Balti Chicken - Cheap Recipe With An Unusual Taste

I love the sauce in this recipe - it has an exquisite taste. 

The original recipe that this was adapted from has poppy seeds in it too but I dislike using them as they get in between your teeth and don't look too glamorous, especially if you have visitors for dinner.  It is a very cheap and easy recipe for when you have guests over.

Balti Chicken served with Potato Wedges and salad

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons tomato sauce
1/3 teaspoon chilli sauce (more if your kids will eat hot food)
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon garlic
1 and 1/2 tablespoons coconut
1 and 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoons ground coriander seeds
500 gm (1 pound) chicken thigh fillets
 

 

Method:

Mix the first eleven ingredients together.  Slice the chicken thinly and marinate in the sauce for one hour.

Heat oil in your wok and tip in the chicken and the marinade sauce.  Cook gently and serve with cooked vegetables or your favourite Chinese stir fry vegetables and rice noodles.

Serves 4.
 

 

Notes:

This is also delicious using other meats such as lean, stir fry beef or lamb.  If you use a meat that needs a longer cooking time then you will need to increase the amount of water used in the recipe.
