Apricot chicken is good old-fashioned comfort food. It is sweetened by the apricot nectar and the kids will love these familiar flavours.
1. Wash chicken and cut into 16 pieces. Soak apricots in vinegar.
2. Grind masala ingredients to a fine consistency, gradually adding up to 100 ml of water, as required. In a pan, heat oil and fry the onion paste over moderate heat, till brown. Stir in the ground masala and tomatoes. Cook till the oil separates. Add the chicken and brown well in the masala. Pour in stock and simmer for 45 minutes or till chicken is tender.
3. Mix in the apricots and vinegar during the last few minutes of cooking.
