Tik Tik Tik... It's Chicken Tikka Masala time....:)




Ingredients:

Heavy cream-1 1/4 cup
Diced tomatoes(14 oz)-1 can
Chicken cubes-3 cups
Salt-As required
Black pepper powder-As required
Oil-2 tbs
Cumin powder-2 tsp
Paprika-2 tsp
Garlic(finely chopped)-2 pods
Green chillies/serrano pepper-2 numbers
Cilantro-few to garnish

If you don't have heavy cream at home, you can prepare the chicken tikka masala with the substitute as i have mentioned below.
Note:
Heavy cream substitute: Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl equivalent to 1/4 cup, later on pour 1 cup of milk to it.


Method:

Heat the oil in a skillet, add the chopped garlic and chopped green chillies/serrano peppers to it. Stir fry for a minute. Now stir in the cumin powder, salt, black pepper powder and paprika. Add in the tomatoes and the heavy cream into the skillet. Stir it frequently and let it thicken up a little for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile have the chicken washed and cleaned up. Add them to the skillet.Cover and let it cook for about 10 minutes. Check out whether the chicken has cooked and garnish it with some cilantro leaves. Serve the hot and exquisite chicken tikka masala with naan or rice.
