Easy Chicken Tikka Masala

Probably one of the favourite Indian inspired dishes, chicken tikka masala has a lovely blend of tomatoes with creamy coconut milk. Ballymaloe Original Relish adds an extra layer to the dish, with our blend of tomatoes and spices. It’s a great introduction to fusion food for children too.
