Chicken Tikka Masala

  • chicken breast x 2 cut in cubes
  • yogurt x 1/2 cup
  • coriander seed x 1.5 tsp
  • cumin x 1.5 tsp
  • chili powder 1 tsp
  • turmeric x 2 tsp
  • saffron x 1 pinch
  • ginger x 1 inch
  • crushed tomato x 250 ml
  • cream x 250 ml
  • butter x 1 tbsp
  • onion x 1 small chopped
  • garlic x 2 chopped
  • ginger x 1 inch grated
  • red chili x 1 chopped

  • coriander seed x 1 tsp
  • turmeric x 1 tsp
  • chili powder x 1 tsp
  • cinnamon x 1/2 tsp

Marinate the chicken and refrigerate overnight. Thread the chicken pieces onto wooden skewers and grill until the juices run clear. Let the chicken rest.
Meanwhile make the sauce: saute garlic, onion, ginger, red chili, coriander stalks and spices in butter. Saute for 7 to 10 minutes. This lets all the flavors combine. Add tomato and salt. Cook for 15 minutes. Add chopped cilantro and cream, mix well. Add chicken and cook for 5 more minutes. Garnish with cilantro and almond slivers. Serve with rice or naan.
