How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • There’s a lot of flavour packed into this curry. It begins with marinating the chicken overnight in yoghurt, ginger, garlic, lemon juice and a careful blend of spices from our Spice Room.
  • We use a traditional Indian cooking technique for the sauce, making a base from garlic, onion, curry leaves, tomatoes and a dazzling array of spices, which is cooked for around 50 minutes to avoid that raw spice taste you can find in pre-prepared Indian dishes.
  • Then we add red lentils and finish with natural yogurt, tamarind paste, lemon juice, and chopped coriander.

What Is Bhunaring?

  • 'Bhunaring' is what we do at COOK for the first stage in making all of our tasty Indian curries.
  • We begin by shallow frying chopped garlic until golden brown, giving it a lovely nutty flavour. Then we add diced or sliced onions, season and cook until soft.
  • In go the ground spices (depending on the curry) and chopped tomatoes, which stop the dry spices sticking to the pan. We cook on a low-to-medium heat for 45-60 minutes until the base has thickened considerably and the oil has come to the top. Bhunaring complete!
  • We then build on this base and the sauce takes on its own personality for each of the different curries.
