How to Make Chicken Suqaar




This is a recipe on how to make a delicious Somali recipe, step by step. Enjoy!

Step 1: Ingredients

1/2 cup of water
Chicken suqaar (roughly 20-30 pieces)
2 Chicken bouillon cubes
1 onion, chopped finely
3 large potatoes
1 1/2 spoon of turmeric

Step 2: Directions

Pour 1/2 cup water into a pot.

Step 3: Directions

Add Chicken suqaar (roughly 10-20 pieces)

Step 4: Directions

Add 2 Chicken bouillon cubes

Step 5: Directions

Cover lid and turn on high heat.

Step 6: Directions

After 15 minutes, add chopped onion into the pot and turn on med- high heat.

Step 7: Directions

When the chicken looks ready and cooked, take it out of the pot and place in a seperate bowl.

Step 8: Directions

Make sure there is a little water mix left in the pot. Chop the potatoes into medium sized square pieces (doesn't need to be perfect) and add to the water mix. Add as much water necessary so that the potatoes are covered in water, cover pot, and put on high heat.

Step 9: Directions

After cooking for 15- 20 minutes, check to see it the potatoes looked soft and cooked. If they are: add 1 1/2 spoons of turmeric, and the chicken you cooked. Place lid on pot and let cook until everything comes together and the suqaar is thick.

Step 10: Directions

Pour in bowls and eat with a type of bread. I prefer Malawax. It's a sweet, thin, Somali bread that goes perfectly with Suqaar!
