3-4 Potatoes of choice
2-3 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp salt
Optional : 1/2 tsp Turmeric and 1/2 tsp Paprika or red chilli powder
300 gms Chicken
1/4 cup Yogurt
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp tandoori masala
1/2 tsp Garlic powder and Paprika
3-4 tbsp Butter or Desi Ghee
1 thinly sliced onion
1 bay leaf, 1 Cinnamon
3-4 Green Cardamom
1 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp Coriander seeds
4-5 Garlic pods – finely chopped and 2 inch piece ginger
3-4 fresh tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt/paprika
1/2 cup Cream
1/4 cup water
Finishing off: 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
1/2 tsp Dried Fenugreek leaves
Chopped Cilantro and Green onions
1 cup Grated Cheese ( I know I skipped on Cheese Curds and went with regular Mozarella and Cheddar Cheese)
Marinade Chicken for an hour in combination of yogurt and spices.
Wash, peel and thinly slice potatoes and cook them to make fries. I pan fried them but they can also be baked or deep fried. Season them as per your choice. I made golden fries by using some turmeric and red chilli powder. Cook on medium high heat for 7-8 mins.
Once potatoes are done, set them aside.
Next, melt butter. Add onions, bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamom, cumin and coriander seeds. Give a nice mix to spices and add ginger and garlic. Fry for 3-4 mins.
Add tomatoes. Add salt and paprika. Mix well. Let tomatoes become tender and then add this masala in a blender along with some cream and water to form a silky smooth curry.
In the same pan, fry chicken until its sealed. Add curry blend that we’ve made and let chicken cook until no longer raw.
Finish off with dried fenugreek leaves, garam masala, Cilantro and green onions. Top off with 2 tbsp of cream.
In a bowl, layer fries, cheese, chicken and sauce, cilantro, green onions, more cheese, more sauce and enjoy 🙂
