recipes

The recipe is from this book.

Original Recipe:
4-pound chicken cut into 8 to 10 pieces and skinned
2 medium red potatoes, peeled and quartered
3/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
salt
1 1/2 medium onions, roughly diced
5 garlic cloves
2-inch piece fresh ginger, pelled and cut in half
3 tbs oil
1-inch piece cinnamon stick
12 cardamom pods
9 whole cloves
10 black peppercorns
3 whole dried red chiles
1 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 fresh hot green chile, cut in half
2 large tomatoes, chopped
2 tbs tomato paste
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lemon

Combine the chicken, potatoes, 1/2 tsp of turmeric, 1/4 tsp of cayenne and 1/4 tsp salt in a bowl and stir to coat the chicken and potatoes. Let stand while making the sauce.

Put the onions, garlic, and ginger in a food processor and finely mince. Set aside.

Combine 2 tbs of the oil, the cinnamon stick, cardamom, cloves, black peppercorns, red chiles, coriander and cumin in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring, until the cinnamon unfurls, 1 to 2 minutes. And the minced onion mixture, the green chile and 1 tsp salt and cook, stirring, until the vegetables brown around the edges, about 10 minutes.

Remove the cinnamon and green chile, stir in the remaining 1/4 tsp turmeric and 1/4 tsp cayenne. Add the tomatoes and tomato paste and cook, stirring for 5 minutes. Transfer to a food processor blender and puree until smooth, set aside.

Heat the remaining 1 tbs oil the same pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and potatoes and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add the yogurt 1 tbs at a time and stir well after each addition. Once all the yogurt is mixed in cook, stirring for another 2 minutes.

Add the pureed tomato mixture and bring to a boil. Stir in the water. Return to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Stir about every 5 minutes. Uncover and cook for 5 minutes to thicken the sauce. Stir in the cilantro and lemon juice. Taste for salt and serve hot.

Changes I made: I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and only made a half recipe.

This was good, not real spicy, but it does have a bit of a bite.

This fried tofu recipe caught my eye because of it’s creative use of nutritional yeast as a breading. It added a great flavor to this simple and quick recipe.

Grandma Inis Counselman Cookbook 16

A few nice cookbook images I found:

Grandma Inis never knew what the internet was, and she has no idea that her old recipes are now posted on the internet, but I wanted to save and preserve them for her Great Great Grandchildren that are now living in her houses. It looks like the book wore out many decades ago, and Grandpa had to sew it back together for her, but with a little computer enhancement, I am still able to read her writing. I see a lot of lard being used, and I do not know if my doctor will allow that for me today, but I sure remember the food was great. If anyone wants any certain pages, just email me; the JPGs are about 2MB each.
