Domi's Do-piaza (Darth's Base)
« on: June 23, 2007, 01:02 PM »


Ingredients:

3 x chicken breasts, cut into bitesize pieces
2 x finely chopped birds eye chillis
1 x Cube Ginger puree
1 x Cube garlic puree
1 x portion Darth's Base gravy (warmed)
1 tblsp chopped coriander
2 x large spanish onions, cut into rings
1 x red onion, finely chopped
1.5 tblsp tomato puree (double concentrate)
1 tsp garam masala
vegetable oil /ghee

Spice Paste mix:

1 tsp salt
2 pinches dried curry leaves, crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
0.5 tsp ground coriander
0.5 tsp smoked paprika (I use La Chinata)
0.5 tsp ground fenugreek
0.25 tsp asafoetida
1 tsp curry powder (I used hot but you can add whatever is to your taste)
1 tsp chilli powder. (I used mild, I'd run out of hot)
seeds of 2 green cardamoms
1 tblsp lemon juice

Method:

1. Make spice mix paste using a little water if necessary.
2. Heat a little oil in a pan and fry your onion rings until golden brown and just starting to caramelise. Remove from pan and chop into almost a paste. Set aside.
3. Fry finely chopped red onion until soft and translucent. Add ginger, garlic and finely chopped chillis, cook out for a couple of minutes.
4. Add spice paste and cook out for 30-40 seconds.
5. Add chicken pieces and coat/seal well.
6. Add Base sauce, tomato puree, chopped coriander & onion paste and simmer and stir for ten to fifteen minutes or until chicken is almost cooked through.
7. Sprinkle over garam masala, stir in, cook for another couple of minutes.
8. garnish with fresh coriander and serve.

Enjoy ;)

2 indian junkies accidentally snorted curry powder instead of cocaine. Both were rushed to hospital ...one's in a korma, the other's got a dodgy tikka ;D

Looking good Domi,  ;) looks like one for me to have a go at (when I have done all the others I want to do from here). Was there any special reason you used Darth`s base? Maybe because you had some left? I suppose it would work with most bases on here?? How many servings would you say it made ? Handbag must have made it for a minimum of 5 people. Nice picture.......  ;D

Thanks Mike :)

I used darth's base as that was my current fave at that time. The pic I posted was of the leftovers ;) but I got enough for three hungry eaters and what's left above out of it :D I've since made it using Stew's base which gave a bloody good result too, although a little hotter lol ;D

If you prefer a sweeter flavour to your curries, sprinkle your onion rings with a little salt while frying as it releases more of the onion's natural sugars and cuts down on bitterness i8f you happen to slightly overcook your onions ;)

Thanks too Domi, This was just superb. I soaked the oinion rings in ice water for an hour before draining and frying with the additional salt and the resulting dish was really sweet and one of my best curries yet. Loved it cheers Panpot
