Tikka Masala with Garam Masala

Recipe by Chef Abraham Risho


“Tikka Masala is originally based from the Indian tandoori chicken, meaning chicken that is marinated in yogurt and fried in a very hot India oven. The yogurt is key to breaking down the collagen in the chicken, and will be the most tender chicken you will ever eat! As the story goes…. In the late 1800’s, a British officer in India requested chicken for dinner. The Indian chef made traditional tandoori chicken, but the officer sent it back asking for gravy with his chicken. The chef went straight to the pantry and pulled a can of Campbell’s tomato soup! He dumped the soup in with some Indian curry spices, threw the tandoori chicken in there… and voila, we have Tikka Masala! Today, however, we are using fresh ground tomatoes and cream, while simulating the style of slow cooking the ginger, garlic, onions in ghee or clarified butter. This recipe goes out to a buddy of mine who has been asking for a Tikka Masala recipe for the last 10 years. So….Ian: Happy Birthday & Merry Christmas together! Let’s have some Tikka Masala!”
