• 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
  • 1 pound andouille sausage(qeema ki tiki or aant) , sliced into rounds
  • 3 small bell peppers diced (I used a yellow, red and green bell pepper)

  • 1 white onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain white rice
  • 2 tbsp Cajun seasoning (msala)
  • 1 tsp dried thyme(jungli podina), crushed
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper(lal mrch)
  • 1 bay leaf(taij pat)
  • 1 pound raw large shrimp(jheenga), peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup sliced okra
  • salt and freshly cracked black pepper

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a very large, deep sauté pan over medium high heat.  Add the chicken and sausage and sauté for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the sausage is lightly browned.  Transfer to a clean plate and set aside.
  2. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the stock pot.  Add bell peppers, celery, jalapeño, onion and garlic. Sauté for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened.

  4. Add the crushed tomatoes, chicken stock, rice, Cajun seasoning, thyme, cayenne, bay leaf, and stir to combine.  Continue cooking until the mixture reaches a simmer.  Then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for about 25-30 minutes, or until the rice is nearly cooked through, stirring every 5 minutes or so along the way so that the rice does not burn.
  5. Add the shrimp, okra, and stir to combine. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are cooked through and pink. Stir in the chicken and sausage, and remove and discard the bay leaf.
  6. Taste season the jambalaya with salt, pepper, and additional Cajun seasoning if needed.   Remove from heat.

  1. I think that a foreclosure can have a important effect on the client’s life. Property foreclosures can have a 8 to a decade negative effects on a applicant’s credit report. The borrower having applied for home financing or virtually any loans for instance, knows that a worse credit rating will be, the more hard it is to acquire a decent loan. In addition, it might affect a borrower’s chance to find a respectable place to lease or hire, if that gets to be the alternative property solution. Good blog post.

  2. Thanks for the suggestions you have shared here. Something else I would like to state is that personal computer memory requirements generally rise along with other advances in the technological know-how. For instance, any time new generations of cpus are introduced to the market, there is usually a related increase in the size and style calls for of all pc memory and also hard drive room. This is because the software operated simply by these processors will inevitably boost in power to make use of the new technology.
