Title: Chicken Chasni
Post by: loveitspicy on July 15, 2012, 10:15 AM
Guys made these two as an experiment just in case!!!!
Anyhow one with Chicken Tikka and the other with normal marinated precooked chicken – both delicious – enjoyed this type of curry never made it before but will in the future.
Sorry for the pic layered one over the other very quickly – but you get the idea!

Ingredients
Oil
Onion finely chopped - handful
1 tsp. ginger/ garlic
1 tsp. chilli powder
1 tsp. mixed powder
Quarter tsp. salt
1 tsp. colmans mint
1 chef’s spoon ketchup
Base enough to make a curry
Half Chef’s spoon mango pulp
A pinch of orange food colour
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 chef’s spoon evaporated milk
1 chef’s spoon plain yogurt
Precooked Chicken - tikka
Pinch methi
Pinch coriander

Method
Oil in pan warm up
Onion in and salt - translucent

What i would say is the Tikka really came through - far better than the normal precooked chicken - Lovely dish!

This is it for me - YOU GUYS! - i make curry everyday and appreciate all your comments. This is an easy curry to make and it tastes just great.

The Chasni with the Tikka in is the best by far - very very Moorish indeed - the Tikka just lends itself to this recipe - because of the ingredients... with the mint, mango etc i didn't use cream didn't have any left the yogurt and the carnation milk worked a treat.... the lime/lemon juice is a must - its a great curry!

Unclefrank - i used my base as usual - about 8 kilos of sliced onions in a pan, a tbsp. of salt with some oil boiled down 4 sliced carrots and a bunch of coriander tsp. of cinnamon about 4 chefs spoon tomato paste watered down 2-1 a chefs spoon of curry powder a level chefs spoon of  turmeric all topped up with chicken stock made from 2 carcasses in water with some carrots and onions. Then boiled for about 45 mins - cooled for a cople of hours then stick blended quite smooth but with texture - the mixed powder is the same as any on here i guess...



Its that good it may be on sale soon!!!!

best, Rich

Can't wait to try this.

if it tastes half as good as it looks, it'll be a winner.

Thanks for posting Rich

Tried this dish recently and is differently one for my curry book
Obviously for the sweeter palette
I would say its the kind of curry you would make for a group of friends as
a contrast with the hotter ones
Well done Rich for those tasty looking pictures

I've been meaning to try this for a while and I thought that last night would be as good time as any to open up that massive tin of mango pulp I bought on offer at Tesco a couple of months ago!

Very worthwhile indeed! I thoroughly enjoyed this curry and, given that I've now frozen 4 x 175g portions of the leftover mango pulp, I'll be making it again and again.

Thanks for posting the recipe, Rich. :)

Chasni - The Scottish Curry

Strange thing with this one for me,
1. I like Heinz Ketchup
2. I like Kesar Mango Pulp
3. I like Colmans Garden Mint.

Put these three ingredients together in any curry, especially the famous Chasni
and I just cannot get away with the overall taste.

Needless to say, a very popular curry up North, but sadly not on my list of likes.
cheers Chewy

Chasni - The Scottish Curry...but sadly not on my list of likes....

That will explain why I like it, but I think I know what you mean about the ingredients list. It looks a bit bizarre, but strangely, it seems to work. The consistency of the sauce is really nice and the taste is definitely unusual - but not in a bad way! I think I might chop a chilli or two into the next one just to act as a counterpoint to the sweetness of the fruit and the Carnation. :)
