I got this recipe from a cookery book. I haven’t tasted any dragon chicken before but somehow the name sounds so familiar to me. Hence I decided to try this and it turned out pretty decent. I think its more like an Indo Chinese dish. However if you know anything more about this, please do share. It seems this is one of the popular items in the menu of Mango Tree restaurant owned by Malayalam film star Dileep. That restaurant was originally the house of famous Malayalam singer Yesudas and there is a mango tree planted by his mom, hence the same name for the restaurant too. This restaurant is in Fort Cochin. Though I’m from Cochin, I haven’t been to Fort Cochin in a long time, it’s quite far from our place. Anyways, I’ve already made the list of things to do in my next India trip and a visit to Fort Cochin and various restaurants there occupies a prime place :).
Btw, have any of you been to this restaurant? Or if you know any other good restaurants in that area which I should check out, please do let me know. Coming back to the Dragon Chicken, this recipe is shared by the chef of Mango Tree. I wanted to add some cashew also (it’s not there in the original recipe), but I forgot. May be next time.You can serve this dish as a starter/appetizer or as a side dish. It’s actually good for just munching too. I just couldn’t stop munching this while taking the snaps ;)
One more thing I dont have any clue how the Dragon chicken looks like (the picture wasn’t there). Anyways may be when I visit there I can see it and also taste it first hand. Jose are you reading this ;)?
