Has anyone tried anything like this?  The fried onion/cashew paste looks proper.

I haven't tried any dishes yet but I've been watching a few of the videos on this channel over the last few weeks. They have all looked pretty good and this one is no exception. It ticks all the boxes doesn't it?  I might have to give it try.

It looks dangerously close to a korma so I wouldn't go near it. But if korma's your thing and you like it spiced up, then this will probably not disappoint.

By all accounts then, I should not be disappointed. I agree with your assessment of it being "spiced up", and will need to modify for family enjoyment (as usual).

I’ve been making this. It’s absolutely delicious. As in ABSOLUTELY delicious. Can share my recipe with you if you want. I put it together after lots of research into the dish.

Please do Floydmeddler! (Great username by the way-the early 70s albums are well underrated, especially AHM, More and OBC.)

Did you spice it up too?

Well spotted Onions! Not many people pick up on it. Just the cool ones!  :cool:

Here is the recipe I put together. My wife and I LOVED it. The cashew and charred onion paste is the secret weapon.

I ended up adding precooked chicken tikka instead of raw thighs.


Chicken Changezi x 2

Ingredients

Desi Ghee = 50 g
2 Onions (cut into thin slices)
Garlic (2 tablespoon)
Ginger (1 tablespoon)
Cumin seeds ground (2 tsp)
Coriander seeds ground (2 tsp)
Black pepper ground (1/2 tsp)
Turmeric (1/2 tsp)
4 dried Kashmiri chillies powdered (no seeds)
Dried Methi (2 tsp)
2 Tomatoes (whizzed then passed through sieve)
Salt ( 1/2 tsp)
Lemon juice (2 tsp)
Chicken (4 thighs cut each into 3 pieces)
20g cashew nuts
Yogurt (60 g)
Cream (60g)
Garam masala (1/2 tsp)

Method
Prep beforehand:
Fry onions slowly until dark brown / some charred. Remove with a slotted spoon. Whizz half with the cashew nuts + 300ml water. Sit aside

1.   Heat ghee
2.   Add garlic and ginger– fry until rawness is cooked out. 15 seconds
3.   Add cumin, coriander, black pepper, turmeric, Kashmiri powder, methi. 15 seconds.
4.   Add sieved tomatoes – cook out rawness and allow to reduce/sweeten
5.   Add charred onions, cashew and onion puree, salt and 200ml water
6.   Add chicken – stir well. Put lid on pan for 10 mins
7.   Add yogurt and lemon juice – stir well – 1 min
8.   Add cream and garam masala.
9.   Reduce to desired consistency
10.   garnish with coriander

This sounds dead originial, and probably worth making the curry just to try it! Thanks for going to that trouble, FM.
