Chicken Cafreal

Chicken Cafreal is a Goan chicken dish. I find it very easy to cook and has almost always turned out good. Here is the recipe I follow

Chicken Cafreal

1. Dry roast 1 tsp coriander seeds,  1 tsp cumin seeds,5-6 cloves,2  green cardamoms, 5-6 black peppercorns and 1 inch cinnamon till the spices are slightly brown

2. Add 1 inch ginger, 4-5 cloves of garlic, 2 green chillies, ,and half onion roughly chopped. I also added 5-6 stalks of coriander leaves and sauteed all these till they are slightly cooked. 

3. Now grind all this  to a fine paste using a little water and salt. Make deep incisions in the 500 gm chicken and add all this fine paste and refrigerate for two to three hours (no need to freeze).

4. Heat three tablespoons of oil in a pan, add the marinated chicken and cook covered on medium heat stirring occasionally. Add a little warm water if required to avoid scorching. 
5. Cook for 15 mins. When almost done add vinegar/lime juice according to taste and cook for two to three minutes. Serve hot as a side dish.
