The most inundating question every morning is what to cook ! Is it that anything will do kinda day ? or should I really get into masterchef mode and prepare something masterchefy or well its a  day for good food and let’s just do that.

I must be the only person , who rejoices when the cook announces that needs 4 days off. Like I have never answered someone in the affirmative that quick. She too gave me a second glance with that äre you gonna replace me “kinda look. The only reason I’m happy is that now I can cook . For hubby! And that’s just what happened. I was like a kid in the candy store when I entered the supermarket.

And after much deliberation and tons of cooking videos later I chanced upon a recipe from Sanjeev Kapoor – Moroccan Chicken. I liked that it had familiar Indian flavours. So I was like “Why not

It’s basically chicken breasts marinated and grilled with the following spice mix

Coriander Seeds
Cumin Seeds
A little Cinamom
Lime Juice
Tumeric Powder
Paprika Powder
Handful of Coriander Leaves
Garam Masala ( this is my little variation for that extra kick)

Grind the above to a paste and marinate the chicken breasts for a minimum of 30 minutes  and grill . I served it with stir fried bell peppers –  It’s a side dish that I rustled up with Bell Peppers , Onions , Ginger , Garlic Powder , Worcestershire sauce , Orange juice and ofcourse salt . Garnished it with coriander ( which by the way happens to be my favorite herb!)

Waiting for the mister’s review.  You guys should give it a go too ! Go on now …

Love , M
