Got the recipe from here.  :)

Thanks, I used happy Chris's recipe and method for the naan,
It was my best batch yet, cooked about 5 of them., all bubbled, wish I had taken a photo of them before we ate them.
I made the dough and formed them in balls about a month ago, made 11, cooked 6 on the day, then froze the rest for about 4 weeks, took them out and left for about 7 hours before cooking them. The one on the photo is from the frozen batch.

Yes the chicken was very tender, I think I have worked out how to make tender every time.

The chicken is pre-cooked first before adding to the madras, to do this I leave the chicken out of the fridge until it is room temperature, wash under cold water  then cooking the chicken chunks in a pan with about 2 table spoons of vegetable oil, I only cook the chicken until it is about 75% cooked, then turn off the stove, leave for about 30 minutes before adding.

Thanks bolinao, that would be my choice too, despite having used other recipes, with and without yeast, I personally only use H4ppy Chris's yeast free version. Can you clarify, were the naans yeast free and cooked on the stovetop, using a tava/tawa type utensil.

H4ppy Naan/CBM/SP Naan some of the best on the forum, but the yeast free is unbeatable for UK Bir replication. The thread/posts and feedback speak for themselves.

I love the apparent simplicity of the linked original Madras recipe. Another important tip from CT regarding the significance of heat and technique. No wonder the Chicken Madras is such a recommended dish to practice and learn from.

I remember reading and posting on the SP naan thread and my confusing coconut block for cream cheese in the video. Doh!!!. I don't know that I ever made it but I will today as I now see it does not contain additional baking powder.  I've eaten all of the Haldiram's frozen naan and used all my frozen SAF dough. Time to try a BIR naan again. ;D

As we can now attach PDFs, I attach Chewytikka's original recipe.

Thanks Phil.  That curry pan of CT's has copped a banging on the spoon side.
