So follow the recipe for medium chicken curry above EXCEPT add more fresh ginger. You want a piece roughly as big as your thumb. Also add a teaspoon of turmeric powder and 1 teaspoon of chilli powder (more if you like it hotter) when you add your curry masala.

Mild chicken curries stayed about the same. Madras curries were flavoured with other ingredients seen often in southern Indian curries. Fresh green chillies were introduced for example and as in this recipe, a good dose of sweet mango chutney.

Hi DanI made all the pre-prepared elemnets for this recipe over the last few days and completed the Madras yesterday evening. A-MAZE-ING!!! It will be my go-to curry for the fore-seeable and I'm thrilled that I still have loads of base sauce and cooked chicken in the freezer. I'm now going to explore some of your side-dish recipes.Thank you so much.

Rogan josh consists of pieces of lamb or mutton braised with a gravy flavoured with garlic, ginger and aromatic spices (clove, bay leaves, cardamom, and cinnamon), and in some versions incorporating onions or yogurt.[8] After initial braising, the dish may be finished using the dampokhtak slow cooking technique.[9] Its characteristic deep red colour traditionally comes from dried flowers or root of Alkanna tinctoria (ratan jot)[7] and from liberal amounts of dried, deseeded Kashmiri chilies (lal mirch). These chilies, whose flavor approximates that of paprika, are considerably milder than the typical dried cayenne pepper of Indian cuisine. The recipe's spice emphasises aroma rather than heat. Saffron is also part of some traditional recipes.

This book includes a lighter version of my curry house style base sauce and lower-cal versions of curry house classics, including starters like onion bhajis and spicy hot chicken wings, indulgent Goan prawn curry, chicken tikka masala and saag paneer, your favourite sides such as tarka dhal and coconut rice, plus chutneys and snacks.

Peter Joseph's stunning chicken bhuna recipe is incredibly simple to make. Bhunas are characterised by a thick, deliciously intense coating sauce with a well-spiced but moderate heat, perfect for warming the cockles on a chilly winter evening. Serve with fluffy basmati rice and some homemade roti.

Alfred Prasad serves up his take on a paneer jalfrezi recipe. Though not, strictly speaking, a 'curry', jalfrezi is wildly popular in the UK - learn more in Alfred's guide to the origins of Britain's favourite Indian takeaway curries.

Many of the dishes we know and love would be unrecognisable in India. Chicken tikka masala was created in Britain when a chef added tomato and onion paste to grilled chicken. The dish was unknown in India until the 90s when British companies began exporting it.

Chicken karahi, also known as gosht karahi (when prepared with goat or lamb meat instead of chicken), and kadai chicken, is a dish from the Indian subcontinent noted for its spicy taste; it is notable in Pakistani and North Indian cuisine. The Pakistani version does not have capsicum or onions whereas the North Indian version uses capsicum. The dish is prepared in a karahi (wok). It can take between 30 and 50 minutesto prepare and cook the dish and can be stored for later consumption. It can be served with naan, roti or rice. This dish is one of the hallmarks of Indian and Pakistani cuisine.

Curry house chefs here often use the jalfrezi method to stir-fry green peppers, onions and plenty of green chillies as the basis for a curry with just a little sauce. The chillies make the jalfrezi taste very fresh but also make it one of the hotter curries on the restaurant menu.

The meat deal: Large chunks of chicken thigh have been coated in a red tikka colouring first before being cooked with big chunks of green pepper and large whole wedges of onion artlessly thrown into the pot.

It's been a little over 50 days since Novotel Chennai Sipcot opened its doors. A mid-scale brand that belongs to the Accor group, most Novotel hotels around the world are situated in business districts or near tourist havens. In Chennai, the hotel is located opposite the SIPCOT IT Park entrance, on the Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR), home to several IT companies and gated residential communities. A short driveway leads to the entrance of the hotel and once in, one forgets the bustle of the world outside. It's a contemporary space with fuss free interiors and a sense of quiet luxury envelops the visitor as he or she steps in.A group of us bloggers were invited by Executive Chef Jaideep Kanungoe to the Chef's table for Bloggers at The Square, the all day restaurant. A lift whisks us up to the Upper Ground Floor where the restaurant is situated. The first thing that strikes me as I enter is the aroma of some good cooking.The F&B Manager takes some of us early birds on a tour of the bar and restaurant and adjoining it, the gym, pool and an alfresco dining area. It's a pleasant space and parts of the roof are open to the elements. He tells us the hotel's focus is on Family, Food, Fitness and Fun. All four are definitely obvious. Back at the Square, the restaurant is slowly filling up with diners. It is a large room with enough space between the tables for people to navigate and reach the buffet counters without bumping into other people or furniture.All along one length is an open kitchen. At one end is a wood fired oven from which deliciously thin crust pizzas emerge. Beside it, the Continental, Pan Asian, Indian sections and then the grill and tandoor area. Take a turn to the left and there's the bread, salad and cold cut counters; in front, on an island is a table full of desserts.The cheese platterCold cuts and saladsMarinated meats and the tandoorWe are lead to our seats in the cosy private dining room and served a selection of dishes from each of the sections. The first dish itself had us floored. A stone oven baked focaccia sandwiched with pesto, caramelised onions, semi dried tomatoes and chevre, it was utterly delicious. And yes, you can thank me anytime for recommending it!!Katafi prawns; grilled prawns;wonton wrapped prawn rollsDelicious also were the prawns. Again, I would recommend the katafi wrapped prawns with the hint of basil and the wonton wrapped prawn rolls which had a lovely citrusy burst from finely chopped kaffir lime leaves.Mushroom & asparagus hargao, chicken & ginger dumplingsThe Genovese pizza topped with pesto, mozzarella, green beans and potato. Beautiful colours and flavours.Cold mezze platterAmong the main courses was a dish of mushroom pasta and a luscious spaghetti with smoked chicken in a creamy pesto sauce.Classic caprese salad, chicken & peas in creamy pesto sauce, assorted mushroom pastaThere was also lamb shank curry which went well with the Nargisi pulao and the selection of Indian breads.From the Asian kitchen, there was aromatic Thai fried rice, minced chicken with basil and bird's eye chillies, and a dish of stir fried broccoli, kailan, and asparagus. I love simple Asian flavours and this one hit the right spots. My only grouse was with the steamed fish as the slices were too thick and perhaps a more delicate fish would have conveyed the flavours better.Asian kitchen specialsFor the vegetarians, starters included tandoori aloo chatpate, delicious cheese stuffed mushrooms and chutney paneer from the Indian kitchen.Indian starters- chutney paneer tikka, mustard fish tikka, murgh malai kebab, tandoori aloo chatpate And these -Stuffed mushroomsDal makhani; lasooni malai palak; naan The dessert table was bountiful, jars of pastel coloured meringues were laid out and around them, a selection of prettily plated tiny portions of desserts that included apple strudel, fruit trifle, mud cake and mousse.My favourites were French white chocolate cake, espresso coffee tart and beetroot almond cake.The buffet at Novotel is without a doubt, one of the best in Chennai. At 950/++ per head, it's bang for the buck. Those lucky ducks who live along the OMR - how I envy them!! createSummaryAndThumb("summary7587130937527419350");

