4-5 small green Thai chilies, finely minced (to taste)
pinch of turmeric (haldi)
pinch of smoked Spanish paprika
½ tsp garam masala
1 tsp ground coriander powder
1 tsp ground cumin powder
1 tsp red chili powder, to taste
salt & pepper, to taste
1 (10 ounce size) can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed well
1 (10 ounce size) can garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed well
1-1½ cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock or even water)
2 tbsp oil (vegetable or canola)
freshly chopped chives for garnish
In a large deep skillet on medium high heat, add the oil. When hot, add the onions along with the garlic, ginger & green chilies. Let cook until the onions are translucent & just slightly brown. Then add in the spices (turmeric, smoked Spanish paprika, garam masala, ground coriander powder, ground cumin powder, red chili powder, salt & pepper). Let the spices fry for a few minutes before adding in the ground chicken. Mix well to combine & let cook until the chicken is browned.
Now transfer the mixture to a slow cooker along with both the cannellini & garbanzo beans. Lastly, add in the chicken stock & cook on the low setting for 4 hours. Garnish with the freshly chopped chives & serve with toasted naan or pita wedges.
