Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2328 - Chicken Pathia, Turmeric Rice & Naan

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Peel and finely chop the brown onion[s]garlic and ginger

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once the pan is hot, add the chopped onion with a generous pinch of salt and cook for 6-8 min or until softened

2 2328 - Chicken Pathia, Turmeric Rice & Naan

Meanwhile, heat a pot (with a matching lid) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the cumin seeds and cook for 1-2 min or until sizzling

Once the cumin seeds start to sizzle, carefully add the basmati rice and stir it all together

3 2328 - Chicken Pathia, Turmeric Rice & Naan

Add the turmeric and 250ml [500ml] cold water with a pinch of salt to the pot and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving – this is your turmeric rice

Boil half a kettle

4 2328 - Chicken Pathia, Turmeric Rice & Naan

While the rice is cooking, chop the chicken thighs into large, bite-sized pieces

5 2328 - Chicken Pathia, Turmeric Rice & Naan

Once the onions are softened, add the chopped ginger and garlic and cook for 1-2 min further or until fragrant

Once fragrant, add the ground cumin, curry powder and cayenne (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) with the tomato paste and stir it all together

Tip: add a little more vegetable oil if the pan's looking a little dry

6 2328 - Chicken Pathia, Turmeric Rice & Naan

Add the tamarind paste with 150ml [250ml] boiled water and 2 tsp [4 tsp] sugar

Give everything a good mix up, then add the diced chicken thighs and cook for 8-10 min or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!) - this is your chicken pathia

7 2328 - Chicken Pathia, Turmeric Rice & Naan

When the chicken is almost cooked, add the coriander mini naans to a baking tray

Put the tray in the oven for 3 min or until the bread is hot

Tip: For a little extra indulgence, butter the hot naan once it's out of the oven

Meanwhile, chop the coriander roughly
