Chicken Tikka Masala

‘Chicken Tikka Masala’ is served in restaurant all over the world, very popular in UK and India and Indian continent. Let us prepare it in our home, serve with Basmati rice and Naan a complete and delicious meal for weekend party or any other celebration day.

I cooked here in authentic style, use boneless part like chicken breast/thigh marinated in curd (yogurt) for at least 10 minutes, if you are short of time otherwise it is better to keep it in refrigerator overnight or for longer duration (6 -8 hours).

Grill the marinated chicken and put into creamy gravy.

You may use air fryer, non stick pan or cast iron skillet instead of grilling, my family loves it!!!
