Tips For The Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe
➡️ Chicken tikka is one of the most flavored chicken recipes that I cook at home. It is actually a chicken curry that uses in a great way the leftover grilled chicken. Many people think that tikka masala is Indian food. That’s just partly real because this type of chicken food has been invented by Indian chefs from the UK (read more about this topic above).
➡️ Another interesting thing about chicken tikka is that this food doesn’t have a unique recipe. Instead, every chef has their own version! So, don’t be surprised if you’ll find different homemade chicken masala recipes on culinary blogs!
➡️ I have also more homemade chicken tikka masala recipes. Sometimes I use grilled chicken on the charcoal barbecue because of the added smoked flavor, which I simply love! Other times, I cook tikka masala with leftover chicken roast or with fried chicken breast, depending on which of these ingredients I have at hand at that moment.
➡️ As for the flavors used for my homemade chicken tikka masala recipes, the same variations apply. All my tikka masala recipes feature salt, black pepper, and curry, but others can vary pretty much. However, the base which is common in all my homemade chicken tikka masala recipes is fried onion. Basically, I cook a strongly flavored onion sauce in which I soften fried or grilled chicken.
➡️ Most chicken tikka recipes require serving them with boiled rice. I also use this side dish for this easy chicken tikka masala recipe because boiled rice matches very well chicken stew, which is, in fact, tikka masala. Besides rice, other side dishes can be served along with your homemade chicken tikka masala recipe. Some of the most suitable ones include mashed potatoes, boiled potatoes, and boiled pasta, to name but a few of them.
