    Chicken 'Kut-a-Kut' Kebab

    This is actually a Pakastani street food, normally cooked on griddles, so this is a more straight forward concoction, but ends up a nicely tender and spiced dish.

    I've used about 800g of chicken breast diced into .75 inch pieces, couple of cloves of garlic crushed and put in a small bowl with about 200ml water, some finely grated fresh ginger, half a large onion finely chopped, a couple of fresh green chillies finely chopped, half a tin of chopped tomatoes put in a bowl with half a tsp of cayenne pepper and about 200ml of water, couple of tbsp ground cumin mixed with a tsp of ground coriander and a good amount of freshly ground black pepper, a couple of tbsp of natural yoghurt, and about 90g of unsalted butter. You'll need a large lidded non-stick frying pan for this.



    Start by putting a splash of olive oil in the pan over a medium high heat, then add the chicken.



    Stir around until all the pieces become opaque, then add the garlic water. Put the lid on and cook for around 5 minutes, occasionally giving a stir, and until there's just a couple of tbsps of water left.



    Then add the onion, chilli, ginger mixture and stir for about 2 minutes



    Next, add the tomato combination, cover and cook for a further 5 minutes, again occasionally lifting the lid and stirring.



    Next in is the butter, cover and cook for a further 2 minutes.



    Take the lid off and give a good stir, then add the yoghurt, stirring until it's all absorbed, before adding the cumin/coriander/pepper. Continue cooking uncovered for a further minute. Give it a good squeeze of lemon juice and sprinkle with chopped fresh coriander to serve.

    Reckon 4 to 6, depending on what you're going to have with it.

    OK. Thanks - the 90 grams butter made me pause at first!

    This looks like chicken varuval in Chettinad cooking.

    Is it the same thing, PAG?

    Similar, though the kebab is more street food, and the Varuval has more heat.
