Sweet And Sour Chicken






Spice up your senses with this colourful Asian style dish! I was in the mood to cook some Chinese last night and so I browsed through a couple of recipes online and I found this one which is a famous Pakistani Chef's dish. It came out really well! I did a lil bit of variations in it and thought it gave more flavours to it. Enjoy :)

Ingredients:
Chicken ½ kg - boneless cut into bite size pcs
Black pepper - ¼ tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Pure White vinegar - 1 tbsp
Egg - 1 beaten

Corn flour - 2 tbsp
Oil for frying
Salt to taste

For Sauce:
Oil - 2 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Green chili - 2 chopped
Spring onion - 1 chopped
Chicken stock - 1 cup
Pure White vinegar - 3 tbsp
Soya sauce - 1 tbsp
Sweet Chilli Sauce - 1 tbsp
Hot chilli sauce - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Tomato ketchup - 3 tbsp
Corn flour - 1 tbsp mixed with little water
Green pepper - sliced and sautéed in oil
Onions - thinly sliced and sautéed in oil
Salt to taste

Method:
Cut chicken into bite size pieces and marinate with salt, black pepper, ginger garlic paste, white vinegar, egg, flour and corn flour for about half an hour in the refrigerator. After marination, deep fry in oil until golden brown in color. Remove from pan and keep aside.

To prepare the sauce; in a pan heat oil, add ginger garlic paste and green chillies. Stir fry for 2 minutes. Now add spring onions, chicken stock, white vinegar, soya sauce, sweet chilli sauce, hot chilli sauce, salt, sugar and tomato ketchup.

Cook till it comes to a boil. Lower the heat. Thicken sauce with corn flour paste. Now add the fried chicken and mix well. Finally add the sautéed Onions and Green Pepper and cook for another 2 mins.

Serve the chicken hot on a bed of steamed plain white rice!

To make it more sweet you can try other variations by adding pineapples or carrots to it.
