Have you tried it with a little more sauce but a thick sauce?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply, I have duly noted your comments and will make the dish as per your posted recipe. As I am making this for the family (4 of us) I might be tempted to roast 2 of the quarters just to do a comparison. If I do, i'll let you know the results, I shall report back either way.

I've just found the Special Jalfrezi video which contains the sauces so no worries on that one. Its been a while since I was last on and there is much to catch up with. I also watched the 2011 Competition video and loved the look of the dish Chef Kohinoor did. How did he get on in the regional finals, is there a topic for it? I love his new approach to cooking. Have some things i'd like to discuss, so i'll drop you a PM.

Cheers for now,

Malc  :)

Hi Chewy what do you do exactly with the milk and lemon, does it curdle etc?

Cheers

Hi Ed
Just drizzle/sprinkle the Milk and Lemon juice onto the dish just before it is ready to serve.
Like a finishing garnish and is common in Bengali Cooking. I don't think I've ever asked why,
but I will ask someone.

Anyway it won't curdle as there's not enough of either. ;)
But if you don't like the idea of the Milk, just leave it out.

cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

Just made this as per the original recipe.
First time I've used my deep fat fryer for chicken as only used for onion bhajis since I bought the fryer.
I'll report back after I have tucked into it tonight.

I used chicken quarters from Asda (£2.69) a little too much for the recipe but I fried the lot for use later.

Always searching for the magic! But then I give up and had a curry instead ;)

Final dish looks just like mine did after the 2nd tasting test thing we did. Not a great fan of the process, deep frying etc, but it was tasty. Probably won't do it again but it is one ticked off the ' to do ' list.
