World's easiest Chilli Chicken

This is a family recipe as I herald from a lazy family.

Things you will need to make this: 
  • 250 gm chicken
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Tomato
  • Chilli Sauce
  • Soya Sauce
  • Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Oil
Take a deep container add the chicken, approx. 5-6 ladels of tomato ketchup, 4 tbsp chilli sauce, 2 tbsp. soya sauce, 4 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp salt, 1 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp chilli powder, 1 tsp cumin powder, 1/2 tsp aamchur powder and add 10 crushed cloves of garlic, 1 tbsp salt. Cover and let it marinade overnight.

There is no rush you can make it in the morning or the next night. The longer it marinades the deeper the sauces seep the tastier it is. Alternatively if you are in a hurry you can cook it aft an hour or two; like I did. It still tastes yum.

Now cut 1 big onion into thin slices and fry in 1 tbsp oil in a kadhai.

Once the onions are fried add the entire chicken marinade, cover and sim. 

Once I feel it is almost ready I add whatever vegetables I find in and around the house. I find some leftover spinach some peas, in it goes. Add some greens to the meat and I let it cook for another 10 minutes or so. 

I'm yet to learn how to take better pictures of food, to make it look as appealing as it tastes. That day will come, but today, sadly is not that day. I only hope you don't judge a book by its cover. ;)
