A national treasure! Our recipe creates a rich sauce with coconut and tomatoes, balanced with a special mix of aromatic spices and ajwain seeds.
Origin of the name: Tikka means small pieces and masala means blend of spices. Generally cubed pieces of chicken or lamb are first cooked in a 'tandoor' clay oven and then served with a rich creamy, aromatic sauce.
Try it with chicken - Rafi's favourite Tikka used a whole chicken cut into portions to bring out the maximum amount of flavour.

Tikka masala is great with paneer! As I am vegetarian I use paneer, capsicum and potato. It’s a nice vegetarian alternative to chicken tikka masala. I also use fresh onion, tomato puree, milk and some butter to make it rich and creamy. I serve it with fresh home-made naan bread and salad.Pooja
