Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken Tikka Masala With Basmati Rice

Boil a kettle

Peel and grate the brown onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

2 Chicken Tikka Masala With Basmati Rice

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the grated onion, chopped garlic and ginger with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until softened

3 Chicken Tikka Masala With Basmati Rice

Meanwhile, add the basmati rice with a pinch of salt and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid, and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

4 Chicken Tikka Masala With Basmati Rice

While the rice is cooking, cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces

5 Chicken Tikka Masala With Basmati Rice

Once the onion has softened, add the korma curry powder and ground paprika and cook for 1 min or until fragrant

Add the diced chicken breast and cook for 3-4 min further or until coated in all of the spices

6 Chicken Tikka Masala With Basmati Rice

While the chicken is cooking, dissolve the tomato paste, Knorr chicken stock cube[s] and honey in 250ml [450ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

7 Chicken Tikka Masala With Basmati Rice

Add the tomato stock to the pan and cook for 6-8 min or until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

Once done, add the clotted cream and cook for 1 min further or until melted – this is your chicken tikka masala

Pick the coriander leaves from the stalks and set aside for garnish, discard the stalks
