This recipe is from the Basic Cookbook and it was one of the first things we made. I discussed our first attempt in this post. It was a winner so we made it again tonight 3 February 2017.
Last time we didn’t quite have enough chicken and found there to be a lot of sauce. So this time, instead of reducing the water as I had planned, I added a bit more chicken – I used 950 g instead of the 750 g in the recipe. It was really close to the MAX mark on the bowl, but just scraped in under.
I added an extra 5 minutes to the cooking time because of the extra chicken and also had the simmering basket on top for that last 5 mins to try to reduce the sauce again.
Oh and I used about a teaspoon of the veggie stock paste instead of salt. I added half a teaspoon of chilli powder as that was just right last time.
A winner again. Hubby wasn’t home last time I made this, and he really enjoyed it.
There is plenty of sauce left over and enough chicken in that sauce for another meal, so will be freezing it when it cools.
There is still a heck of a lot of sauce. Loads. I moved the chicken to the bottom of this container so you get an idea of how much sauce there is – remember this is after we all ate it for dinner.
I am not sure about reducing the water as it needs liquid to cook in. Maybe I’ll just do simmering basket only for the cooking phase next time. Still, delicious and loving using the garam masala I made last time too. So good using what you’ve made in meals!
Will we make it again?
Yes! I think it’ll be a regular meal in our house. Yum.
