Tikka Masala

This might not be the original version of tikka masala, but it’s a good one – one that I make every time I make tikka masala. If carrots and chickpeas aren’t cheap when you want to make it, feel free to add other vegetables – for example peas, cabbage, bell peppers etc.

Ingredients:

500gr chicken fillets

1 onion

1 can of chickpeas

1 carrot

3 cloves of garlic

1 can of coconut milk

5dl cream (1 pint/2cups)

2 cubes of chicken stock

1-2 packs of Tikka Masala spice pouches

Paprika powder, salt and turmeric

Butter to fry in

½dcl tomato purée

2tbsp soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Grate the carrot, chop the onion finely and press the garlic cloves
  2. Chop the chicken fillets to cubes
  3. Empty the can of chickpeas in a strainer and rinse them with cold water to get rid of the salt water
  4. Heat up a large frying pan or a cast iron skillet and fry all the vegetables, except the chickpeas until they’re brown
  5. Add the chicken and let it get some color too, but it doesn’t have to ready in the center
  6. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix it well.
  7. Let it simmer for at least 10 minutes. Put in salt, paprika powder and turmeric to taste.
