CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA RECIPE from a Dubai expat

CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA RECIPE from a Dubai expat on Dubai Good Old Days site

There is quite a bit of work involved to do this one, so I have separated it into two parts to make it easier to follow through :-
 
CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA RECIPE,

you will require:

For the first Part:
 
1Kg boneless chicken breast.
1/4 cup yogurt.
3 tsp minced ginger (Or paste).
4 tsp of crushed garlic.
1/4 tsp white pepper.
1/4 tsp cumin powder .
1/4 tsp mace .
1/4 tsp nutmeg .
1/4 tsp green cardamom powder .
1/2 tsp chili powder .
1/4 tsp turmeric .
3 tbsp lemon juice .
4 tbsp vegetable oil .
Melted butter or ghee (for basting).

For the second Part :

5 oz. tomato paste .
10 oz. tomato puree .
1 Kg of tomatoes, chopped .
2 tsp ginger paste .
2 tsp garlic paste.
3 medium sized green chillies .
1 tbsp red chilli powder .
2 tsp of mixed cloves.
8 green cardamoms .
Salt To Taste .
3 tbsp butter.
2/3 (75%) cup cream.
1 tsp fenugreek .
2 tsp ginger,
and lastly honey to taste.

Right, what you do is this:
Whisk all of the ingredients from the first part together in a large bowl.
Cut the breast into 2 inch cubes. and add to the bowl.
Leave it to marinate overnight in the fridge.

Then what you do is, preheat the oven to 350? F., put the chicken in, and cook for 8 minutes, basting it with the butter/ghee a couple of times.
Drain the excess marinade and continue cooking for another couple of minutes.
While this is going on, make the sauce from the second part, by Deseeding, and chopping the green chilies. Into thin rings.
Put the tomatoes, tomato paste and the tomato puree in a pot and add approximately 4-1/2 cups of water.
Then add the ginger and garlic paste, the ringed green chilies, red chili powder, cloves, cardamoms, and salt. (Go easy on the salt; usually a pinch or two does the job).
Cook over a low heat until the slurry has been reduced to a thick sauce.
Strain through a strainer and bring to a boil.
Add butter and cream. Stir.
If the sauce tastes a bit sour, add some honey to get the acquired taste.
Then add the fenugreek and ginger, stir, and serve the sauce with the chicken.

There?s quite a bit of work into preparing this dish, so we tend to cook it when we have friends over. It?s well worth the effort in the end!

I didn't try this recipe, as this is a regional version from an expat in Dubai. It may not have anything in common with the typical british CTM. I recommend you look into this section for BIR CTM.
