Eastern Delight Kebab Manchester founded in 2016 but this journey goes back to 1996, twenty years ago with a humble beginning in Dubai.
It’s been nearly a month since our eastern delight opened in Old Trafford Manchester and what a month it’s been. I wish we could have opened it years ago!
Eastern Delight is located at Seymour Grove old Trafford, close to Manchester united stadium & old Trafford cricket stadium. We are so lucky to acquire this place in the vicinity of one of the main suburbs of Manchester city. It’s lovely to see people coming from Manchester united and celebrating for their favourite teams.
We are glad now as it’s open, but it hasn’t been easy journey! Manchester has been one of the vibrant cities in the UK and if you are opening a fast food joint it takes huge amount of micro managing, and very little rest. Fortunately as this is our second venture after Dubai, we are used to fix things and develop our skills.
Eastern Delight will be offering you mouth-watering Indian food recipes every month. This week we will write about Indian food (chilli chicken) recipe. Check out this Indian recipe which is delicious and healthy.
(Serves for 4 people) 300gms boneless and skinless chicken thighs cut into small bite size pieces Oil for frying
Chilli chicken is one of the famous dishes in India. Delicious chicken coated in a thick batter and fried until crisp are added to garlicky chilli juicy gravy. It can be served up with some noodles or fried rice; it’s the sort of food we need in the winters to warm up a cold evening.
You can deep fry the chicken pieces if you prefer, we tend not to as we eat it so often. Also I have used chicken thigh which are a much more succulent cut and despite frying and then simmering in the gravy, doesn’t dry out. I have used Kecap manis which is a thicker and slightly sweeter soy sauce and is ideal to get a dark rich sauce but if you can’t find any just swap it for a dark soy and add a pinch of sugar to balance the flavour. Also a regular shop bought chilli garlic sauce for this recipe is great.
