Hi foodies..Welcome AYESHA'S KITCHEN. A nice strong flavored Ginger chicken is  a must try recipe  as always. This is yet another quick and delicious recipe that calls for simple ingredients. Most of  the Chinese dish starts with a common process, that is marinating ( chicken) and deep frying. But here is a twist,  that i just cooked the marinated chicken until half done without adding water and then added the onion, tomato,oil, cooked ginger juice along with the sauces without even sauteing.  Really it is a must try recipe with very less oil and tastes the best ever. Here is the recipe which i inspired from a cooking channel. Do try and drop your feedback.


Chicken                                   - 500 g, cut into very small pieces
Turmeric powder                     - 1 tsp        
Kashmir chili powder              - 4 tbsp       
Ginger garlic paste                  - 2 tbsp
Ginger                                      - 50 gm or 4 tbsp, crushed
Onion                                        - 2 nos, medium, sliced
Tomato                                      - 2 nos, small, sliced
Coconut oil                                - 2 tbsp
Tomato sauce                             - 3 tbsp or 4 tbsp
Soy sauce                                    - 1 tbsp
Sugar                                           - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves


  • Marinate the chicken with turmeric powder, chili powder, ginger garlic paste and salt. Cook the chicken with lid closed for 8 minutes in a medium flame. Do not add water. (You can also shallow fry the marinated chicken), but i just cooked it and  this tastes really delicious and healthy. 
  • Mean while, cook the crushed ginger in half a cup of water. Allow it to boil until the water get reduced to half and then take the juice by straining it. Set aside.
  • When chicken is half cooked, add sliced onion, tomato and coconut oil to it. Mix well. Again cook with lid closed. Stir occasionally.
  • Cook until the onion and tomato becomes soft and thick gravy forms. Then add the juice of  ginger, mix well. Check for salt.
  • Finally add tomato sauce, soy sauce, sugar mixture  to it and mix well. Cook for another few minutes and garnish with coriander leaves and celery.
