    Hi Naomi Roskell

    Sorry to hear your final result turned out differently.

    All we could suggest, is that the pieces of chicken were too small and subsquently shredded. The Recipe Developers, in our test kitchen, use a ruler to measure the size of the items being added to the bowl. This is a rule to maintain a standard with all test results in recipe we test inhouse.

    We hope it has not dampened your spirit. This is a delicious recipe and one that we hope will find your way to your dining table again.

    Happy cooking!

    Warm regards

    Amazing...loved it! I was a bit put off by the long list of ingredients but it was so worth it and very easy. I did add a tablespoon of cornflour at the end and cooked it a further 2 minutes, result perfect consistancy😊 Thank you for posting!

    Definite make again recipe. I used garlic cloves and pickled ginger instead of paste, butter instead of gee and yellow mustard seeds instead of fenugreek as I already had these on hand. I also left the chilli out altogether. Very easy to make.

    kochipoik:

    Hi Kochipoik,

    Please be aware that in step 3, the speed is shown as speed 1 (one). For safety reasons, the heating element can't be used on speed 7. The TM setting in step 3 is: 3 min/Varoma/speed 1.


    In step 4, the onion, garlic paste and ginger paste are chopped on speed 7, however the heating element isn't used.

    The chicken should not shred when using the reverse function (Counter-clockwise operation) on speed Gentle stir setting (soft). We tested this recipe in house at least three times and the chicken didn't shred in any of our tests.

    We hope you try making the recipe again - it's one of our most popular!

    Regards

  • I had a few minor issues...

    Submitted by kochipoik on 24. June 2017 - 17:47.

    I had a few minor issues
    - The speed for the paste was too high - it flung the sauce on the sides of the bowl so it could no longer mix. Worked better on speed 4
    - Step 3 has an error - the heat is disabled over speed 6, so I did it at speed 4.
    - I also prefer chopping onions at a lower speed - usually 5 seconds speed 5, at high speeds I've found you're more likely to get unevenly chopped onion as large pieces are flung to the sides
    - The chicken got shredded! Not sure exactly why, but I wasn't left with any whole pieces of chicken - most of the chicken was shredded quite small, with only a few whole pieces.
    - For some reason I found the sauce a touch grainy.
    - I didn't need the second lot of sugar, and I added more chilli powder and salt to taste.

    The finished dish was pretty good, although I don't think it was as good as my usual tikka masala recipe (from The Little India Cookbook, which I've converted to the Thermomix) and I wonder if it would be better if you let the spices and tomato cook for a while before adding the cream and tomato?

    Submitted by Mrs Perkington on 23. June 2017 - 22:59.

    Delicious! Perfect depth of flavour. Error at step 3 - speed should be 6 not 7 (my TM5 alerted heat disabled at speed over 6). I used 40g butter instead of ghee and for chilli I added a sprinkling of dried chilli flakes for both parts as I didn't have chilli powder and it was good. I used fresh ginger and garlic (3 cloves + 2 cloves). Will definitely make this again.

    Submitted by JulieRara on 22. June 2017 - 18:27.

    I split the paste in half and made a chicken tikka masala and a chana (chickpea) tikka masala. They were both very nice and rather mild and ever so slightly sweet. If i was served this in a restaurant I'd be pleased with the meal.My impression is that the recipe serves 4 rather than 6. Can't wait for the new cookbook

    Don't be put off by the long list of ingredients. Worth it. And even better if you leave for a day after cooking then finish off by warming up in a slow oven for about ab hour to round out the flavours. You with some toasted slivered almonds and a sprinkling of coriander. Did I mention cauliflower rice ....

    Just finished this dish, had all the ingredients on hand except the cream, used coconut cream instead. Don't think it affected the taste. Absolutely quick and easy to prepare and delicious to eat. Hubby said he would pay for this in a restaurant. After this little teaser, can't wait to get the book.
