#ChickenKoftaCurry - 🍅🌶🍗🥘 .
➰ The nice guys over at @pataksuk sent me some of their paste pots to try it out, I’ve been meaning to make something but had no idea what. This recipes uses the Tikka Masala paste.
Long time followers will know I’m not a simple few ingredients cook, so I didn’t follow the instructions on the pot instead I used it as a quick flavour boost.
It was really tasty! Will definitely be making again.
Meatballs were cooked the night before to make life easier (thanks to mum 😄👍) As always use the recipe as a guideline, if you don’t have some spices just skip it and adjust to how much you are making! .
➰ Meatballs -
1.5kg chicken mince. 1.5 tbsp finely chopped green chillis, 2 large grated onion, 2-3 tbsp finely chopped coriander, spices .
➰ Spices - 2 tsp chilli, 1.5 tsp salt,
1 tsp x pepper, chilli flakes, smoked paprika, ginger powder, garlic powder, onion granules, curry powder, cumin, coriander powder, garam masala powder, turmeric .
➰ Masala - 4 green chillis, loads of finely sliced caramelised onions, 2 large minced garlic cloves, 3 bay leaves, 1 stick of cinnamon, 5 green cardamom, 1 black cardamom, 4 cloves, 1 can of chopped tomatoes, large handful of fresh cherry tomatoes, 1 tbsp of curry powder, 1 tbsp smoked paprika, 2 x Pataks tikka masala paste pots!
finish with fresh coriander leaves and dried fenugreek leaves.
cook the tomatoes low and slow and add water also to make a nice sauce .
TIP: if you find using canned tomatoes too acidic add a pinch of baking powder at the end, makes a big difference .
Note: to make a really nice masala you have to put the time in so maybe save this recipe for a weekend. 🙏
