Those "Hai Hai Mirche, Uff Uff Mirche, Foofoo Mirche" Chicken Bites You know by now that I call anything that's really spicy "foofoo" An old school friend sent me a song to remind me how we used to try & dance to this song like @therealkarismakapoor & @sushmitasen47 🤦‍♀️Oh God! I got so nostalgic watching this song from the movie "Biwi No. 1" that I decided to foofoo up our dinner I marinated diced chicken breasts (vegetarians feel free to substitute with paneer works well too 😊) in a mix of dalle chilli powder (I had dried Dale chillies that I bought in Sikkim, you can use lots of regular chilli flakes), soya sauce, chicken stock cube, balsamic vinegar, freshly cracked black pepper, ginger-garlic pastes & a touch of ketchup (usually don't eat ketchup but made an exception) I tempered a mix of oil & butter with onions & green chillies. I cooked the marinated chicken in this till done. I ate mine as is with gulps of chilled nimbu pani/lime juice water whilst @beingbengt ate his with steamed rice Though I have to admit – it was the best part of my just post teenage life, THANK GOD there were no mobile phones or social media at the time! I'm cringing just remembering us practicing our steps💃😂 Imagine if someone had taken a video of it😂🤦‍♀️
