The business-friendly environment and scenic locations in the city were the key driving factors to select Colombo for Altair Colombo which has changed the skyline of the city, said the developers of the iconic residential towers that were opened by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa. The real estate is a creative magnum opus of living legend Moshe Safdie, creator of Marina Bay Sands and the Jewel in Singapore. Altair comprises 404 luxury apartments spread across 1.5 mn square feet on 68 floors with ventilation, privacy and optimally laid out living spaces. “Around 250 apartments have been already sold out and we are confident the rest will be grabbed soon,” the developers said. The units have been bought by locals, Sri Lankan expats, Chinese and Koreans. The opening of the towers enables customers to initiate the fit-outs of the apartments through a phased out schedule with the totally sold apartments ready to be handed over within the next few weeks.

Pomegranate-Orange Chicken

Ingredients

1 large orange, zest finely grated, juiced

1 cup pomegranate juice

1 1/2 tsp. dry thyme leaves

1/8 tsp. freshly ground cinnamon

      Freshly ground black pepper

6 tsp. canola oil

      Kosher salt

3/4 cup lower-salt chicken broth

2 sweet potatoes,peeled and cut

  into 1-inch pieces

1x 4lb chicken, cut into 8 serving

   pieces, trimmed of extra skin

   and fat, patted dry

1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Method

 Position a rack in the center of

 the oven and heat the oven to 400*F.

In a medium saucepan, combine the

orange juice and pomegranate juice.

Bring to a boil over medium heat and

reduce to to 1/4 cup about 15 minutes.

Add 1/2 tsp. of thyme, the cinnamon,and

1/4 tsp. pepper. Divide the mixture between

two small bowls. To one bowl, add 2 tsp. of

the oil and 1/2 tsp. salt. To the other, add the

 chicken broth, all but 1tsp. of the orange

 zest,and 1/2 tsp. salt.

 Scatter the sweet potatoes and onion over

 the bottom of a metal, glass or ceramic baking

 dish that measures about 10x15x2 inches. Toss

with the remaining 4 tsp. thyme and 1 tsp.oil.

Arrange the chicken pieces, skin side up, on top

of the vegetables and brush with all of the juice- oil

mixture. Roast for 30 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and reduce the 

temperature to 375*F. Pour the juice-broth mixture

around the chicken pieces and scatter the walnuts

around the chicken. Return the pan to the oven and

roast until the vegetables are tender and an instant 

read thermometer registers 165*F in several pieces

of chicken 20-30 minutes.

Transfer the chicken to a warmed platter. Use a 

slotted spoon to arrange the vegetables and 

walnuts around the chicken. Sprinkle the remaining

orange zest and a little salt. Tilt the roasting pan so

that the juices gather in one corner. With a large,

shallow spoon,skim as much fat as possible from

the pan sauce. Season the sauce to taste with salt 

and pepper and pour into a pitcher to pass around

 at the table.

Pomegranate and Orange juices form the basis

for this dynamite chicken dish that echoes eastern 

Mediteranean flavor combinations.

Serves 8.
