Dhaba style Chicken Tikka Masala



This is different from what i usually do...i do it with tomato based gravy but i thought i ll just try for a change but to my suprise it was really creamier and delicious...and worth trying out this way

Ingredients


1 kg boneless chicken cut into small pieces


2 onion finely chopped


2 tsp ginger-garlic paste

1 chicken stock cube dissolved in 1 cup water
or 1 cup chicken stock

10 almonds(soaked and ground to paste)


2 tbsp oil

4 tbsp butter


3 tbsp cream


3 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves


salt to taste


For Marination


Juice of 1 lemon


1/2 cup yogurt


1 tbsp garam masala powder

1 tbsp ground coriander


1 tsp cumin seeds


2 tsp red chilli powder


1 tbsp kasoori methi


salt to taste


For the dry Spice Mix

10 black peppercorns

3 green cardamom


1 bay leaf


6 cloves

1 small stick of cinnamon


Method

  • Mix all the marinate Ingredients in a bowl,add this to the chicken and coat well and allow it to marinate for one hour
  • Dry roast all the ingredients under dry spice mix and then grind it to a fine powder, then keep aside
  • In a pan, add 2 tbsp oil,2 tbsp butter, fry onion and ginger-garlic paste till golden brown and then add the Marinated chicken pieces(only the chicken pieces) leaving yogurt spice marinade aside
  • Fry chicken till it turns whitish and then add the dry spice mix, chicken stock and cook till the chicken is tender
  • Now add the yogurt spice marinade(remaining marinade) and allow it to cook for 10 minutes
  • Then add the almond paste,2 tbsp butter,cream, coriander leaves and cook for 2 minutes and then serve hot with Naan or roti.
