Chicken Tikka Masala

Posted By Kerri


Saturday night was the Last Night of the Proms and even though we never watch it, we decided to cook something typically British in honour of this long standing celebration. Chicken Tikka Masala (served with pilaf rice, in this instance) is widely reported as being Britain’s favourite dish and, since I’ve never had it before, it seemed like a good choice.

We did some planning in advance so that we could marinate the chicken overnight, we’d obviously exhausted our organisational skills though because we forgot the last step in the recipe: adding some additional garam masala just before the end of the cooking time for the rice. While we both enjoyed this, neither of us felt it had properly amalgamated in the pan which was probably due to our forgetfulness.

    I must confess, this is not the recipe I’d recommend if you really want to try something authentic and gorgeous!
    If you fancy Indian again soon, can recommend following meat curry recipes from mum’s site:
    Chicken Curry with Saffron, Mum’s Lamb Curry, Mum’s Chicken Curry, Sri Lankan Chicken Curry.
    Or for something veggie, the Chickpea Curry is every so popular.

    Nice – recipe. Great comfort food. Just what you need for the last night.

    I was a (season ticket) proms fan when I lived in London. Got to 45 concerts one year. So much variety & so many new sounds. These days I tune in on the radio while I work – lucky most of the other businesses near me finish at the absurdly early time of 5 – 5:30pm……..
