Description

A quick and easy homemade Indian dish that is flavor- and nutrition-packed!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE GARAM MASALA:
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Coriander
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Cloves
  • FOR THE TIKKA MASALA:
  • 4 Tablespoons Canola, Sesame Or Sunflower Oil
  • 1 pound Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breasts, Fat Trimmed And Cubed
  • 1  Small Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 4  Small Carrots, Diced
  • 1  Jalapeño Pepper, Stem And Seeds Removed, Finely Diced
  • 12 ounces, weight Frozen Chopped Cauliflower Florets, Thawed
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • 15 ounces, weight Canned Diced Tomatoes
  • ½ cups Coconut Milk
  • Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

For the garam masala:
Into a bowl, add all the spices listed above for the garam masala. Stir until well combined, and set aside.

For the tikka masala:
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Season the chicken cubes with a pinch of salt and pepper, add them into the hot pan and sauté the chicken until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer chicken to a bowl, cover with foil and set aside.

Add the remaining 3 tablespoons oil to the pan along with the onion and garlic and cook until veggies are softened, about 1-2 minutes. Add the carrots and jalapeño and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken back in, along with the thawed cauliflower, tomato paste, and the whole batch of garam masala. Stir until spices are well combined. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the chopped tomatoes, simmer until tomatoes are warmed through and season to taste with salt and pepper. Turn off the heat and add coconut milk. Stir until well combined. Serve over brown rice.

Not quite like the chicken tikka masala I’m used to – I think maybe it was missing the ginger and smooth creaminess – but definitely an easier and healthier alternative!
