Anchorage is home to the best restaurant in the world! Bombay Deluxe completely rocks the Indian cuisine scene. Sadly, we are moving to Logan, Utah this week, and must bid farewell to Bombay’s delicious food.
My husband loves their chicken tikka masala and so I’ve been scouring the internet for a recipe that could possibly approximate his favorite dish.
This recipe from Mattawa Mum is the best I’ve found so far. It makes up pretty easy, and has great flavor!
You’ll need to make the marinate a couple hours ahead of time. Put the yogurt, lemon juice, cumin, pepper, cinnamon, salt, and ginger in a plastic bag. Add the chicken and mush it around to make sure it’s coated. Then you can put your marinade in the fridge and let it sit. I left mine for about an hour and we got great taste. The original recipe recommends 2 hours.
Then, you’ll need to dump your chicken into a frying pan and cook it through until the juices run clear. You can get rid of the rest of the marinade.
Next, prepare the sauce. Start by melting the butter and sauteing the jalapeno. Then add all your spices and the tomato sauce and bring to a slow boil.
Add the cream (1 cup for hot, 2 cups for medium/mild). Now it actually looks like tikka masala!
Add the chicken and allow the sauce to simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice and enjoy your homemade Indian deliciousness!
