Place papaya, red pepper and onion in a medium bowl. Whisk tamarind paste with water, lime juice, fish sauce and sugar until sugar dissolves. Pour over papaya mixture and toss to coat. 

Grease grill and preheat barbecue to high. Remove steak from marinade. Place on grill and barbecue about 3 to 5 min per side for medium-rare. Let stand about 5 min before thinly slicing across the grain. 

Leave one side of each baguette attached, and slice through horizontally. For each baguette, spread aioli on both cut sides. Then divide and layer sliced steak on bottom half of each baguette.

Butter Chicken Schnitzel

“I’m not going to buy chicken nuggets, I’m going to teach you how to make them.”

Chicken nuggets are a childhood favourite and Vikram Vij wanted to offer a sophisticated alternative that kids would still love without forcing their parents to venture anywhere near the frozen foods aisle. Vikram’s recipe for Butter Chicken Schnitzel combines his mastery of modern Indian cuisine with a nod to his time spent working as a chef in Austria, where Wiener Schnitzel is a national specialty. The colourful ingredients and relative simplicity of this dish make it a perfect meal to prepare with young helpers. 

A Word From the Master

“Before we even owned a restaurant, we vowed that we would never serve butter chicken. We have stuck to that vow in our 16 years, if for no other reason than there are plenty of restaurants already serving it. It also keeps us creative. The inspiration for this dish came at a local restaurant one night, when the girls asked for chicken nuggets from the kids’ menu. The next evening we decided to show the girls what “real” chicken nuggets are – chicken schnitzel.”

Key Ingredients

  • Boneless Chicken Breasts

As our top selling sandwich, it strikes the perfect balance between salty, sweet, and sour, making it a winner on all levels.
