My friends said they were coming over for lunch the next day almost exactly at the time the gas ran out, and I had to leave. I wouldn’t have time to shop that day, or be at home to get a new cylinder put in. So, plans changed, and instead of a carefully guided, slow-cooked ragda pattice for the next day’s lunch, I decided to try out a recipe I’d recently seen on Chow.com
The dish really is super-easy and turned out wonderfully, despite the fact that I only marinated it for an hour (I scored each chicken thigh deeply to let the flavour penetrate as much as it could). I made twice as much of the marinade, reserving half for stir-fry vegetables to accompany it, and served it all over coconut rice (prepare rice as usual, substituting half the water with coconut milk).
Try it. It’s easy. It’s delicious. What more do you want in a meal?
