1-1/2 tbsp canola oil
1 cinnamon stick
2 cardamom pods
1 bay leaf
1/2 medium onion, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1-inch chunk of ginger, peeled and minced
3/4 pound of ground chicken
1/4 pound fresh peas (frozen is ok too)
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
freshly ground black pepper
Heat the oil in a wok or large saute pan over medium-high heat.
When the oil is hot, add the cinnamon, cardamom, and bay leaf.
Stir-fry for 15 seconds.
Add onion and stir-fry until the onion begins to brown, then add the garlic and ginger and stir to incorporate it into the onion.
Add the chicken and stir-fry, using a spatula to break up the chicken into small chunks.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir-fry, mixing everything well, until everything is heated through, about 3-4 minutes.
P.S. Don't eat the bay leaf, cinnamon stick, or cardamom pods!
