Hi Ray/BobI've ordered a Chicken Chatt before and was served a chilled Chicken Saladsprinkled with Chatt Masala powder, which was good but quite unusual.A cooked Chicken Chatt is a mini Bhuna Chicken with Chatt Masala seasoning and the main spice hit in the masala is the Black Salt.Some good Restaurants do a pan of small chopped precooked Chicken which is especially for starters like Chicken Chatt and Bhuna Chicken on Puri.Depending how they precook the Chicken, this adds to the final taste of the Chatt.How I cook a Chicken Chatt.Do a mini Bhuna, Half the ingredients of a normal Bhuna.1. Sweat down Chopped Onion and G.Capsicum mix (Service Onions)2. A touch G&G, cook out3. A touch of the usual, Tomato Puree dilute, Mixed powder, Kashmiri Chilli Powder and 1tsp of Chatt Masala. cook out4. Add the small chopped precooked Chicken pieces and a little of the stock. heat through for a minute.5. Add a Chefs spoon of curry base, a fresh chilli chopped and a pinch of chopped coriander. Heat through for a minute or until it all becomes semi/dry.6. Serve and garnish with sliced Tomato, Cucumber an a wedge of Lemon, not forgetting a little dusting of Chatt Masala.I like this with a deep fried Puri or I do like Mission Deli Wraps, heated/toasted through on my Tawa with an egg wash and coriander.I did do a video of this recipe, I'll have to upload it somewhere, I just don't like YouTube.cheers Chewy

This is the one I cooked over the weekend......In fact it was aloo chat not chicken chat but I would guess restaurants use the same basic recipe and swap between ingredients.Mine was pretty much the same as Chewytikka's,although my version was missing the small slithers of cucumber I always find in my local T/A's version.I often order it instead of a bombay aloo,it has a wonderful savoury flavour.I do urge you to seek out some chat massala though,it does give the dish a terrific flavour,this is the one I use... http://www.spicesofindia.co.uk/acatalog/Indian-Food-Shan-Chaat-Masala.htmlBe careful though as the chaat massala can be quite salty in itself so add more salt to the dish sparingly.
Hi Bob/Ray/JBLoL ;D It's like a Shan product group test ;DUploaded my Chicken Chatt video, more or less the same as I've posted herejust using a bit more garabi and working it.Didn't have the time to do the usual motion graphics, but you'll get the idea.cheers Chewy
