Eastern Tandoori Chicken Patala
« on: November 29, 2015, 08:01 PM »
An unfamiliar dish to many I am guessing, but found regularly on the menus of a growing number of curry houses now found across Southern Ireland. It most likely has its roots here and probably goes by a different name and could easily be related to butter or makhani chicken or even the Punjabi masala.  The menu descriptions:

Edited to infill missing recipe per this post; thanks Bob-A-Job.

Ingredients:

- Portion of cooked Chicken Tikka
- 350 ml portion of heated curry base
- 2 Tbsp Oil
- 2 knobs of butter (each approx 1 Tbsp when melted)
- Rounded Tbsp finely chopped Onion
- 2 Tsp Garlic (ginger) paste
- 0.5 Tsp Meethi leaves
- 0.25 Tsp Salt
- 2 Tsp Tandoori Masala powder
- 1 Tsp Mix powder
- 0.5 Tsp Chilli powder or to taste
- 1 Tbsp Tomato paste already diluted 1 part paste to 2 parts water
- 2 rounded Tbsp ground Almond (or Almond powder)
- 1 level Tsp of Coconut powder or dessicated coconut
- 1.5 Tsp Sugar
- 2 Tsp Tomato Ketchup
- 1 Tsp Lemon juice
- Half a Tomato cut into quarters

Method:

- Add 2 chef spoons of the heated curry base and stir in well and fry for 30 to 45 seconds
- Add half of the remaining curry gravy, almond and coconut powders followed by the sugar
- Give the pan a good stir ensuring all ingredients are well mixed
- Add the chicken tikka and stir
- Leave for 3 to 4 minutes to cook, checking occasionally, do not let it burn
- Add the remaining curry gravy, tomato ketchup, tomato quarters, lemon juice, stir and cook for 2 minutes
- Add the cream and food colouring and stir through the curry
- Reduce heat and leave to thicken to a normal curry consistency
- Add the coriander stirring it through the curry
- Add the knob of butter folding it in to the curry until it has melted
- Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh coriander

I'll give this a shot, Dave. Half-a-tsp of chilli powder is my good lady wife's limit, so this dish should go down well. If its a hit, I could even see myself replacing the ketchup and cream with Tamerina and Chewy's red sauce. And some extra chilli powder! :)

Looks great CH, it does indeed have similarities with the Punjabi Masala served in Scotland, especially with the emphasis on tomato. However the coconut, butter and cream take it away from the PJM and into Murgh Makhani territory.

Really fancy trying this one, Dave. Are you sure about the three Tbsp of almonds? Seems like a lot for one portion :)

Agree with SL - Punjabi Masala is a much spicier dish.
