Ria's Collection: SAUCY CHICKEN a.k.a SUSY CHICKEN!

Wednesday, April 14, 2010


Here it is as promised, the recipe for Saucy Chicken. This one comes straight from my mother's recipe collection.A curry which has been requested to be made over and over again because it tastes SO good! Eventually, this curry is now known as Susy Chicken (my daddy dearest is responsible for this!). Oh! For all those who are wondering who Susy is, well she is my superwoman celebrity Amma! :)

If there is a house where no curry should be re-heated because the father and son thinks a LOT of water is being added into the curry during the re-heating process [re-heating on a stovetop] or every curry needs to be freshly made or all 3 meals should have different stuff, it is mine! :)

Gradually my mother has learnt all the tricks that needs to fool such a husband and son and the daughter is planning to follow it dutifully! ;) Talk about 'like mother like daughter!' :D The first day it would be chicken roast, the next day it would be chicken curry...all with the addition of coconut milk etc! :)

But, this curry is not like that :D It was freshly made by the still-freshly-married young woman for her ever-loving husband! Ahem! Yes, love is very much in the air! ;)


Chicken -1 kg, cut & cleaned
Soya sauce - 1 tbsp + 2tbsp
Tomato ketchup/sauce- 2 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste-2 tbsp
Onions- 2,large cut into squares
Carrot- 1, medium cut into squares [I don't like to see chunks of carrot ,so I cut into thin rounds]
Salt-to taste
Water /chicken stock- 1 cup
Cornflour- 1 tbsp diluted in 1/2 cup water
Pepper to taste.
Spring onion-1 sprig, chopped

  • Marinate the chicken pieces with salt, pepper and 1tbsp soya sauce for 15 mins or till you get the other ingredients ready :)
  • Slightly fry the chicken pieces in 4-5 tbsp of oil and keep aside. Reuse the oil for the curry cooking.
  • Heat oil, add the ginger-garlic paste and saute it till the 'most fave aroma of mine' seems to be flooding your kitchen.
  • Add the onions and carrot and saute it for 3 mins.
  • Reduce the flame to low, add the sauces and give it a good mix.
  • Add the fried chicken pieces and also a cup of water. Let it boil.
  • Add the diluted cornflour into it and let it thicken.
  • Garnish with spring onions and serve hot with Chicken Fried Rice.
