White Stew....Indian style

Another family favourite, white stew with an Indian flavour!

1/2 kg Chicken ( I use legs, thighs and breasts)
2 cups cut vegetables (I used carrots, broccoli, peas and mushrooms)
2 tblspns oil
1 onion sliced
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup chipped celery
Garam masala (comprising of 6-7 cloves, 2 piecies cinnamon sticks, 4-5 cardamom  large bay leaves)
1 heaped tblspn  flour
2 cups milk mixed with 1 cup water
salt and pepper to taste

Grind the garlic and celery into a paste.

Heat oil and add the garam masala. Fry for a few seconds and then add the sliced onion. Fry till the onions are brown and then add the chicken. Fry till chicken is golden, add the garlic and celery paste, salt and pepper. Stir well then add the vegetables, cover, put the flame on simmer and cook till chicken and vegetables are cooked. (The chicken and vegetables will give out its own water and this makes part of the gravy) Mix the flour into the milk mixture (add milk slowly to the flour to ensure there are no lumps). Put the flame on high and bring the stew to a boil and add the milk and flour mixture and cook for a few seconds till the gravy thickens!

IT tastes great with plain boiled rice!
