How to make Chicken tikka masala?

Just follow these simple steps to make chicken tikka masala at home.


  1. Combine the chicken with all the components of the chicken marinate in a dish. Marinate for 10 minutes to 60 minutes (or if time permits, overnight).

  2. W
    armth oil in a tremendous skillet or pot over medium-high heat. While sizzling, remember chicken pieces for bunches of a couple, doing

    whatever it takes not to crowd the pot. Fry until seared for just 3 minutes on each side. Put in a secured spot and keep warm. (You will wrap up cooking the chicken in the sauce).

  3. Soften the spread in a similar dish. Fry the onions until delicate (around 3 minutes) while scraping up any seared pieces stuck on the lower part of the skillet.

  4. Incorporate garlic and ginger and sauté for 1 second until fragrant, by then add garam masala, cumin, turmeric and coriander. Fry for around 20 seconds until fragrant, while mixing slowly.

  5. Pour in the tomato puree, stew salt and powders. Let stew for around 10-15 minutes, blending occasionally until sauce thickens and transforms into a significant hearty hued red tone.

  6. Blend the cream and sugar through the sauce. Incorporate the chicken and its juices back into the skillet and cook for an additional 8-10 minutes until chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thick and permeating. Pour in the water to scatter the sauce, if important.
