(from Madagascar )

< Back to Christmas Recipes

Ingredients: (serves four)

  • One chicken
  • One coconut / or a can of unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • Two tomatoes
  • Two onions
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • 20 grams/0.75 oz of ginger
  • some Oil, salt and pepper

Method

Cut the chicken into small pieces and sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper to taste.
Slice the tomatoes into small cubes.
Slice the Onions.
Chop the garlic and ginger very finely.
Set all these aside to be used later.

Shred the coconut into a clean cloth. Fold the cloth around the shredded coconut. Wet the cloth using a glass of warm water. Squeeze the cloth and the shredded coconut to extract coconut milk. Discard the shredded coconut. (If you want, you can use a can of unsweetened coconut milk instead!)

Add a small amount of oil to a frypan. Saute the chicken, over a medium heat, until done. Add the onions to the pan. Continue stirring over medium heat until the onions are brown. Add the ginger, tomatoes, and garlic to the pan. Saute together briefly over medium heat.

Add coconut milk and mix well. Reduce the heat. Simmer over a low heat for thirty minutes.

Serve with rice and salad.
