Mozambique Portuguese Chicken served with chips and coconut rice.

If we cant go to Mozambik , we bring Mozambik to us. My family and I simply loved the food at the Mozambik Restaurant.
Today we decided to recreate Mozamik at home.

Papas Portuguese Sauce is a hot , delicious sauce , which can be used as both as a marinade and a sauce. This delicious sauce which is made with red hot chilies, fresh garlic, olive oil and a variety of other ingredients will turn you into a master-chef in the kitchen.

I marinated the chicken using @papasspicecafe home-made Portuguese sauce. This  makes the perfect Portuguese chicken but it is not for the faint hearted. You should expect an extremely hot meal.

I decided to make a coconut rice. It was the perfect rich and creamy accompaniment to the meal.

Soak 2 cups of rice for at least 1.5 hours and strain in a colander.
In a pot, melt 25g of butter/ghee.
Add in 5 cloves, 1 cinnamon stick, 5 elatchi seeds, 1 star seed, curry leaves and 5 whole black peppers.
Add in 1 finely chopped onion. Saute until golden brown.
Add strained rice.
Pour in 2 cans of coconut milk.
Stir in until the rice is cooked
Once the rice is cooked, add in the roasted cashews.
Add salt to taste.

Garnish with dhania.
Can be served as a side dish to Portuguese chicken and a variety of other meals.