Pat Chapman is in India grilling up a storm. At the food festival titled "Pat Chapman Grills the World", he is showcasing 14 of his new marinades at various Barbeque Nation restaurants across the country. The effervescent chef was at the Vadapalani branch of the restaurant chain on Thursday night, doing what he loves best - spicing up food. The new marinades are named after various countries and the particular ingredients they are known for - horseradish from the British Isles, poblano chilli from Mexico, jerk marinade from Jamaica etc.I was invited to review the demo and the dinner, the highlight for me was meeting the chef. After all, who hasn't heard of the Curry King of the UK who "baltified" Britain? Walk into the cookery section any bookshop and you will find on the shelves books written by him on... what else but curry!Thanks to the rain and the horrible traffic, we almost missed the show. The entrance to the restaurant was through a slightly seedy corridor but the restaurant itself was warm and welcoming. On the walls hung small flags of the countries the special ingredients represented and that lent a festive air to the whole space. On a large table in the middle of the restaurant, components for the marinades were laid out and behind it stood Pat Chapman and his assistants. Just about all the diners and the staff at the restaurant stood around, cameras in hand. The emcee made the necessary introductions and the show got underway.Pat Chapman all set for the demoThree marinades were to be demonstrated at this session so the ingredients for the jerk chicken marinade - chopped onions, muscovado sugar, apple cider vinegar and other spices and condiments were measured into a mixing bowl. Chicken drumsticks were coated with this marinade, pushed onto skewers and then taken off to be cooked.The second marinade was Mighty Hot Mai Tai fish. Basa fish slices were marinated in a paste of green chillies, lemongrass, basil, fish sauce and oil. No rum in it though! Threaded onto skewers, they too were dispatched to the kitchen.The third marinade was Arabian inspired with powdered black and white sesame seeds, tahini paste, pepper and olive oil. Bright green broccoli florets were coated with this interesting mix and the chef told us how to blanch the florets without losing that beautiful colour. He also emphasised that it was best to use extra virgin olive oil.Being a live show, the presenter went around the tables asking questions about the restaurant and their signature dishes and even the countries whose flags hung on the walls. Those with the right answers were rewarded with gift vouchers.Then it was time to taste. A portable grill was embedded into our table, skewers with different marinated meats and vegetables were laid over it, some of the starters were served on the plates. Nine vegetarian and 6 non vegetarian new flavours are listed on the menu.Persian veg patty; Sichuan cottage cheeseAlbuquerque atomic chicken; Jamaican jerk chicken drumstickYorkshire lamb kebabs with horseradish marinadeMore skewersWe loved most of the new marinades. My favourites were Spanish Valencia prawns, atomic chicken (it came with a heat warning but I didn't find it that spicy), Outback emu (not emu meat but chicken) and jerk chicken drumstick. The Persian veg patties were melt-in-the-mouth soft and the mushrooms were delightful. I particularly liked the broccoli coated with the Arabian Lebanese marinade and while I like my vegetables just done, I would have loved them more if those broccoli were a little more tender. What can I say about Barbeque Nation's signature Cajun spiced potatoes other than that they are utterly delicious.Without a doubt, the new marinades are a welcome change, but I felt that some of them tasted too subtle. Thai basil and fish sauce are strong flavours, I could not taste either on the grilled fish.As for the main course, the Texan chicken drumsticks had a lovely colour on them but they were too tangy. The Indonesian bumbu kachang too failed to deliver - the peanut flavour was merely hinted at while it needed to be the star of the dish. The Mangalore prawn curry was another delicious dish. It was the perfect accompaniment to both white rice and the selection of Indian breads.RollsA selection of dessertsThe new menuChatting with Pat and his wife, he told us his interest in culinary matters was influenced by his grandmother. We also learnt that he had once been a pilot and that this is his 44th trip to India!There was a 2 man band playing live music and when he was asked to sing, Pat sportively got up to the stage and belted out Glen Campbell's 'Rhinestone Cowboy'.Needless to say, the crowd adored him. Now here's a chef who wears many hats.Getting an internationally renowned chef of Pat Chapman's calibre to enhance its diners' culinary experience, Barbeque Nation is indeed onto a good thing. Do catch the festival that is on till October 31st.createSummaryAndThumb("summary6175485560391933790");Read more 350c69d7ab
