Chicken Chettinad

Recipe Description:

Aged just 29, Alfred Prasad became head chef of Tamarind in London, achieving a Michelin star that he maintained for 13 years. His light, seasonal cooking is inspired by childhood memories of exploring India with his parents, tasting the varied delights of India’s regional cuisines. His food philosophy of ‘health, heritage and happiness’ merges creativity and scientific precision, enhancing the essential flavours of fresh ingredients with characteristic subtlety. Here, Alfred makes chicken thigh sing with the same eclectic flavours that wealthy ‘Chettiar’ spice traders first brought to their rural corner of South India centuries ago.
