Coconut Chicken By Rob Vincent

Coconut Chicken


No recipe followed I just added as I went along, I patiently created a deep flavoured masala, onions sweated right down to the point of disintergrating but not burnt, plenty of garlic, sliced so finely they just melted into the masala. Enriched with tomatoes for another layer of flavour, chicken added and simmered down until the fillets just melt in your mouth, with a rich and silky sauce, the zingy hit of coriander and the punch of fresh green chillies to balance the richness out.


Left for a while to develop after cooking and the results were amazing, one to cook again!
