Chicken with Chic Peas and Apricots Preparation
Place the chicken in a large non-porous bowl. Put the chili, cinnamon, cumin, cardamom pods and cloves into a spice grinder and grind as fine as possible. Rub half the spice mixture into the chicken with half the ginger and garlic. Set aside for at least one hour. Cook the apricots in the water until tender. Leave to cool in the pan. Heat a wok. Add the oil and cook the onion for 7 minutes stirring frequently. Stir in the rest of the ginger and garlic and cook for a further minute. Remove the onion mixture. Add the chicken and cook for 3 minutes until lightly cooked. Add the remaining spice mixture and onion mixture and cook for a further 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato pure, vinegar, sugar, chic peas and apricots with the cooking juice. Cook for 15 minutes and serve. VARIATIONS Use 450 G or 1 lb leg of lamb chops instead of chicken.
