Chicken Tariwala

Recipe Description:

Despite the Punjab being probably the greatest influence on Indian restaurant cooking in the UK, you’re much more likely to find this classic in Punjabi home kitchens and roadside dhaba restaurants than on the menu of your local curry house. Tariwala is a true curry lover’s curry, embellished with neither butter nor cream, relying purely on the cook’s careful attention to the dish’s base ingredients to draw out their natural richness. The result is a robust, rustic sauce that foregrounds the rich, homely flavours of roast chicken and sauteed onion. It’s nostalgic yet timelessly satisfying, a recipe perfect for rainy days and Sunday lunches alike.
