White Chicken Recipe

The very first question is, what is white chicken and dark chicken? The main reason for the difference of white and red colour of meat is the myoglobin-a oxygen carrying protein, that transports oxygen. The myoglobin is a chemical that causes the meat to appear darker in colour. Hence, those muscles that are require more oxygen and, therefore, have more myoglobin. The more myoglobin a muscle receives, the darker the meat will be when cooked. In USA, people do not prefer dark meat because it contains myoglobin and saturated fat. As they believe it is responsible for obesity.
Hence, there is little nutritional difference between these two types of meat. 
Difference between White and dark chicken is as follows:-
White Chicken meat- refers to the breast and wings. Dark Chicken meat- the legs and thighs. Ingredients for White Chicken1 kg White Chicken pieces10 gms ginger15 flakes garlic10 Whole red chillies1 teaspoon cumin seeds1 cup cashew nuts1 cup water1/2 cup oil200 gms onions4 teaspoon s…

Egg curry

Image
Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. Egg yolks contain more calories and fat. They are the source of cholesterol, fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and lecithin.

In my home since we have moderate levels of cholesterol, we have egg white omelets often tapping into the protein power of eggs and when we want to eat whole eggs, we choose this egg curry dish. The cooked yolk (yellow) slips out easily so I sometimes leave that aside and enjoy the white with the curry flavors......enjoy spicy egg curry to warm up any meal. Ingredients for egg curry:- 4 Eggs
1 onion
1/2 tomato (pureed)
3-4 flakes of garlic
1/2-inch piece of ginger
1-2 green chilies
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
Salt To Taste
Red chili powder to taste
