"Chicken in a homemade ground masala. This one's spicy, so be careful, and make it hot to your taste. Wrap this up in pita bread to make a sandwich that's also a main dish meal."

  1. To Make Ground Masala: In a small skillet saute the red chili peppers, coriander, chili powder, poppy seed, cumin, garlic, cardamom and anise. Let cool and transfer to a small bowl, then grind together with the green chile peppers, tamarind, ginger and cilantro to make a smooth paste. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and saute onions until brown. Add ground masala paste and saute for about 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Add chicken pieces, reduce heat to low and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Bring all to a boil, boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat. Garnish with shredded coconut and serve.

It is a little work to make the masala but it is worth it. I added orange juice to it and made it with salmon instead of chicken. Great tangy/spicy taste and flavor!!

This recipe was very time-intensive and expensive, considering the exotic spices and mortar & pestle that I had to buy. Nonetheless, I think it was definitely worth it. The fresh-ground spices resulted in a huge burst of flavor. I served the mixture in parathas (bought frozen from the Indian grocery). It would also be great over rice. Any suggestions as to how to make without the tamarind pulp? I am moving soon and it might be hard to find - it's also kind of annoying because it is only sold in big packages and I don't use it for anything else.

This recipe went over well with my family, it was nice to have a sandwich with a little zip to it.
