I did it!!!! I cooked an indian style curry that made the cut, it was really delicious and tasted like an authentic dish. It wasn't like the butter chicken you would get in a food court that is very creamy and not much flavour, i think it was a less westernised version!?!. As the sauce cooked you could recognise the aroma, it was spicy and the flavours were quite intense.
I found the recipe on ecurry. The chicken is marinated overnight in a yoghurty spice mixture and then cooked on the griddle pan to enhance all the flavours.
The sauce is cooked separately and is made up of a few different spices with pureed tomatoes (i used passata) being the main ingredient. The last stage is to put the cooked chicken in the sauce and simmer, a little cream and garam masala are added right at the end.
I was really pleased, it was so delicious and tasted like a complete dish.
