Chicken Bafat Curry
Pumpkin, tomato & butter
Hot, sweet sour dish from the West of India
This is a beautifully fragrant, hot, sweet, sour, salty dish! A really simple-to-do, thick-sauced meal. Perfect with Green Saffron’s soft-tear Naan or vintage basmati rice. Healthy, nutritious and full of flavour, it’s perfect for a cold winter evening’s treat of a curry! (Bafat refers to the style of spice masala)
Serves 4 – 6 people
A wonderfully fragrant, almost sweet, sour type dish from Goa, to the south of India, with a distinct peppery perfume. This region’s cooking is heavily influenced by the Portuguese, so the Vindaloo is more about vinegar (“vin”) and garlic (“alho”) than pure hot, heat. The chillies reflect Goa’s penchant for a little extra kick. If you’d like it a little hotter than we present it here, then simply add some chopped fresh chilli or chilli flakes to dish once it’s cooked, but do try it first!
