Easy Chilli Chicken

This is an Indo – Chinese recipe that I often make at home. It is my daughter’s favourite chicken dish. No frying is required in its preparation. But it is very tasty!
Chicken -1 kg
Onion -1 large, chopped
Green chillies -5 slit
Ginger – garlic paste -2 tsp
Chilli powder -1 tsp
Turmeric powder -1\4 tsp
Vinegar -3 tsp
Water -1 cup
Salt -to taste
Orange red color -1\8 tsp
Soya sauce -2 tbsp
Sugar -1\2 tsp
Oil -2 tbsp
Coriander leaves -1 tbsp chopped
Wash and cut the chicken into small pieces. Mix it with turmeric powder, chilli powder, vineger, orange red color and salt. Keep aside for half an hour. Transfer the chicken to a pan, pour 1 cup of water and cook covered till done. Open the lid and evaporate excess water. Heat oil in a non stick pan and add ginger- garlic paste. Fry for a few seconds on low flame. Add onions and green chillies. Fry till the onions turn pink. Add soya sauce and sugar. Stir and add the cooked chicken pieces. Fry for 5 minutes and put off the fire. Garnish with coriander leaves. Goes well with rice, chapathis, pulao, fried rice or noodles.
