Chicken Tikka Shahee
« on: September 30, 2016, 12:16 PM »
Hi,

Im sorry if this has already been requested, but i can't seem to find it.

I am looking for a recipe for a BIR Chicken Tikka Shahee, it is my other halves favourite dish from our local and i was hoping to find a recipe to replicate this for him. The dish is described as Chicken Tikka with minced Lamb & spices (medium/hot).

If anyone has any ideas that would be great!

Thanks
Jen

What's that bowl of pink stuff at 5:50...some sort of kebab mix?

Im not sure, it doesn't say on the video- certain looks that way though!

I made the Shahee last night - I was pleased but the mince was too 'lamb' for me , not like our local. As daft as that sounds... Im usually a hater of lamb so much so the smell of it cooking knocks me sick. However, i can eat the Shahee from the local fine as it doesn't have the distinct lamb taste- I wonder if it is prepared differently?

I very much fear that it doesn't smell of lamb because it has little or no lamb in it.  Beef mince (or worse) is much cheaper than lamb mince, and it is not unknown for restaurants to substitute it.  A well-known BIR in Hildenborough most certainly had done so on the one and only occasion that we went there -- never again, for obvious reasons.

I have to agree with Phil. If it doesn't taste like lamb it's because there's little lamb in it which sort of negates the point of making it in the first place. Most of the lamb lovers on the forum want more of that lamb flavour and that's often harder to emulate.

Thanks Gents,

I wasn't sure if it was something to do with the prep of the lamb that meant it hadn't the string taste- to be perfectly honest i'd be quite happy to use beef mince (due my dislike of lamb) but wanted to try and keep it 'authentic'.

Hey
Yeah not too far then-  it turned out well but the lamb still had the 'lamb' taste so I think I will boil next time. I can usually at lamb mince from the takeaway but still tasted too strong of lamb for me!
