Chicken cafreal is a Goan recipe. This dish is greenish brown in color.Here I have not followed the exact recipe,innovated to get more taste.Please try out and comment.
Chicken -1 full chicken cut into medium sized pieces.
Onion- 2big cut into rings
Salt and sugar.
Oil- 1 tbsp for grilling
Garlic-ginger paste-1 tbsp
Tamarind paste-or Vinegar-2 tbsp
Green Chillies-4 no
Pepper corns- 1 tbsp
Coriander powder- 1 tbsp (Optional-not in the original recipe)
Garam Masala-1 -2 tsp
1. Make a cafreal marinade and marinate the chicken for 4 hours.
for the marinade
Grind all the ingredients under marinade.
This will give you a green color paste.Use chicken stock if needed.Coat the chicken with marinade and salt.Keep refrigerated for 4 hours.
In the original recipe,they cook the chicken by pouring hot oil on to it,periodically.But I used just 1 tbsp oil in a grill pan.First add chicken to the oil .After 5 minutes add onion rings and turn the pieces.
Cook it well after closing with the lid.Turn the chicken ,at intervals,also add more onion to it.
Let it cook until it turns to greenish black in color.
Add french fries into this if you prefer,and mix well.Serve with Bread or rice.
