Chicken Tikka Curry

As promised I am now sharing our Chicken Tikka Curry recipe. My Mum and I created a mash up of a few recipes to create this dish and then adapted the original recipes to suit which ingredients we had on hand. The result was beyond delicious. We served it with a course cauliflower mash but you could easily serve this with brown rice if you would prefer. We made the Tikka paste to begin with, which makes more than you need for this recipe so I just froze it in an ice tray for next time. It makes for a quick and easy meal when the Tikka paste is ready made and waiting in the freezer!

If you’re having a cauliflower mash with it, I just kept the curry in the thermoserver and chopped a head of cauliflower roughly, added to the varoma, filled the jug to about 1.2L and steamed on speed 1 for approx 20 minutes, then emptied the jug, added the cauli and mashed in on speed 4-5 until desired consistency is reached.

Until next time,
