This chicken tikka masala recipe has been VERY much requested over the past few days. I made this on Instagram and you guys went crazy. The thing is, this was my very first Indian dish, that I’ve EVER made. Which is shameful, because I’m Indian, and both my parents are amazing cooks.

Nonetheless, I made an amazing Chicken Tikka Masala, and it turned out great! So great, that many, MANY of you requested that the recipe be posted on the blog asap.

The recipe is certainly not mine. I 99% of the time get my recipes from This is the perfect website for those learning to cook, because they have videos! And those are my favourite things ever. I hate reading long-winded recipes.

So here it is: [link to video]

For those of you that like to read recipes, here it is:


Step 1: In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, and 4 teaspoons salt. Stir in chicken, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 2: Preheat a grill for high heat.

Step 3: Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill until juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side.

Step 4: Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Sauté garlic and jalapéno for 1 minute. Season with 2 teaspoons cumin, paprika, and 3 teaspoons salt. Stir in tomato sauce and cream. Simmer on low heat until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Add grilled chicken, and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and garnish with fresh cilantro. (I like to put TONSSS.

If you guys try out this recipe, DO let me know how it turns out!!
