Chicken tikka masala Chicken tikka masala This takeaway favourite is freezer-friendly and quick to reheat, giving you the chance to get ahead and save money Recipe uploaded by member_thumb Good Food 5 stars 37 ratings 5 Recipe by Good Food Subscribe to Good Food magazine - 3 issues for £3 Serves 10 Preparation and cooking times Preparation time Prep 15 mins Cook time Cook 50 mins Freezable Method 1. Heat the oil and butter in a large, lidded casserole on the hob, then add the onions and a pinch of salt. Cook for 15-20 mins until soft and golden. Add the paste and peppers, then cook for 5 mins more to cook out the rawness of the spices. 2. Add the chicken and stir well to coat in the paste. Cook for 2 mins, then tip in the tomatoes, purée and 200ml water. Cover with a lid and gently simmer for 15 mins, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through. 3. Remove the lid, stir through the mango chutney, cream and yogurt, then gently warm through. Season, then set aside whatever you want to freeze (see tips, below). Scatter the rest with coriander leaves and serve with basmati rice and naan bread. Try Freezing tips To safely freeze, cool the curry as quickly as possible, then freeze as soon as it's completely cooled. Divide into freezer-proof containers, or use takeaway containers. To avoid freezer burn, make sure all chicken pieces are well covered with sauce. This curry will freeze well for up to 3 months. Defrost overnight in the fridge. Once thoroughly defrosted, reheat gently to prevent yogurt from splitting. Make sure it's piping hot all the way through before serving. Making your own curry paste In a small food processor, whizz together 5 garlic cloves, 1 large knob of fresh root ginger, roughly chopped, 1 red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped, 2 tsp each ground cumin and coriander, 1 tsp each turmeric, paprika and garam masala, and the seeds from 4 cardamom pods. Add a little water or vegetable oil to bring the paste together. Can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 1 month.
