Chicken tikka masala recipe

Homemade chicken tikka masala

Chicken tikka masala is my kids’ all time favourite curry. They aren’t into spicy food so this and chicken korma are often on our evening menu. This recipe is the result of many visits to curry house kitchens. I have watched it be made many times and of course made it myself hundreds times more.

If you are a chicken tikka masala fan, this one is probably the best out there. I’ve had some great teachers. Now I would like you to be able to make this hugely popular mild curry too.

Many chicken tikka masalas are very sweet. I don’t personally care for overly sweet curries but if that’s what you like, add more sugar or honey. That will do the job.

All of the authentic Indian restaurant style curry recipes on my site use a base curry sauce. There is a link to my recipe below.

Most restaurants use tandoori style chicken for chicken tikka masala. Here is my recipe.

I recommend serving this chicken tikka masala with plain white rice and another curry such as chicken korma or my mildly spiced pork patia.

I like to marinate the chicken for 48 hours. You could get away with an hour or two but the longer you marinate the chicken the better.
