Dish description

Our guest chef recipe today is from Shah Malek who is the chef director of Rivaaz Lymington and Thali Ho Indian Kitchen.

He describes this Chicken Madras recipe as “a classic and delicious Indian restaurant curry. The chicken madras in my opinion is the most underrated curry on the menu, however, it’s full of flavour and is always my personal “go to” comfort curry. It’s packed with flavour and that slight citrus burst from the lemon juice just finishes it off beautifully. ”

There is no base gravy in this recipe just blitzed chopped tomatoes for the sauce.
