20150913_181919

Try this great recipe out for Chicken Madras, really great results in a few easy steps – made even easier with my secret ingredient ‘Onion Masala Base’ – a universal curry paste created similar to the ‘onion gravy’ used in British Indian Takeaways/Restaurants for that authentic curry taste.

Serves about 2/3 persons.

What you will need:

1 x Shaheens Onion Masala

2 x Small chopped/diced onions

500g x chicken breasts cubed

Cooking Oil

Tomato Puree

Spices – dalchini cinnamon sticks, turmeric powder, indian bay leaves, dried fenugreek leaves, green cardamoms, rajah mixed masala curry powder, chilli flakes, lemon juice, salt.

Reduce heat to medium and add the chopped onions and stir for a few minutes until lightly brown and soft.

Uncover and add 2 tsp lemon juice, half tsp chilli flakes, 1 tsp dried fenugreek leaves, about half tsp salt [or to taste]. Cook uncovered for 5-10 minutes to reduce and thicken.

Yum!!

Tips: I like my curries quite thick , if you prefer more sauce reduce it for less time so it does not thicken as much and use less onions at the beginning [or dice up onions finer]. Watch out for the green cardamoms once cooked, not everyone likes biting into these whilst eating so it may be wise to fish them out before serving!
