Notes

Whilst this recipe is designed to be cooked using pre-cooked chicken tikka pieces, there is nothing stopping you from marinating the chicken pieces in some lemon juice and our all-in-one tikka masala, roasting in the oven until they start to get some char (only just) and using instead of the charcoal grilled tikka, made with an authentic tikka paste (recipe & video )
Lastly, if you are really pushed for time and want a quick and easy way to cook butter chicken, then try THIS RECIPE, just leave out all the different spices and only use the all-in-one Butter Chicken Masala.
Here is a video that our Spicemaster sent to me, when he was teaching me how to make the Butter Chicken Gravy, the ingredients have been slightly adjusted, such as a little less garlic, garam masala now blended into the masala, but you will get the drift.

Don’t forget your Kashmiri Chilli Powder, Cardamom Powder & all-in-one Tikka Masala.
