Chicken tikka massala

Tikka massala is one of my fave curries. It's creamy like a butter chicken but with a bit more kick.

Tikka massala

You can hardly call this an Indian dish, I believe this dish originated in England. Because of the colonial past there's a huge diaspora of Indians in England and this dish was made specifically for the English taste.

Naan

As you can see I served naan with it, for me a curry isn't complete without is. The recipe is in my cookbook Vers Deegbut it's in Dutch only.

Curry

Did you like this curry and want to go for something a bit similar but still very different? Try this katsu currywith crispy chicken.

    Wat een heerlijk recept! Ga dit zeker maken volgende week. Maar vroeg me af of ik ipv kip ook vegetarisch kan maken. Zat zelf te denken aan vega kip. Wat zou jij doen?

      Vega kip is een goed idee! Je kunt er ook iets van bonen in doen of bloemkool of aardappel of halloumi (of paneer maar dat vind ik zelf niet zo lekker), er zijn zoveel opties!

    Hi Claudia,

    Vandaag staat dit gerecht bij mij op het menu, gisteren al de kip gemarrineerd, dus dat komt mooi uit!
    Ook ga ik het naanbrood zelf maken, hier heb ik een heel makkelijk receptje van nadiyaskitchen van Netflix! Ken je het programma?
