Chicken Tikka Masala – God Salve The Curry

I in all probability locomote to a greater extent than requests for Indian nutrient than whatsoever other ethnic cuisine, thence I was rattling excited to hold upwards posting this chicken tikka masala; until I institute out it’s genuinely a British recipe. It was the same feeling I had when I institute out that pizza wasn’t invented inwards New York. 

So technically, I however owe you lot an authentic Indian recipe, but inwards the meantime I recall this volition produce nicely. While this is a stripped-down version, where we’ve cutting out several time-consuming steps, it was however incredibly delicious, in addition to rattling Indian curry-like. 

As I refer inwards the video, this is commonly done amongst heavy cream, but I similar to role kokosnoot milk instead. It’s in all probability a petty ameliorate for you, but higher upwards in addition to beyond that, the subtle sweetness it provides industrial plant beautifully amongst the spices inwards the dish.

By the way, you lot tin forcefulness out substitute chicken thorax here, but since we’re non doing the traditional yogurt marinade first, I believe thighs run much ameliorate inwards this version. Usually chicken breasts are marinated inwards yogurt first, in addition to and thence cooked inwards a tandoor oven, earlier beingness added to the sauce. It is a non bad agency to produce it, but fifty-fifty without that step, I idea this was excellent. So, I promise you lot plough over this American version of a British version of an Indian curry a endeavor soon. Enjoy!
