Cooking a Chicken Pathia
« on: July 10, 2016, 10:18 PM »
Hi Guys

Been a bit of a holy grail of mine, ever since an amazing experience at the (now closed) Taj Mahal in Oxford.  This recipe has been over twenty years in the making, so hopefully you will give it a go....

Cooking a Pathia:  2 portions

This is all done over the HIGHEST heat possible:

To a Wok or Ali Pan add about a chef spoon of oil
Then, garlic/ginger or just garlic about 2 tspn; about 1/2 to 1 tspn Methi
Cook until just starting to change colour, then add

Mixture 1:
1 chef spoon tomato puree; one chef spoon mix powder; 1/2 tspn salt; 1-2 tspn chilli powder (to taste), I find about 1 1/2 to be right); 1/4 tspn garam masala; one ladle (150 ml) base gravy.
Cook until reduced right down, stir to make sure it does not stick

Add precooked chicken-about 400g, depending on how hungry you are.  Stir until coated with the spices, then add:

Mixture 2:
Juice of one lemon; chef spoon sugar; chef spoon coconut powder; chef spoon fresh coriander, including stalks; ripe fresh tomato-four quarters. 

Then add a ladle of base sauce reduce, then repeat.  Add more sauce if necessary, it is just a matter of getting the consistency/flavour you are happy with.  I find about 450ml of gravy, reduced down should be okay depending on what your starting consistency of the gravy was.
Add about another Tbspn coriander to garnish/finish the dish.

I find that adding mixed ingredients like this takes a lot of stress out of cooking, and produces great results for the home cook.

The base gravy I have been using is JBs.  It may be my own take on it?  If anyone is interested I can post exactly how I cook it.  The results are amazing.

Cheers

RS

Hi all
Don't know why the forum software does this but, it is meant to be one HALF tspn salt and one QUARTER tspn Garam Masala.

Cheers

You should be in time to correct it retrospectively.  In case you have difficulty entering the special characters correctly, I repeat the affected text below :

Against your first post, you will see, top-right, two options :  "Quote" and "Modify".  If you click "Modify", you will be taken into the forum editor with the text of your original message already entered.  You can then replace either the question marks individually, or the whole sentence, using copy-and-paste from my reply.

** Phil.

Okay, thanks Phil, think it is fixed.  But according to your email, there are loads of other errors that I cannot see?  Or was it just an attempt at sarcasm for some unknown reason?

No other errors that I am aware of, RS, and certainly no attempt at sarcasm on my part.  My reply was a genuine and sincere attempt to help a fellow forum member.  You reported that the quarter and half symbols were not displaying correctly (which often occurs -- I have no idea what causes it) so I replaced the offending symbols with the correct Unicode ones and sent the corrected text back as a part of my reply.  That was all.
