Pui cu frunze de curry

In una din vizitele mele prin magazinul meu de suflet, am gasit frunze de curry uscate. Au fost destul de ieftine. Cam 3 lei o punguta ce poate fi folosita de multe ori. Asa a aparut aceasta reteta de pui cu frunze de curry 

Poate va intrebati ce sunt frunzele astea si cu ce se mananca ele?  Copacul Curry provine din India si poate atinge o inaltime de 5 metri. Frunzele seamana oarecum cu cele de dafin, dar sunt mai subtiri si au alta aroma.  Arata cam asa

 
 
 
Poza de mai sus am luat-o de pe net si nu avea semnatura.
 
Au o aroma destul de pregnanata, de aceea nu se folosesc in cantitati mari.
 
Ingrediente pentru 3 persoane
  • 1 piept de pui, taiat bucatele mici
  • 5 linguri ulei de porumb
  • 1 lingurita Garam Masala
  • 2 lingurite turmeric
  • 7 frunze uscate de curry
  • 3 catei de usturoi, rasi mic
  • 3 cm ghimbir, ras mic
  • 1 ceapa mare, tocata marunt
  • 500 ml apa
  • sare, piper dupa gust
  • 300 g orez basmati

 

Mod de pregatire

1. Inainte de a incepe gatitul, pregateste tot ce ai nevoie taiat, la indemana.
2. Incalzeste o tigaie mare si pune uleiul in ea.
3. Adauga ghimbirul si usturoiul in uleiul incins si amesteca putin. Pune Garam Msala si amesteca sa se omogenizeze.
4.Adauga ceapa si caleste-o la foc mediu pana devine translucida. Adauga frunzele de curry si caleste-le putin.
5. Adauga carnea si turmericul. Amesteca bine.
6. Pune apa si acopera cu un capac. Lasa pana ce carnea e aproape facuta.
7. Pune orezul si mai adauga putina apa daca e nevoie. Asezoneaza cu sare si piper. Lasa mancarea sub capac pana ce orezul e moale.

    Magic of Spice, Thanks for your nice comment. I think that you should cancel the translation in Romanian, because is totally wrong :)) It means that the satellite antenna is looking nice :))))

    I made my own Garam Masala for the first time for a shrimp/ coconut dish just recently. It was delicious. Do you make your own?

    Mersic, Elena. Am cautat pe net retete cu frunze de curry si erau cam complicate. Asa ca pe asta am conceput-o eu, cu ce am gasit in frigider.

    Excelent, Brandusa! Si eu am gasit frunze din acestea uscate si le-am folosit. Dau un gust mai delicat si in combinatia facuta de tine trebuie sa fie grozav. Si asa eram in pana de idei, ca alternativa la salate, asa ca iti multumesc. Eu nu o sa pun si orezul, pentru ca nu am voie combinatia, dar stiu ca trebuie sa fie excelenta. O saptamana frumoasa in continuare!
