Chicken Tikka Masala – God Salve The Curry

I in all probability move to a greater extent than requests for Indian nutrient than whatever other ethnic cuisine, therefore I was rattling excited to endure posting this chicken tikka masala; until I constitute out it’s genuinely a British recipe. It was the same feeling I had when I constitute out that pizza wasn’t invented inward New York. 

So technically, I withal owe yous an authentic Indian recipe, but inward the meantime I holler upward this volition create nicely. While this is a stripped-down version, where we’ve cutting out several time-consuming steps, it was withal incredibly delicious, in addition to rattling Indian curry-like. 

As I refer inward the video, this is normally done alongside heavy cream, but I similar to purpose kokosnoot milk instead. It’s in all probability a picayune amend for you, but to a higher house in addition to beyond that, the subtle sweetness it provides industrial plant beautifully alongside the spices inward the dish.

By the way, yous tin substitute chicken thorax here, but since we’re non doing the traditional yogurt marinade first, I believe thighs move much amend inward this version. Usually chicken breasts are marinated inward yogurt first, in addition to and therefore cooked inward a tandoor oven, earlier beingness added to the sauce. It is a neat agency to create it, but fifty-fifty without that step, I idea this was excellent. So, I promise yous plow over this American version of a British version of an Indian curry a endeavour soon. Enjoy!
