Recipe for Dhaba Chicken Karahi

Ingredients

  • 4 tbs butter
  • 4 tbs cooking oil
  • 2lb chicken cut into 3 inch pieces
  • 1 tbs freshly crushed garlic
  • 1 tbs freshly crushed ginger
  • 1½ lb finely chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1½ tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 2 tsp dry coarsely ground coriander
  • 2 tsp coarsely ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 cup low fat yogurt (beaten with a fork)
  • 2 tbs dry methi (fenugreek)
  • 1 tbs finely sliced (or grated) fresh garlic
  • 6 tbs freshly sliced green coriander
  • 3 sliced jalapenos (optional)

Cooking Directions

In a small bowl add the salt, dry coriander, cumin, ground black pepper, chillie flakes and garam masala – dry masala mixture.

Wash the chicken pieces in cold water and drain.

Place the butter and oil in a non-stick pan, when butter melts add half the chicken pieces and fry on full heat until chicken turns a golden

brown, remove into a dish, fry the second half of the chicken and remove.

In the remaining oil and butter mixture, add ginger and garlic fry for two minutes, then add the tomatoes, and half the dry masala mixture.

Mix well and add a cup of water, cook covered until the liquids from the mixture dry up and the mixture is bhuned (oil separates). Keep stirring from time to time so mixture doesn''t stick.

Add chicken and stir in yoghurt, cook on medium heat and bhun again.

Add the remaining dry masala mixture (add an extra 1 tsp red chillie flakes and 1 tsp ground black pepper for a hotter dish!)

Add 2 tbs dry methi (fenugreek) and the freshly sliced garlic (YES this is unusual!).

Mix well, cooked covered for 5 mins on very low heat, add the thinly sliced ginger, garnish with freshly sliced green coriander and fresh jalapenos.
