Title: Chicken Tikka Shahee
Post by: JennyLou90 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!

All the curry houses I know use mutton, not lamb.

Hi Jen

Seriously huge difference. You'll need to try it.  Much leaner than lamb and is bench mark for the majority of BIR keema dishes.  It's also cheaper. Worth adding a pinch of crushed green cardomon/mace to the pre-cook.

Would i get this from a butcher? There isn't any 'local', I haven't seen ay at the supermarket but saying that I don't tend to look as we get a lot of chicken and we pre order from a wholesale butchers.
This is definitely worth trying though if I can get hold of it!

Your curry looks good in the pan Jen,  ;)

Shahi is a medium saucy finished dish, I would use a bit more base gravy
while cooking and also I would use Beef mince, just like
they do in most BIR and Take Away kitchens. (Bangladeshi owned)

You don

Hi CW!

Thank you very much- unfortunately the other half wasn't ready so was definitely over cooked so needed more base gravy as you mentioned, but didn't have any left! Haha.

You're right, I need to get the Kashmiri chilli powder and the marinades. I will put them on my shopping list! I'm presuming you wouldn't put the mince in the processor, just the spices/marinade?

That recipe is great though thank you! My colleagues have put an order in the next time we are on nights so I will have time to practise with this.

I'm going to need another Recipe book to put them all in.

You need to tell your other half that when then the curry is ready he/she has to come and get it (if it's safe to do so).

Hi Jen
No, mix and blend the mince and flavouring altogether.
When you buy mince at the supermarket, butchers etc

Thanks :) I did think their mince seems a lot finer.

Ive just had a go at your Chicken Tikka marinade as I want to make a CTM tomorrow when Grandparents are here but couldn't find all the pastes :( could only find the tandoori one. Any ideas? I do live near a costco but i don't remember seeing an awful lot of spices their tbh other than the usual big tubs of swartz type.

Ive got pretty much all the spices I need now (and slowly transferring them into my swartz containers!) but the marinades/pastes Im having trouble getting hold of.

Think Ill have another stab at the shahee next week...or maybe when i get bored this week!!

You are lucky to have found tandoori paste as I can't find it anywhere, I believe that I saw on here previously that it had disappeared from the shelves and have looked everywhere locally, which shop did you buy it from please?
