Popular Indian Dish: Chicken Tikka Masala


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)


  1. In a bowl, combine the yogurt with half of the minced garlic, grated ginger, garam masala, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken cubes and marinate for at least 1 hour (preferably overnight).
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes. Add the remaining minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  3. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 2-3 minutes until it darkens in color.
  4. Add the marinated chicken along with the marinade to the skillet. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Pour in the heavy cream and simmer for another 5 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken slightly.
