Friends experimenting with the Sundooq Dohneiiong Mix.
Chicken - 1/2 kg
Ginger - 1 inch
Garlic - 10-12 pods
Lemon - 1
Dark Soy Sauce - 8 tsp
Brown Sugar - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Star anise - 2
Alcohol - 20ml (ideally rum/wine)
Sundooq’s Dohneiiong Curry Mix - 1 pack
Salt - as per taste
Grind the ginger and garlic. Be sure to save a few pods to add them in crushed form later.
Wash the chicken thoroughly. Add the ginger-garlic paste, dark soy sauce and rum into to and let it sit for 30-45 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan and add the star anise. Wait till it releases its aroma.
In the meantime, add the brown sugar and lemon to the chicken marinade and leave it for another 10 minutes.
Once the oil is hot enough and the star anise has released all its aroma, add the chicken along with its marinade.
Now, add Sundooq's Dohneiiong mix and stir gently, yet well.
Close the pan and let it cook for 12-15 minutes. Serve with rice.
I am Vismaya, a freelancer + entrepreneur, full-time pet mom, Bollywood buff, coffee connoisseur, and a hopeless foodie. My biggest discovery during the lockdown in 2020 was that I could cook! I experimented the hell out of all that I could find in my small little pantry. The realisation of my love for the process eventually led to me say goodbye to my amazing cook!
During the free time I can steal away from my demanding job where I am the Accountant, Business Development Manager, Planner, Strategist, and Intern, I tend to my small garden, read books ranging from feminist literature to chick-lit to biographies, sit in my balcony and stare at the changing sky. I am currently reading two amazing books - The Little Book of Lykke and A Man Called Ove. I am also re-watching a powerfully written series - The Bold Type on Netflix - and refreshing my memory before the new season comes out (which, needless to say, I am very excited about!)
My dream is to someday have a library cafe that will bring together my many interests. This place will have great coffee, good food, and stimulating conversations over books and views!
