Bihari Chicken Masala with Beetroot Pooris

Bihar is located on the river plains of the Ganges where flood-cycles produce incredibly fertile soil, and therefore an abundance of vegetables, fruit, rice and wheat. As a result, Bihari meals often consist of an array of colourful veg dishes, as served here with a relatively simple chicken curry. Beetroot is turned into pink pooris and a cooling raita, tomatoes are roasted to intensify the flavour and mashed with spices and onions to make a typical Bihari dish known as choka, spinach is simply stewed, and a pilau rice flavoured with turmeric, fenugreek and mustard completes the meal.
