Indian Chicken TikkaWhat's The Big Idea?
OK, first up, let's get the "nomenclature" out of the way. Chicken Tikka is not the same thing as Chicken Tikka Masala. In much the same way that a single chipolata isn't the same as a sausage casserole. Don't order one and expect the other (as my kids seem prone to doing!). Chicken Tikka literally just means "pieces of chicken", and consists of bite-sized pieces of chicken which are marinated, and then traditionally cooked in a tandoor oven, but it works pretty well under a grill or on a barbecue. A relatively "dry" dish, no sauce. Chicken Tikka Masala, on the other hand, is an invention of the British "Indian restaurant", and takes those Chicken Tikka pieces and adds them to a tomato-and-cream-sauce.
Now we've clarified that, this is one of my favourite Indian-style recipes, and is fantastic as part of either an Indian-style meal, or a general barbecue. But remember to allow plenty of time for marination.
Serve with the a small green salad, a little mango chutney and a segment of lemon if serving as a starter, or just as they are if using as part of a barbecue.Shopping List
