This has been VERY much requested over the past few days on Snapchat. If you were following along, you know that on Sunday I attempted to make my very first Indian dish. Which is quite sad, considering I am Indian, and both my parents are excellent 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 downside to all of this is that I caught a horrible flu over the last few days, and haven’t really been able to eat my delicious dish. The family is enjoying it on behalf of me…
So the recipe is certainly not mine. I 99% of the time get my recipes from Allrecipes.com. 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. Saute garlic and jalapeno 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.
