This is a recipe created by Chef Mario Ramsay, Algonquin College from an Ottawa Beer Tasting event we did Nov. 29/12 at Restaurant International alongside a number of local beer experts.
Chicken Curry / Papadums paired with Mill St. Ambre de la Chaudiere
250 g Onion, brunoise
10 g Garlic, finely chopped
30 mL Ghee (or clarified butter)
60 g Fresh ginger, grated
5 g Turmeric
3 g Coriander seeds, ground
2 g Cumin seeds, ground
2 g Cayenne pepper
2 g Fenugreek, ground
575 mL Coconut milk
1 Roasting chicken, 1.3 kg, cut in 8 pieces
5 g Salt
1 Jalapeño, split and seeded
30 ml Lemon juice
1 pkg Papadums
1. Fry the onion and garlic in the ghee until the onions are pale golden and the oil “returns” to the pan.
2. To make the wet masala, mix the ginger, turmeric, coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper and fenugreek; add just enough of the coconut milk to form a paste.
3. Add the wet masala to the onion and fry for 8 minutes, or until the mixture is fragrant.
4. Add the chicken pieces and cook, turning them frequently, for 6-8 minutes.
5. Add the remaining coconut milk, salt and jalapeño. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook until the chicken is done, approximately 45 minutes.
6. Remove meat from the bone
7. Just before service, stir in the lemon juice and adjust the seasonings. Serve with rice and chutney or sambals.
Ambre de la Chaudiere
Description: This is a Northern French style of farmhouse ale traditionally made in the winter months and then laid-down in a cellar (thus the “Bière de Garde” appellation) for drinking throughout the year. It is a traditional amber beauty presented unfiltred with the yeast still in it to add to the slightly fruity/spicy aroma and creaminess of palate. Brewed with a blend of North American and European malt and hops, Ambre de la Chaudiere is a true reflection of our Canadian immigrant culture. Named after the famous Chaudière Falls beside our Brewery, this beer pays homage to a time gone by when honest craftmanship and simplicity were truly valued.
