Chicken Kima

My daughters are feeling the Indo-Pak food this week :) To have them eating anything is a miracle, but both of them eating consistently all week? It. is. the. dream. Once, the dream was becoming a US Ambassador or curing some terminal disease, but now it's getting these two precocious, vocal darlings to eat regular meals. This did it for them:

Chicken Kima (courtesy of my mother):

1 onion, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb. ground chicken
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper*
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp lemon juice (half a squeezed lemon)

Fry the minced onion in the oil over medium heat for about 4 mins. Add garlic, stir for another 2 mins. Add all the spices, and about 2 Tbsp water, and then fry the whole pan for about 3 more mins. Add the chicken, and stir frequently until cooked through. Squeeze in lemon right near the end of the cooking. Served with white basmati rice and sliced tomatoes.

*to spice it up, add another 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
