This recipe is given to Ramona by her sister-in-law. Just by its little and fresh ingredients, I know I have to try it! You can try them too and tell us what you think of it.

1lb or half a kilo of tomato, diced or thinly sliced

**~to add more flavor to the the dish, Cloves, Anise Seed, Cinnamon can be added while sauteing the onion. Add fresh ground pepper towards the end.
**~ if you like it to have curry taste to it, then you can add Curry powder to the ingredient

Thanks Ramona, for sharing!!:)

I tested it today and it came out amazing! Just as I thought it would. Image seen here is from sauteed Onions, caramelized, add Cinnamon, Star Anise, Cardamom, Cloves & a quarter of teaspoon of Chili flakes (replacing fresh sliced chili.) Add sliced Carrots, then diced Tomatoes. Once tomatoes have softened, add in Chicken, simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Salt and freshly cracked Pepper to taste. Serve. Enjoy!:)
