannot think what to name this recipe. I thought possibly, “Indian Spiced Chicken and Cabbage,” but perhaps “Americanized Indian” would be better. If you are in the habit of grinding elaborate masalas and cooking with a variety of spices and curries, this recipe may seem hopelessly oversimplified to you. However, if you are wetting your feet to the world of international cuisine, this Americanized dish is definitely one for your growing file.
Oh, and if your spice cabinet is bare or sadly out-of-date, read on. With a little help from my new friends at Spice Station, one lucky reader will soon be on her way to cooking glory!
Let’s start with the paste (or masala), which, in this case, is made by grinding:
3 whole cloves
1 teaspoon of coriander seeds
1 teaspoon of cumin
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1″ piece of fresh ginger
1 clove of garlic
2 jalapeno peppers (or one for a very mild dish)
To win, simply visit the Spice Station store and have a good look around. Once you’ve picked out something you love (which shouldn’t take long at all – they have teas and spices galore!), simply hop over to my blog and comment with your find.
And that’s it (no hitches or hassles)…I’ll pick the winner via random.org, over at Kingdom Twindom, on May the third.
Good luck…and happy, spicy cooking to you all!
