(Chicken with Walnut Sauce)


1 medium chicken
300 grams of walnuts, shelled
3 tablespoons of fresh cilantro
5 onions, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of clove
1 tablespoon of vinegar
1 teaspoon of marigold
1 teaspoon of fenugreek
1 teaspoon of coriander seeds
Ground red hot pepper to taste

Boil the chicken until half ready. Take it out of the pot and put it in the oven. Bake it until it is brown. Stew finely chopped onions in the fat taken off the chicken broth. Add the broth to the onions gradually, stirring them frequently to avoid burning.

Mince shelled walnuts together with garlic. Add all the spices (except fenugreek), salt and pepper to the walnut mixture. Pour the chicken broth (6 cups) into it.

When the onions are well stewed, add the walnut mixture to them and simmer for 15 minutes. Crush fresh cilantro in the mortar together with salt, squeeze the juice (out of it), and add it together with fenugreek to the walnut mixture. Simmer it for 5 minutes. Cut the fried chicken into pieces and put it into the hot walnut sauce.
