  1. To begin with, it’s best to cook the tikka masala sauce. Peel the ginger and grate it slowly. Mix the yoghurt with the ginger, lemon juice and spices.
  2. Cut the chicken fillet into small pieces. Leave them in a bowl with this tender sauce for an hour. If you have enough time, you may even leave them overnight.
  3. When you’re ready to cook, take the slices of poultry out of the bowl and get rid of the leftovers of the marinade. Put them into a tray, covered with tinfoil. Cook the chicken for 10-14 minutes until the meat is golden-yellow.
  4. During the process of cooking, you should turn the slices over to ensure that they are cooked through.
  5. While you’re baking the chicken, cook the hot, spicy sauce. Chop up the chilli pepper and garlic. Mash the canned tomatoes, using a powerful blender. If you use tomato sauce, it should be smooth as well.
  6. reheat the small pot with the melted butter in it. Cook the garlic and pepper on a slow fire for two minutes. Stir everything constantly. Add the spices.
  7. Next, add cream and tomato sauce. Boil this mixture and lower the fire. Cook everything for 10 minutes.
  8. Add chicken to the pan with the sauce and continue cooking your delicacy for 5 more minutes.
  9. Now it`s time to cook the tortillas. Indian “naan” are very easy to cook. Mix warm water with milk, sugar and dry yeast. Leave everything in the bowl for 10-15 minutes. Then, add 1 whipped egg and the flour. Knead the dough slowly. Divide the dough into small balls. Flatten each one.
  10. Fry these flat circles in the preheated pan with the melted butter. Make sure to fry them on both sides.

Serve yummy tikka masala chicken with the tortillas and the portion of the white rice. Decorate chicken with the chopped cilantro. Bon Appetite!
