Parisian Mumbai Salad Recipe Inspired by The Hundred Foot Journey #100FootJourneyEvent
I was receiving quite a few inquiries about the salad I made at my Le Cordon Bleu experience. Thankfully, they were so nice to share the Parisian Mumbai Salad Recipe with us so our fans could enjoy as well. You seriously will LOVE the combination of French and Indian flavors of this dish, inspired by the new movie The Hundred Foot Journey. And I actually was quite surprised how easy it was to create. The naan croutons are to die for! So here’s how to make this amazing salad:
Parisian Mumbai Salad Recipe Inspired by The Hundred Foot Journey
– 1 cup plain yogurt
– 1 teaspoon each of freshly grated ginger, minced garlic, ground cardamom
– 1 Tablespoon curry powder
– 2 (6 oz.) skinless, boneless chicken breasts (cut into 1/3 strips)
– 2 Tablespoons each of salt and pepper to taste
– 4 oz. mixed greens
– 1 julienned mango
– 1 apple with skin, julienned
– 2 T. salad oil
– 1 t. red wine vinegar
– 1/4 t. Dijon mustard
– Salt and Pepper to taste
– 1 piece cut into cubes
– 1/2 oz. salad oil
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 1 oz. grape seed oil
– 2 t. granulated sugar
– 1/2 t. curry powder
– 2 oz. walnuts
1. In a plastic bag, combine the yogurt, ginger, garlic, cardamom, curry powder, salt and pepper.
2. Add the sliced chicken pieces and marinate for 45 minutes, set aside.
3. Julienne (2″x1/4×1/4 in.) mango and apple, set aside.
4. Proceed making the vinaigrette, in a bowl mix Dijon mustard and red wine vinegar together, add salt and pepper.
5. Slowly incorporate the salad oil while continuously whisking. Set aside.
6. Take the bread and cut it into 3/4 in. cubes or bite size pieces, then drizzle with salad oil, then season with salt and pepper.
7. Bake the bread in the oven at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Halfway through the baking, check the bread, toss it around to give it even cooking, then place it back in the oven until golden brown.
8. While waiting for the bread, toss walnuts into the grape seed oil with sugar and curry powder, set aside.
9. Get the chicken, then grill it until the meat is white, not translucent. To create crisscross grill marks, grill the chicken following the 10 o’clock/2 o’clock pattern. Assemble onto plate and serve!
