{Indian Curry/Cooking} INSPIRED GREEN CHUTNEY CHICKEN… and a CSN Giveaway!

“The smell and taste of things remain poised a long time, like souls, ready to remind us….”
Marcel Proust

I ran a fun giveaway for CSN Stores a short while ago and on offer was a Delonghi Grill or a CuisineArt Ice Cream Maker. The other day Jess from the CSN Promo Team wrote in to say they selected me as a CSN Preferred Blogger. What that meant was another chance to either review a product or give one away to readers of Passionate About Baking from their store Just Vanities or any of their other 200+online stores. I chose to host the giveaway, and you choose how you would like to spend the gift certificate.

On offer is a one-time-use $80 gift certificate for one lucky winner to use as they wish on any of the CSN websites.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what you would pick from any of the CSN Stores if you win the $80 gift certificate. Tweet about this giveaway for an extra entry leaving a comment for each entry. Comments close on Sunday June 27th, and I will pick a winner thereafter.
The giveaway is only open to residents of the US and Canada for shipping reasons. {Yes, US / Canada addresses work} Please leave a contact in your comment or email it to me if you wish to be included in the giveaway.

Whether bathroom vanity is what you are looking for, or stuff for the kitchen, CSN has one of the best selections on the web! With over 40,000 products to choose from that store or stores such as All Modern or Cookware, you can spend all day looking for the perfect product.

While on the topic of food blogging and the charming benefits of being a food blogger, I was happy to receive a copy of Monica Bhide’s Modern Spice, a new version of the book for the Indian subcontinent, a short while before we left for our vacation. I’ve reviewed the US version of Modern Spice: Inspired Indian Flavors for the Contemporary Kitchen here. The nice folk from Random House offered me a sneak peek into Modern Spices new recipes, and then mailed me a copy which for some reason never did reach me. They arranged for another one, and I was happy to leaf through the pages a few days later!
I loved the look of the book. The cover is colourful, vibrant, ‘spicy’ and screams to the reader to pick up the book. It’s a beautiful shot of spices and reflects everything India is all about. It reminded me of the canvas of colours and character we encountered on our recent vacation. Here are a ‘few’ pictures that I took on a day trip up into the Himalayas. The colours of India, the people, the beauty … all take your breath away. On this particular instance, we were a group of 24 folk who trekked up a steep 3 hours to a monastery perched on top of a hill . Each muscle screamed in agony, but the climb was all worth it.

Tibetan monasteries are usually located at the very top of a hill, away from civilization and amidst beautiful peaceful surroundings. They are self sufficient in nature. This particular monastery had hostel like rooms for the young, and was surrounded by independent ramshackle cottages for the very elderly.

Everyone and everything exists here is harmony. You can feel and literally ‘hear‘ the gentle breeze embrace you amidst the soothing sounds of prayer bells and Buddhist chants. The setting is as rustic and removed from the real world as can be. Each monastery has its own distinctive character and style and ambiance that surrounds it. The architecture too is exclusive to each. I have pictures of four to five different monasteries .. wish I could share it all here!

Back to Modern Spice … The book itself is divided into handy, colour coded sections and what I liked especially were the thoughtful pages for notes included at the end of each section. Neat idea! The only downside of the book, IMHO, is the lack of pictures. Maybe it’s just a personal thing, but I do like to see a picture of how a dish would look, or have a general idea of what to expect. Otherwise, I like some of the ideas Monica offers that break away from traditional Indian flavour combinations, tempting the cook to step out of his / her comfort zone. Another intriguing aspect is the inclusion of recipes like fennel and chilli-crusted tilapia and basmati rice with pine nuts and mint, accompanied by a guava bellini... global influences that make you want to think out of the box!

The day the book arrived, I was en route to making a chicken curry, and had just marinated thigh tenders in lime juice, salt and paprika. Leafing through Monica’s book made me add a few bits and bobs to the ‘recipe in progress‘, and it was a bit like my Indian Summer Chicken Curry I posted last summer. The recipe I’ve posted today is inspired by the Green Chutney Chicken in Modern Spice. It was a wonderful, light, flavourful and lovely curry for the summer, and so quick to make! I served it with dried mint lachchedar/multi-layered parathas! The meal disappeared very fast!!

Green Chutney Chicken
Inspired by recipe on Modern Spice, page 137
750gms chicken thigh tenders, cut into bite sized pieces
1 tbsp garlic paste
1 tsp ginger paste
2-3 green chillies, as per taste
juice of 2 limes
Salt to taste
1 bunch fresh coriander
1/2 bunch fresh mint
1/2 small red onion
1/4 thick hung yogurt

Wash and pat chicken tenders dry.

Make a paste of the ginger, garlic and green chillies with juice of 2 limes and salt. Marinade tenders in this for 4-6 hours/overnight
Heat oil in a wok. Add the marinated tenders and cook on high heat until lightly browned, stirring on and off.
In the meantime, grind the fresh coriander, fresh mint and onion to a paste with 1 tbsp of yogurt. Stir this into the thickened hung yogurt.
Add the hung yogurt mixture to the chicken in the wok, stir well, add 1/4 cup water and bring to a gentle boil. Simmer covered for 15-20 minutes. Adjust seasoning, and add a slit green chili if desired. Garnish with fresh coriander and mint leaves.
Serve hot with naans, parathas or boiled rice.

The following two tabs change content below.
About me: I am a freelance food writer, recipe developer and photographer. Food is my passion - baking, cooking, developing recipes, making recipes healthier, using fresh seasonal produce and local products, keeping a check on my carbon footprint and being a responsible foodie! I enjoy food styling, food photography, recipe development and product reviews. I express this through my food photographs which I style and the recipes I blog. My strength lies in 'Doing Food From Scratch'; it must taste as good as it looks, and be healthy too. Baking in India, often my biggest challenge is the non-availability of baking ingredients, and this has now become a platform to get creative on. I enjoy cooking immensely as well.

    I enjoyed reading your interesting post very much, but mostly appreciated you letting us in on your personal thoughts on this recipe book. As much as I can enjoy great recipes that are included in a book…I refuse to purchase books with limited visuals.
    Photos are what inspires us to pick a recipe in the first place.
    Those that decide to publish books like these should never cheat us of this pleasure!
    Thanks again for sharing and flavourful wishes, Claudia
