This recipe was a first for me… as are many other recipes on the blog :) Chicken Terrine is a cheat’s / homemade version of salami (not cured or smoked though). Most of us have chicken salami stocked in the freezer for a lazy Sunday brunch, a quick weekday breakfast sandwich, a no-fuss chicken appetiser with cocktails, a delicious addition to an otherwise plain omelette… the ideas are endless, and Chicken Terrine is a great, quick and easy substitute.

Unusual name… when I heard of this recipe for the first time, I googled the name to check if it actually exists! It does. Chicken changezi seems to be a popular Mughlai recipe from old Delhi. Varied spices yet such mild flavours in a rich curry… of course, I had to try it out.

This recipe of stir-fried chicken is really just my take on a recipe somewhere between a chicken pepper fry and chilli chicken.

Like, if you don't have garam masala or chicken masala, use a fresh blend of available whole spices -
