Equipment

  • Pan
  • Knife and chopping board

Ingredients
  

  • 450 grams Diced chicken breast
  • Loyd Grossman Limited Edition Mint Masala
  • 1 medium-sized red onion
  • 2 tsp Umami paste
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 2 Dried Kashmiri red chillies
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp Butter for the naans
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 2 Sprays Oil for greasing the griddle pan
  • 1 Boiled egg
  • 1/2 Red onion sliced lengthwise to serve with the naan

Instructions
 

  • Wash and cut the chicken breasts into cubes
  • Coat the chicken with 300 gm of the Lloyd Grossman Limited Edition Mint Masala for about 30 minutes
  • The yoghurt in the Mint Masala speeds up the way the spices are absorbed into the chicken
  • Chop the red onion fine
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan and when it is hot add the bay leaves and red chillies and sauté till the bay leaf begins to change colour, then add the onions.
  • Sauté the onions till they turn pink and reduce
  • Then add some of the umami paste and 2 large tbsp of the Lloyd Grossman Limited Edition Mint Masala gravy sauce and sauté for 2 minutes on a low flame
  • Keep stirring to ensure the onion does not burn. Season with salt
  • Take off the flame and set aside
  • After 30 minutes heat the griddle pan till it’s very hot and place on medium heat.
  • Spray some oil onto the griddle pan, it will sizzle and smoke
  • Drop the marinated chicken cubes on the pan
  • 'Bruise' the chicken cubes on the pan till they are grilled, flip and grill on the other side.
  • Repeat until chicken cooks through
  • Ensure chicken pieces are not too large as they will remain raw in the middle
  • Once cooked add them into the sautéed onion thick gravy sauce
  • Mix well and sauté on a very low flame for half a minute
  • To serve heat some butter on a large pan and heat the naan till they are soft and buttery
  • Transfer the Minty chicken kadhai into the shiny balti serving dish and place the halved boiled egg on top
