We usually get the frozen chicken, which I do not prefer as I feel like I do not get the essence of chicken in the curry. So though it’s a bit far away from our place, we went to the Halal market and got fresh chicken. But one whole chicken (around 1.5 kg) would serve 2 of us a minimum of 5 to 6 meals. So I decided to try out varieties for each meal. It was a Saturday. I got the recipe for Chilly Chicken from my mother in the morning and then prepared the list of ingredients that I need to buy. As usual after long hours of planning, we went out by 7 pm. Reached Walmart and searched the whole center for Green chilly Sauce, but in vain.L
That’s available only in Indian/Chinese Store. They close out by 8 pm and we were already lateL
But we were ready with our fried rice and the chilly chicken was half done. We once again went around the Asian-Hispanic food bay and gladly found an alternative there – Red chilly sauce with garlic.J J So I made some alterations in my mom’s recipe and prepared the dish, though later I could find a video in YouTube, where a chef uses Red chilly sauce for chilly chicken.
