This is one of my family’s favourite weeknight meals. It is super easy to make and only takes 10 minutes of active cooking! 

The dish is simply tossing all the ingredients, chicken, veggies, ginger, garlic, onions, and a bit of tikka masala paste into a bowl with salt and some olive oil. And giving it a mix with your hands, toss it into a baking sheet and fire it in a preheated oven. 

While it’s cooking, you can make your basmati rice and raita (Indian yogurt condiment) and boom, a tasty dinner is on your table with fairly little effort!

What is Tikka Masala? 

Tikka Masala is a very famous Indian dish that has become a national dish in the United Kingdom. It’s a butter chicken derivative with the same creamy, deep flavours that are oh-so-crave-able! 

The Tikka Masala paste is available in local Indian grocers and major grocery stores around the world. The paste is made from garlic, onion, tomato and spices. Even if you are not a fan of spicy food, there is no need to worry; this dish is not a spicy one! 

Let’s Breakdown the Ingredients! 

The Tikka Masala packs this dish with deep flavours, but the protein, vegetables, and herbs used bring together the entire dish! 

The Tikka Masala paste adds flavours of garlic, onion, tomato, and other spices to flavour the dish. Ginger adds a warm, peppery flavour to the meat and vegetables in the recipe. When cooked, the fresh garlic adds a nutty flavour to the dish, and cilantro adds a peppery citrus flavour. 

Chicken thighs are often the juiciest cut of the meat because it contains more fat than white meat, and it is also a great way to add lean protein to your diet. 

This recipe also has vegetables that add extra flavour and nutrients to the meal. The red onions add a spicy-to-mild taste to the dish. Meanwhile, potatoes are rich in fibre, and cauliflower is naturally high in fibre and vitamin B and provides antioxidants.
