I am officially in the final stretch of college part 1, I see lots of studying and memorizing in my future. I think I am slightly crazy but I am looking into getting a second bachelor’s degree. However this time, I am going to meet with a career counselor before jumping into something I am not 100% sure about.
Anyways, yesterday I got to have some delicious Indian food that was not made by me or my mom! Or takeout…
One of the lovely people at the office I work at brought in a spread of jasmine rice, channa masala, aloo & palak and gobi & peas.
I helped myself. I love that I work at the same place with people who believe that sharing is caring.
Oh and food is the way to my heart.
Pan Fried Chicken with Tandoori Masala Recipe
I mainly cook vegetables because I am totally terrified of eating uncooked meat and bones creep me out.
- Shan Tandoori Masala 1 tbs ( found at your local Indian grocery store, however feel free to replace the masala with chili powder, ginger garlic paste, lemon juice and turmeric 1/2 tsp of each)
- 1 lb chicken (I prefer boneless)
- 2tbs yogurt (I used plain non-fat)
- green cooking papaya
- little salt
- olive oil
- few drops red food coloring
- Coat chicken with a marinade of garlic ginger paste, turmeric, salt, and chili powder OR Shan Tandoori Chicken Masala mixed with yogurt and food coloring. *DO in advance*
- Chop up green cooking papaya into 5 medium-thick slices
3. Place green cooking papaya inside of the pile of chicken while it is marinating (this makes the chicken tender).
4. Marinate for 2 hours prior to cooking.
5. Lightly pan fry chicken in olive oil for 30 minutes or until fully cooked.
I think the chicken looks way better with food coloring and it’s not as spicy as it looks!
Since I clearly need some help with my future, I want to be inspired by you. What do you do for a living and why do you enjoy it or hate it?
