Chicken Tikka Masala is one of the most popular curries of North Indian cuisine that you can find in any restaurant. Made with chicken thighs and curd, it is an interesting main dish recipe that is sure to be loved by people of all age groups.
Wash and clean the chicken pieces. Cut the chicken thighs in medium size pieces in a shallow dish. Take a bowl and then add curd, turmeric powder, cumin powder, 1 tsp of chilli and coriander powder. Marinate the chicken pieces and keep in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours so that all the flavours are soaked in.
Now, broil the marinated chicken in the oven until it is crisp and brown from both sides, alternatively you can grill or pan roast/fry the chicken pieces. Once done, heat oil in a pan over moderate flame. Saute garlic, ginger paste, onions, tomatoes and tomato puree. Then add garam masala,1 tsp chilli powder and 1 tsp coriander powder. Stir well.
Saute the ingredients until the oil starts separating from the mixture. Add heavy cream and simmer for 5 mins until the sauce is thickened. Add the broiled chicken pieces to the sauce. Simmer for another 5-6 minutes until chicken is mixed with the sauce/gravy.
Once done, transfer the dish to a serving bowl and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
It goes well with all types of breads - Naans, rumali roti buns etc.
