Garlicky Cornish Hen

Hello All, sorry for such a long silence.  Life has been a little bit crazy.  Well, no complaints though.  This recipe for Cornish Hen is very simple and easy and takes less than 30 minutes to make.  I like the Cornish Hen with skin on.  You can remove it if you do not like it.  I personally think that the skin adds amazing flavor!



Cornish Hens - 2 (each cut into 4-5 pieces)
Garlic paste - 3 table spoons
Salt - 2 table spoons
Black Pepper - 2 table spoons (crushed)
Turmeric - 1 tea spoon
Amchur (dry mango powder) - 1 tea spoon
Cumin powder - 2 tea spoons
All spice - 1 tea spoon
Olive oil - 2 table spoons
Water - 1 cup


To a non-stick pan on medium heat, add the Olive oil.  Once the oil is heated, add the Cornish hens, Salt, Turmeric, Garlic and water.  Let it cook covered on low heat for about 20 minutes till the chicken is fully cooked.  Open the lid, add all the remaining ingredients and mix in well.  Add a little more water if necessary.  Stir fry it till all the water is evaporated and the chicken is fried till slightly brown.

Note: You can substitute Cornish Hen for Chicken.
