Maybe this is a more Indianized version of chicken broth or soup. Each time I caught a flu or fell terribly sick, I’d have this made for me. It’s super easy, doesn’t require much effort and is extremely delicious and nourishing. If you’ve got a sensitive gut like me, this is well worth a try!
You can trust me on this one!
- Chicken with bone (any part)
- Black Peppercorns (as per your preferance)
- Ginger (small pieces)
- Salt to taste
All you have to do is dump in all the ingredients (except cilantro and lemon) into a pot, add water (enough to cover the chicken or a little more than that) and let it boil for a good 30 minutes. Lower the heat, add more water if needed and let the chicken slow cook for another 30 minutes. The chicken cooks so well it practically starts falling off the bone :)
If you’d like to have a thicker broth, you could add and reduce the water a few times. Three times works perfectly.
Bowl it up. Squeeze in some lemon and garnish it with cilantro. That’s it!
Optional – 1 teaspoon of coconut cream/milk.
