Slow Cooked Chicken Tikka Masala

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 4 hours 5 minutes   Rated:

Tikka Masala (specifically using chicken) is thought to have originated in Glasgow! Go figure. The Indian community there apparently riffed on butter chicken and this was the result. Pretty yummy. It is one of the most cooked dishes in the world, coming only second to stir fry. So now that we have all of that out of the way, let's get onto currying in your slow cooker. Literally curry no hurry.

Serve it with any of the dishes we love listed below.

Green Rice

Na Na Naan Bread

Garlic and Spring Onion Naan

Cambodian Beef Curry

Turmeric Yoghurt

Coconut Lentil Daal

Very, Very Tasty Batata Vadas

Eggplant Brinjal (Pickle)
