This curry is fondly regarded as a perfect combination of mellow cream, tomatoes, and a well-rounded spice blend. We have chosen to use chicken in this tikka masala recipe. However, you can use paneer or vegetables for a vegetarian version (adjust your cooking times accordingly). For added freshness and piquancy, we’ve garnished with chopped ginger and green chillies. Lastly, we’ve added a creamy zing to this dish by serving with a herby yoghurt. Simply delicious and so easy to prepare.
Ingredients
  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Original Tikka Masala
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 250g chicken thighs, diced.

To garnish

  • 2 green chillies, cut julienne (long thin slices)
  • Thumb-sized piece of ginger, cut julienne (long thin sticks)
  • ½ tsp. vegetable oil

Herby yogurt

  • 75g natural yoghurt
  • Small bunch of coriander and mint leaves
  • 45g cucumber, seeded and finely diced.
Method
  1. Start preparing your garnishes by heating ½ tsp. of vegetable oil in a small frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the ginger for a few minutes until golden and crispy, then remove from the pan and leave to one side on a piece of kitchen roll.
  2. Blend the yoghurt, mint and coriander together in a small food processor, scraping down the sides if needed. Season to taste with salt. Stir through the finely diced cucumber and set to one side.
  3. To prepare the curry, place the pan you used to fry the ginger over a medium high heat. Add 1 tbsp. of vegetable oil and the spices from the spice sachet.
  4. Cook for 20 seconds until aromatic, then add the diced chicken thighs to brown lightly. Add the Original Tikka Masala base sauce from the small pouch and simmer for a few minutes.
  5. Stir in the main sauce, bring to a simmer and let cook for 4-5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, adding a splash of water if needed.
  6. Serve with basmati rice, drizzle over the herby cucumber yoghurt, then scatter over the sliced chilli and fried ginger.
