Kushi Chicken Pathia
« on: February 25, 2010, 08:08 PM »
This recipe comes from the "Authentic Balti Curry" cookbook ISBN 141205592 - X

Per portion:

2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp Kushi spice http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=1547.0
3/4 tsp chilli powder
2 tsp sugar
Juice of half a lemon
1 tomato, diced
A portion of pre-cooked chicken http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=4293.0
125ml or more kushi base sauce http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=4283.0
Fresh coriander leaves to garnish

Gently heat the vegetable oil in the pan

Add the garlic and onion, and stir until it starts to go golden brown.  (If it goes completely brown, it won't give the right flavour)

Remove from the heat, and immediatley add the kushi spice and chilli powder, stirring constantly.

Add the sugar, lemon juice and tomato.  Stir

Return to a low heat and add the pre-cooked chicken

Next, add the kushi base sauce and bring to the boil.

Simmer for 2 minutes

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves, and serve.

Gezh,

Are you going to make the base, spice mix and precooked chicken as well?

Anyone know how this recipe compares to UB's recipe? UB's is the pinnacle for me so far and I don't want to go to the trouble of making a base, spice mix, pre-cooking etc if it's not going to be as good :-\

Domi,

I honestly don't know how this would compare to UB's recipe having never tried his.

With that said, I'm not a Pathia fan either but, i did enjoy this.  It's very 'Balti' because of the little base used and the whole spices in the base also make it Balti for me!

Go on, give it a go, it's got to be better than breastfeedin piggies :P

Talking of UB where is he? I noticed he's dropped off the mods list!

You still with us UB?

Hi Ray. Yes and no... I'm going to use your suggested spice mix, as I have everything on hand. Chicken, I'm going to make chicken tikka, marinading it tonight, as chicken tikka pathia is my fave. Base, I'm afriad I always just use whatever I have on hand, which at this moment is CA's.

I'm not experienced enough in this yet to understand the difference that different bases can make, for me it's more what you put into the final cook.

The UB recipe is good, though you have to be really careful with the tamarind paste as twice now I've overdone the mixture. The problem is the recipe makes out that you have to make a whole load of the pathia mix, where in reality you only need a little bit, and there's little value in making a load of it. This recipe doesn't have a sour element, but it still looks great.
