Hi Ray/Bob
I've ordered a Chicken Chatt before and was served a chilled Chicken Salad
sprinkled with Chatt Masala powder, which was good but quite unusual.

A cooked Chicken Chatt is a mini Bhuna Chicken with Chatt Masala seasoning and the main spice hit in the masala is the Black Salt.

Some good Restaurants do a pan of small chopped precooked Chicken which is especially for starters like Chicken Chatt and Bhuna Chicken on Puri.
Depending how they precook the Chicken, this adds to the final taste of the Chatt.

How I cook a Chicken Chatt.
Do a mini Bhuna, Half the ingredients of a normal Bhuna.

1. Sweat down Chopped Onion and G.Capsicum mix (Service Onions)
2. A touch G&G, cook out
3. A touch of the usual, Tomato Puree dilute, Mixed powder, Kashmiri Chilli Powder and 1tsp of Chatt Masala. cook out
4. Add the small chopped precooked Chicken pieces and a little of the stock. heat through for a minute.
5. Add a Chefs spoon of curry base, a fresh chilli chopped and a pinch of chopped coriander. Heat through for a minute or until it all becomes semi/dry.
6. Serve and garnish with sliced Tomato, Cucumber an a wedge of Lemon, not forgetting a little dusting of Chatt Masala.

I like this with a deep fried Puri or I do like Mission Deli Wraps, heated/toasted through on my Tawa with an egg wash and coriander.
I did do a video of this recipe, I'll have to upload it somewhere, I just don't like YouTube.

cheers Chewy

Chewy you are the man!!

This is what I have had before or very similar without the sprinkling of chaat masala on top. I like your idea too of the mission deli wraps :)

Thanks very much for your input, much appreciated :)

This is the one I cooked over the weekend......



In fact it was aloo chat not chicken chat but I would guess restaurants use the same basic recipe and swap between ingredients.Mine was pretty much the same as Chewytikka's,although my version was missing the small slithers of cucumber I always find in my local T/A's version.I often order it instead of a bombay aloo,it has a wonderful savoury flavour.I do urge you to seek out some chat massala though,it does give the dish a terrific flavour,this is the one I use...

Be careful though as the chaat massala can be quite salty in itself so add more salt to the dish sparingly.

Hi Bob/Ray/JB
LoL  ;D It's like a Shan product group test ;D

Uploaded my Chicken Chatt video, more or less the same as I've posted here
just using a bit more garabi and working it.

https://vimeo.com/44239169
Didn't have the time to do the usual motion graphics, but you'll get the idea.

cheers Chewy


Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol
