Description

In India, tikkas are simply small pieces of anything, and in this much-loved curry it's chicken. Traditionally the chicken pieces marinate in spices for hours and are then grilled in a clay oven and added to a rich tomato-based sauce. But to make the process simpler and quicker, we skip the marinating, brown the seasoned chicken in a hot skillet, and simmer it in the masala mixture. For authentic color and flavor, plan ahead to have the Kashmiri chili and fenugreek leaves on hand. Or skip them; the dish will still taste great. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Prerna Singh.

    For a fairly novice cook, this was an easy recipe to follow. Though intimidating at first, all the ingredients came together and create a restaurant like dinner. Would cook again
