If you are planning a Chinese dinner party,you are at the right place.I have here an interesting printable Chinese menu along with recipes you could use.
I know I am posting two Chinese dishes back to back (my last post was Chinese style potato) but the reason is,that I was planning a Chinese dinner meal combo.
Actually my sister-in-law who lives in the beautiful city of Roswell,Georgia suggested I post 5 course party menus from different cuisines with proper links to the recipes. It can be helpful, according to her, if someone is planning a theme party. It could save them some precious time. Here, I have to add that my sweet sis-in-law has been with me throughout my blogging journey,right from the start, giving me interesting suggestions and ideas.
When I looked up my Recipe Index, I discovered I had enough Chinese recipes to plan a complete dinner party (except the soup, which got accidentally deleted). So, I am starting with the Chinese dinner Party menu. Please find it after the Ginger Chicken recipe and do let me know how you like the idea.
This post is dedicated to you Sis ❤
Ginger chicken is one delicious dish which you find by default on the Chinese menu. Everyone has their own way of making it. This is how me and my family make it. It has lovely flavors in it and can be served with Chinese fried rice, noodles or even flat breads.
- 1 Chicken (pieces)
- salt to taste
- 1 tbsp. ginger garlic paste
- 2 tbsp. vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. red chili powder
- 1 tbsp. soy sauce
Marinate the chicken with all these ingredients and keep in fridge for at least an hour.
Second set of Ingredients:
- 6-7 medium sized onions sliced fine and deep fried crisp
- 4-5 medium sized tomatoes
- 10 dry red chilies
Put all these in a food processor and grind them into a smooth paste. Add some water if necessary.
Third set of ingredients:
- 1 tbsp. finely chopped ginger pieces
- 2 finely chopped green chilies
- 8-10 curry leaves
- 2-4 tbsp. oil
In a wok, heat oil and saute these ingredients one by one. Add the marinated chicken and saute well on high heat, stirring all the while. Add the onion and tomato paste and saute again till oil separates.Add 2 cups of water.Cover lid and cook till chicken is cooked.
