Enjoy exotic tastes of potatoes, spices and masala in this twist on a classic curry recipe. Ginger, chilli and almonds are just a few of the exciting ingredients in the mix of this chicken & Potato tikka masala.

-

For this recipe, cut the raw potatoes into chunks before cooking.

Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan and cook the onions for 10 minutes or until soft. Add the chilli (if using), garlic, ginger, tikka paste and red pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Add the raw potato chunks and red pepper to the pan. Stir well before adding the tomato purée, tinned tomatoes and water. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, or until the potato is cooked through. Add the chicken and cook for another 15 minutes (top with a little water if the meat doesn’t fit beneath the surface of the liquid). Add the cream and season well. Serve with chopped coriander, flaked almonds and lime wedges.

TIPs

  • Add a couple of handfuls of spinach add the end of cooking if you’d like to get more veg into this dish
  • Season with 1tsp salt, both potatoes and cream disguise salt so you may need more than you think to bring the flavours out
