    Chicken Tikka Massala

    This is my interipation of this classis British dish, it's rich and spicy but not too sweet and creamy like many versions can be. This version is so easy to make at home but tastes as good as any you could buy from your local takeaway. Searved with pilau rice and a simple flat bread (recipes below).

    It is well worth investing in a selection of spices and I don't recommend ommiting or substituting them for others. The result is a dish superiour to any made from shop bought ready-made sauce and in the long run they will pay for themselves.

    Serves 4


    2 chicken breasts skinned and cut into 1 inch pieces

    1 oz ghee (butter will do if you have no ghee)

    1 tsp ground cumin

    1 tsp ground tumeric

    1 tsp ground coriander

    1 tsp garam massala

    1 onion

    2-3 cloves of garlic

    1 chilli deseeded (any colour will do, it depends how hot you like it)

    1 thumb sized piece of ginger

    1/2 a lemon

    1 can of tomatoes

    1/2 pint of milk

    1 tablespoon of sugar

    1 tablespoon of tomatoe puree


    In a food processor, blend together the onion, garlic,chilli, ginger and the lemon juice until smooth.

    Heat the ghee or butter in a large saucepan, when hot add the spices and gently stir fry for 1 minute.

    Add the chicken and stir fry for about 3 minutes until the meat is sealed. Now add the blended onion mix and continue to stir fry for a couple of minutes.

    Next add the tin of tomatoes and the tomatoe puree, bring to the boil and redudce the heat to a gentle simmer.

    continue to simmer, stirring occasionally for 30 minutes.

    After 30 minutes, remove the chicken using a slotted spoon and set aside somewhere warm.

    Turn up the heat, add the milk a little at a time , (you may not need it all) add the sugar, stir and boil rapidly until the sauce is reduced by about a third.

    Divide the chicken between the plates and pour the sauce over each portion.

    Serve with pilau rice and flatbread

  • chop 1 onion into fine cubes

    fry in 1/4 inch oil

    once browned add spiced powders ( corriander powder, tumeric, cumin tsp each and only pinch garham masala)

    stir slowly for 2 mins to toast and cook the spices

    add pinch madrass curry powder, garlic and ginger 1/2 tsp each

    add your chicken ( slashed to the bone) and stir occasionally to coat and start seasoning with spices in the pan ( for 6 nins)

    add 1/4 tin tomato paste

    1/2 tin tomatoes

    1/4 cup water

    squeeze of lemon juice

    tbsp of natural yogurt if you have it

    pinch of salt and chilli powder ( to desired taste)

    simmer for 35 mins or until chicken is cooked - add drizzle of water if too thick

    top with chopped corriander and serve


    serve with a mint and yogurt sauce and rice

    plain yogurt 2 spoon fulls mixed with 1/4 tsp mint sauce and pinch salt mmmmmmmm

    most chefs use tomato ketchup in place of tomato puree
