Chicken Tikka Masala
A British favourite, this mild, creamy curry is a national treasure. Allegedly invented in Glasgow to satisfy a customer request, the Indian chef combined Chicken Tikka with cream, ketchup and house curry sauce. Tikka Masala was born. It has come a long way since then but here is an easy to cook classic.

Spice Master Tips
Marinating - Deepen the flavours by marinating the chicken in the fridge for 4 hours or over night.
Chicken - We cook the chicken in the oven to mimic the tandoori oven. If you are pushed for time you can fry the chicken.
Spices - It’s imortant to “cook out” spices, frying them for a few minutes does this. Keep stiring them so they do not stick or burn as this will give your dish a bitter taste.
Tomatoes - We simmer them to allow the tomatoes to break down and the flavours to mature. It also reduces the water content making the sauce thicker.
Cream - It is important to use double cream when cooking at a high heat, the higher fat content stops the cream from splitting.
