You're right, and I might try that next time. Some dishes call for a small steel bowl to be placed in the pot, into which goes a lit piece of charcoal. You then pour a spoonful of ghee on the charcoal and seal up the pot quickly with dough. The ghee sizzles on the charcoal, introducing a smoky flavor into the dish.
Have you had chicken tikka masala before? It was invented in England when a balti joint customer pi$$ed off the cook by saying the tandoori chicken was too dry. The cook took the chicken, added a can of tomato soup, some spices and voila - chicken tikka masala was born. At least that's how the story goes.
I think the char and smokiness of grilled chicken would taste really good in this dish, so I'll defintiely give it a whirl!
