chicken tikka masala

Chicken Tikka MasalaI love chicken tikka masala. It is one of my two favorite Indian dishes along with tandoori chicken. Unfortunately, our local Indian restaurant (at least we have one now!) rarely makes chicken tikka masala available on its buffet. I had a hankering for the dish, so I decided to make it myself.

I have a few chicken tikka masala recipes in my database. I decided to try this one by Aarti Sequeira, of whom I am a big fan. I made the marinade as specified a few hours ahead. I took a big shortcut on the sauce. Rather than doing it in steps as the recipe specified, I threw all the ingredients into my Vitamix, created a smooth sauce and the put it into the pan with the chicken which had been cooking for a while.

The result was delightful. Very much the taste of restaurant chicken tikka masala. Terry called it “killer.” It was one of those recipes that really worked.
