Tovuq qanotlaridan qovurdoq (Fried chicken wings with potatoes)
"Qovurdoq" is high calorie and very nutritious meal. Try to use fresh chicken wings for this meal. You can use lamb's tail fat if you want richer taste. Garlic and red chilies also can be added.
500 ml of vegetable oil
600 grams of chicken wings
2 medium sized onions, peeled and sliced
2 medium sized capsicum,(I took one green and one red)seeded and cut in long thin strips
2 small tomatoes, finely chopped
4-5 potatoes, peeled and cut in medium chunks
1 tsp of cumin seeds
1 tsp of crushed coriander
Salt to taste
Fresh chopped greens
Heat up 500 ml of oil in deep and heavy bottomed pan. Put in all of potato chunks and fry over high heat until nice golden color. Take out all potatoes and very carefully pour out the oil, leaving about 150 ml in pan.
Put in chicken wings, fry until golden color and add in onions. Put in all spices and continue frying until onions are transparent. Set the heat on medium, add in capsicum, fry for about 5 min, then put in tomatoes. Fry until oil will start to separate and color is bright. Now, put in potatoes, fry for 5-8 min more, add in salt and take from heat. Serve on a big flat plate, sprinkling fresh greens over. Enjoy!
