Chicken Vindaloo

Ingredients


2   lbs   Chicken pieces
3   cloves   Garlic
2 ?   cm   Root ginger
3   tbls   White wine vinegar
1   tbls   Treacle
1   tsp   Haldi
2      Chillis
?   tsp   Fenugreek seeds
1   tsp   Mustard seeds
1   tbls   Coriander seeds
1   tsp   Jeera seeds
1   pinch   Asafoetida
?   tsp   Chilli powder
1   lb   Small potatoes
6   tbls   Mustard oil
4?    Minced onions
3?    Tomatoes
2   tbls   Fresh coriander
2   tsp   Salt

Preparation[/size]

1 Blend garlic, ginger, wine vinegar, treacle, turmeric and chillis to a paste
2 Add salt, ground fenugreek, mustard, coriander and jeera seeds
3 Rub paste into chicken and leave for 3 hours
4 Cut potatoes into bite sized pieces and boil until just tender
5 Fry the onions until golden, then add asafoetida
6 Add de-seeded and chopped tomatoes and fry until oil surfaces
7 Add the chicken and marinade and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally
8 Cover and simmer for a further 10 minutes
9 Add potatoes and cook until chicken is tender – about 10 minutes


Notes[/size]
This is not truly authentic for two reasons:

1) The original dish was made with pork
2) It did not contain potatoes.

Of course, thie recipe is easily modified to remove these anomalies.

I've made this quite a few times, and it's quite popular.

It certainly does not need to be made hot.

I'm afraid I don't know.

It was in a recipe I obtained whilst in India and it seems to be very popular with people for whom I've made it - the treacle does definitely add to the flavour without making it actually taste of treacle.

Hi Muttley, he did ask this question 3 years ago, so I suspect he may have got bored waiting for the answer or quite possibly may even be dead by now  ;)

Yes, my answering was intended to be slightly surreal.  :)
