Tariwala chicken is not seen on restaurant menus very often, but it is the highlight in an Indian’s kitchen and we grew up eating it.
I learnt the recipe from my dad, who was a master at making this dish. In fact, I have fond memories of him cooking a huge batch whenever he’d host a drinks party with his friends, where they would all eat bowls full of it whilst drinking whisky.
The dish worked well then and it most certainly holds its magical appeal today, although my version uses ingredients you tend to have in your pantry as whole spices weren’t readily available when my parents first moved to England.
So give my chicken curry a try – you just might end up creating some happy memories of your own.
