That Girl,

This sounds so fascinating, but I don't know how to steam a chicken. I can figure that out, but I didn't understand about the added spices. Are they supposed to be added to the water being used to steam the chicken, so that no spice is actually applied directly to the chicken? And is the another East Indian dish?

I'm not sure what is meant by steam exactly but I usually just brown the chicken and then put a top on the pan, turn it down, and cook it till it's done...no water. The chicken juices are what steams the chicken. I then add the rest of the stuff. That's how I understood the recipe. I'm not sure where in India this recipe comes from. I have an Indian neighbor and she gave me a fantastic cookbook and this recipe a few years ago. She also gave me a wooden spoon with a VERY long handle that was hand made in India. I LOVE to cook with it...it makes me feel like a great Chef...LOL
