It has been a while since I've posted a recipe! I have been buried in a bunch of things but here I am with a new chicken recipe and pitted prune. I just wanted to make a delicious comeback!!
chicken 1 kg
pitted prunes 400 gr
Saffron 1/2 teaspoon
turmeric 1/2 teaspoon
oil of your own choice 2 table spoons
fresh lime or lemon juice 2 table spoon
lemon zest 1 teaspoon ( you can use orange zest or orange peels)
water 2 glasses
salt and pepper to taste
wash and soak dried pitted prunes for about an hour, peel and slice onions fry in one table spoon oil until golden and soft. Add chicken and stir-fry it until chicken color changes, add lemon zest or peels, turmeric and a pinch of salt and black pepper, they give such a lovely flavor to your food, add enough water and cook over the medium heat for about 15 minutes, meanwhile cut carrots lengthwise into 2 inches length and add them into a frying pan with a table spoon of oil and a table spoon of water and cook for about 5 minutes or until its juice/water is gone , I think this way is better than frying carrots and set it aside, after 15 minutes, add prunes and fresh lemon juice into chicken , let it simmer for 10 minutes, bring a cup of water into a boil,steep saffron in a boiling water and cover the cup for 2 minutes, then add saffron water into the food, , finally add carrots and let it simmer for another 5 minutes, after that our Khoresh is ready to be served with rice . Nooshe Jaan!
