Saada Paratha

2 cups whole-wheat flour
Water to knead the dough
1/2 cup ghee
Dry flour for dusting
Knead the flour with water into a soft pliable dough. Cover the dough and leave to rest for at least 30 minutes.
Break dough into 8 pieces, and shape each into a round, smooth ball, using a dusting of flour if it sticks.
Take a ball, and using a rolling pin, roll it into a round.
Smear the surface of the round with a little ghee, fold in half, smear the surface with ghee again, and make another fold from corner to corner, thus making a triangle.
Roll the triangle as thin as you can with a light hand. Repeat with the rest of the pieces, keeping the rolled paranthas covered, while you work on the rest of the dough.
With enough practice, you will be able to work fast enough to roll one and fry the other at the same time.
Heat the griddle till very hot. Place a parantha on it and lower the heat a bit.
When the edges start lifting slightly, make a trail of ghee along the outer edge of the parantha, so that some ghee trickles under it.
When underside is golden brown, smear some ghee on uncooked surface, increase heat and turn the parantha over.
Lower heat and cook on the other side. Serve hot

1 tsp ginger puree
1 tbsp oil
3 tbsp water
2 Chicken breasts cut into large cubes

Main Recipe
1 tbsp butter or ghee
3 tbsp oil

Whole Spices
2 green cardamom pods cracked
4 cloves
1 x 2 inch piece of cassia bark

Mixed Spices
1 tsp spice mix
1 tsp curry powder
¼ tsp Kashmiri Mirch
½ tsp Methi leaves (grind finely between your fingers)

1 tbsp ground Cashews
1 tbsp ground Almonds
3 tbsp coconut milk powder
150ml double cream
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp tomato puree
Salt to taste
A handful of sultanas
A handful of toasted Almond flakes
200ml of base sauce
A bunch of freshly chopped coriander
Remove the chicken from the marinade and scrape off as much as you can, leaving the marinade in a bowl.
Mix the coconut powder, sugar and cream together in a jug, add some milk if it becomes a little thick.
Heat a pan to a relatively high heat, add a little oil, then add the chicken and seal. Remove the chicken from the pan and set to one side.
Reduce the heat to low and add the butter and the oil to the pan and the whole spices, cook for around 2 minutes until you can smell the aroma coming from the whole spices, add the mixed spices, stir into the oil and cook for about a minute, then add the ground nuts and mix into a paste. Keep stirring so not to let it burn.
Stir in the tomato puree and 100ml of the base sauce and put the heat up to medium. Let the base sauce cook a little then add the other 100ml of base.
Cook for about a minute, then add the remaining marinade that was kept aside, plus the coconut and cream mixture, and stir in. This should now provide a wonderful creamy nutty sauce.
