What is Garam Masala?
Garam Masala is an mixture of ground spices, usually black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, nutmeg, and turmeric. The spice with provide a hint of a curry flavor. If curry flavor isn't your thing, substitute individual spices of your choice.
Do I need to use fresh Cilantro in the apricot chicken?
No. If you don't cook with cilantro often it can seem wasteful to buy a whole bunch and use just a few sprigs. It's perfectly fine to use cilantro in a tube and is easily found in the produce section of the grocery store. I use the Garden Gourmet brand.
Can I use a different type of bean?
Yes, common substitutes are chickpeas or small white beans, if preferred it's okay to leave the beans out completely.
Should I use fresh Garlic in apricot chicken?
If you are in a rush or just hate mincing garlic a great option is chunky garlic past by Gourmet Garden, easy to find in the refrigerated section of the produce department.
I hope you enjoy my apricot chicken stew recipe as much as I do.
