Easy Indian-Chicken Tikka Masala
I’ve added some cauliflower to this to add some bulk to it, and it’s also an easy way to add more veggies into your life. You know you want to.
First cut chicken into bite size pieces. Chop cauliflower into the same size.Next mix together chili powder, garlic, ginger, garam masala and greek yogurt. Rub all over chicken and let marinade for a couple hours.
Next mix garlic, onion powder, ground coriander, fennel, black pepper and garam masala in a small dish.
Note: As a topping, I added toasted cashews and yellow mustard seeds, which you can quickly fry in your pan before you begin the sauce:
Let cook for a couple of minutes then add tomatoes, followed by the coconut milk and sugar. Let cook for about 20 minutes.
While the sauce is cooking, you can either add the chicken directly in, or cook separately in the oven(which is what I did). Just place in an even layer on a baking tray(with cauliflower if added) and bake at 180 for about 15-20 minutes. Once cooked, add to sauce and cook for an additional 5 minutes or so. And there you have it…
This curry has a mild heat to it and should please even the pickiest eaters.
Serve with Basmati rice or bread
