C46 Chicken Oriya

This has been adjusted from a traditional recipe from the Orissa region of India, where mustard oil is commonly used. In Orissa State, the Oriya constitute the regional ethnic group, speaking the Oriya language and professing the Hindu religion (encyclopedia.com). This has been adjusted for a single portion with some ingredient changes and cooked in a BIR (British Indian Restaurant) style. A delicious MEDIUM curry.

Notes

(1) Mustard oil can be purchased at some supermarkets and any Asian outlet. The European Commission insists that mustard oil be labelled 'For External Use Only', but it has been used by millions in India for many years with apparently no ill effects. The pictures show 3 different brands, Pride, KTC and East End. The Pride is over 99% rapeseed oil the rest being mustard oil and mustard flavouring. The KTC is lighter in colour than the East End but both are 100% mustard oil. The East End brand has a very potent mustard flavour and so if you are going to use mustard oil the KTC is probably more suited to the British palate, but the choice whether to use it at all and which you choose must be your own. Strictly speaking due to the EC directive the use of mustard oil as a food product has to be discouraged.
(2) Dilute the c46 base sauce with 100 ml of water and warm before use. Any other base sauce can be used, diluted, or not, as the base sauce requires.
