I’m so happy I found this awesome recipe! So thrilled with how it turned out. First time ever making chicken tikka masala and couldn’t be happier with the results. Thank you for this awesome recipe, keeper for sure.

One of the very very rare occasions you like a recipe from the first try. Extremely balanced and delicious, nothing to add, nothing to exclude (well, I substituted the cilantro with parsley, cilantro is not my green). Thank you, congratulations, Karine.

Thank you so much. Amazing recipe. Best one I have found online for this curry. I made a couple of swaps as I didn’t have everything but it was still amazing. The swaps were (incase it helps anyone):
I marinated the chicken in coconut milk
I used cayenne pepper instead of kashmir chilli
I used tin chopped tomatoes instead of Pasta
I used 3/4 coconut milk and 1/4 cream for the sauce
And lastly I used honey instead of sugar.
It still tasted restaurant standard perfect!

Really great and simple recipe – I put a glug of ground almonds in at the end to thicken the consistency which worked well. We like spice too, so two red chillis (deseeded and without pith) and a couple of teaspoons of chilli flakes brought this up to scratch. The batch frying does require a little patience, especially if you use more chicken than advertised.
