Chicken Pepper Steak with Mashed Potatoes

Saurday are the most laziest day in the week, I wake up late and stare at the newspaper for an hour, then realize its time for breakfast...oh no actually lunch :) Yes..! Its the time in between Breakfast n Lunch which is commonly known as brunch......! Half the time i am racking my brains for a good healthy filling brunch,  This saturday was cold.... and i snuggled to get some extra sleep result of which is less time to cook.

If you are a bangalorean there is no way you would have missed the STEAK at ONLY PLACE. My sister n me can talk for hours about the taste and the quality of the meat there. The meat is always perfectly cooked with the right spices and served with mashed potatoes and cooked vegetables (Bull eye, upon request). Since my entire family was a fan of this dish i wanted to cook this for them,

This weekend it was STEAK time in our home. (This is my entry to this month's Monthy Mingle with the theme BRUNCH)

Chicken Breast - 2 (I used chicken with bones)
Mustard - 1tsp
Pepper - 3tsp
Jeera - 1tsp
Soya Sauce - 6tsp (As per taste)
Tomato Sauce - 6tsp
Garlic - 6 (Finely chopped)
Onion - 1 (Finely chopped)

Cooking Method
Make a fine powder of mustard, pepper and jeera. Marinate chicken with this powder, salt, soya sauce and tomato sauce. Marinate this mixture in fridge, preferably overnight.
In a cooker pan, melt butter, add garlic, saute it for a minute, Add chopped onions, fry till it turns translucent. Add the marinated chicken along with half a cup of water. Close the cooker, cook for 1 whistle.

Open the cooker, remove the contents on a pan, Boil it till the sauce reduces to half the quantity.

Note : You can use mutton or red meat instead of chicken, Cook for 3 whistles.

Cooking Time : 20 minutes
Serves : 2

Mashed Potatoes

Potatoes - 3 (Cooked and chopped)
Garlic - 3 (Finely minced)
Milk - 5tsp

Mash the potaoes along with the butter, milk, salt and garlic.

In a large plate, place the steak along with boiled vegetables. Arrange the mashed potatoes in the side.
Make a bulls eye and place it in the center. Serve along with toasted brown bread.
