Chicken tandoori, fortunately we get all the ingredients, including deggi mirch and katsuri methi, here in Nottingham.

Hari will probably not approve of us adding red food colour, but we like it that way 😂

It was accompanied by Hari’s recipe for saag aloo and the excellent Shana paratha.

Thanks Hari! We used ‘East End’ brand which we bought from our local Pak Foods 😂

Whatever...your recipe was delicious

@howard_broadwell deggi mirch can sometimes be a mixture but you are right in that it’s added for colour and warmth so yes should give the colour. I think
It’s more of a red pepper to get the colour. And in a similar way some Kashmiri chilli brands aren’t as vibrant as others. My preference is the fudco Kashmiri brand but a good deggi works too. I just find they vary so much from brand to brand

@Hari Ghotra I thought deggi mirch and Kashmiri chilli powder were one and the same. Am I wrong?

Just fantastic - next time try Kashmiri chilli powder to get the colour but no harm in adding food colouring. It’s all about what you like!
