chicken tikka masala recipe

This week, I forgot to specify what kind of meal I was going to cook since my menu only said a rice dish, this is due to my son being a picky eater and loving one thing today and hating it the next day, very normal by the way. So the only meat I had was chicken and decided to make chicken tikka masala. This was sort of me trying out Lorraine Pascale’s recipe minus the spring onions because I had none so I went ahead and just used white onions instead and still had a great result.To make this meal the way I did, you will need,

  • In a pan, pour in your Olive oil and put on medium heat.
  • Chop up your onions then mince the garlic and ginger.
  • Put your diced chicken in the oil in one layer and make sure to keep turning them as they start to brown.
  • While the chicken is doing its thing, prep your spices and put them aside.
  • Once the chicken is evenly browned, put in the onions, salt, garlic and ginger and stir.
  • Then take your spices and tomato paste and also put them in and continue stirring, now it’s time for the single cream and stir again.
  • Put a lid on and let it simmer for a while, but make sure to be checking on it.
  • Then chop up the coriander, once your chicken is cooked all through and the cream has thickened, switch it off and put in the coriander.
  • Stir it once more and it’s done. Serve and enjoy.Hope you do get to love it as much as i do and it can also be eaten with naan bread or some chapati.For the recipe, you can go here
