Wow, people..!! Have a look at this recipe.. That too on TNT Magazine(The North-East Today)…I was really happy and excited to see this… However, when I actually went through it, it just looked so familiar… Well, you might have guessed it… It was copied word to word from my very own blog… https://tensanz2012.wordpress.com/2012/11/24/wak-jo-krapa/… I wish they had mentioned this link somewhere in their recipe page 😦 … anyways, I am happy that this blog is getting noticed and that my page is the first link when you search for ‘Garo Recipes’ on Google :D…something to cheer about…
Ah! Finally, I have added this recipe… I had been waiting to try this out… It was yum, I tell you… 🙂 all my friends enjoyed… And obviously, I, the cook, was overjoyed over such a reaction… Lol…
Have a look at the recipe below… I hope I haven’t missed out any steps in the Methods section… Lemme know if I have… Hehe…
Chicken 100 gms
Fresh green chillies – According to taste (I gave 2 of them)
Cooking soda (Kalchi)-1/3 teaspoon
Ginger- About 1 teaspoon crushed
Water- According to personal choice( Half cup to 1 cup)
Gather all ingredients in a cooking pan except the water.
Add about 1/3rd cup of water. The water has to be added little by little.
Bring to boil in medium flame.
Do not cover the pan at this time.
Because of the cooking soda, foam will form and it will look as if about to spill.Whenever that happens, just lower the flame.
Boil for 5 minutes, then cover and cook on low flame for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Whenever, the water dries up, add a little more. Personally, I don’t like a watery gravy and I like to keep it a little dry. So, I don’t add too much water.
Cook till the chicken becomes soft and tender and till the water reduces to half.
This dish is one of those that is considered quite a delicacy in any Garo household.The ingredients are readily available in the local markets and any Garo will vouch for the amazing taste that this dish provides to the palate :). I have been brought up with such dishes in my house. And, I really enjoy having it. Hope you do, too.
Dry Fish – 250 grams
Salt – To taste
Fresh green Chillies – About 5-6(or according to taste) slit from the middle
Ginger – 3 Tablespoons crushed
Edible Soda – 1/3 teaspoon
Water – 1 1/2 cup
Remove the heads of the Dry Fish.
Then, gather all ingredients in a pan.
Boil it on medium flame till some foam is formed.
Lower the flame, half cover the pan and keep boiling on sim for about 15 minutes or so, till the dry fish has been completely cooked.
