A Grown Up Evening! (With a recipe thrown in for Jeera Chicken Wings!)

Yesterday I spent the evening at my friend’s house.

Some of you may recall me mentioning my group of mummy friends, the Tootie Frooties!

Well, one of the yummy mummies has recently moved house and there have been a few of us who celebrated birthdays over the last two months. It was a get together to celebrate the new house, birthdays, and a great excuse to cook up a storm and enjoy each other’s company, despite coughs, colds, kids, and work the next day!

We were missing two Tootie Frooties!

 

 

We all brought drinks and a dish.

Me, being so grown up, opted for the Coco Pops Spoon… just because!

Most of us also brought the extra addition of kids!

One of the things we discussed over dinner was the fact that this night, though it didn’t involve going out to some fancy bar or club, was what we all preferred. A chilled evening with the music of our choice pulsing through the sound system, good food, good company, and the ease of being able to have the kids milling around, not worrying about babysitters. They were perfectly happy causing their own version of havoc, while we cackled like a coven of (rather glam) witches in the kitchen!

All in all, a pretty grown-up affair, don’t you think?

Oh, and here’s what I made!

Mine was Butter Jeera Chicken Wings!

What’s the recipe? Well, I’ll tell you all!

Now I cook by Andaaza. Please forgive me, but there are no amounts for the ingredients, as my mum uses andaazaThis basically is when you just know! It’s a skill I think many mothers hone over the years while cooking the family favourite dishes!

I used

20 pieces of chicken (wings)
Butter
Olive Oil
Cumin Seeds
Garlic
Ginger
Fresh red chillis
Salt
A Little Natural Yoghurt
Garam Masala
Lemon Juice

Honestly, it is so simple, and really tasty!

  • Add the butter and oil to a wok or large pan and allow to cook together. Both fats together stop each other from burning,
  • Once hot add around two teaspoons of cumin, ginger, garlic, chillis and salt. Allow to cook for a few minutes.
  • Add the chicken, stirring so all the pieces are coated with the spices.
  • Add a tablespoon of natural yoghurt to allow the chicken to keep its moistness.
  • When the chicken is almost cooked, add around two teaspoons of garam masala and a few squirts of lemon juice.
  • Allow the chicken to cook thoroughly.
  • Enjoy!

And I think everyone enjoyed!

I hope you enjoy too!

Happy Friday Peeps! I’m off to try and control my eating for the next week, to make up for the calorific content of my diet yesterday!
