C46 Chicken Piri Piri

This is a traditional Goan curry brought from Mozambique by the Portuguese. Some restaurants will use green chilli and green pepper and there does not appear to be any standard recipe for this as each restaurant obviously has its own 'take' on the traditional Goan dish. This recipe does not use the 'normal' pre-cooked chicken that is used in most other curries but is specially prepared to provide a different flavour profile. You will find it on the occasional restaurant menu and can be called piri piri, pili pili, peri peri or pilli pilli.

Notes

(1) Dilute the c46 base sauce with 100/200 ml of water and heat before use. If defrosted from frozen the base sauce can be warmed and briefly blended to reconstitute the colour and consistency. Other base sauces of choice can be used instead. Not all of this will be used in this recipe.
