This is one of my favourite dishes and is quite versatile as to how much of each ingredient you can use.

6 pieces of pre cooked chicken tikka
6 pineapple chunks & a tblsp of the juice

pinch of chill flakes
1/2 tsp kashmiri chilli powder

1 tsp paprika
2 tsps of sugar

Thanks for this recipe madpower, I will try it some time. Think I'll leave out the pineapple though.

Totally agree.... I can't seem to get past a Patia or Dhansak at the moment.

I e always struggled with knowing the correct proportions of lemon juice and sugar for a dhansak. Guess I gave up on it too soon

I do love a dansak. In fact I love lentils. Now I feel hungry. I am definitely in the "add a bit of pineapple" club. Just adds a little something different. :-)
