Tikka is a type of food from the Indian subcontinent, found predominantly in Punjabi cuisine, and usually served as an appetizer. It is also known as teeka or teekka. "Tikka" refers to a piece of meat, such as a cutlet. The popular dish chicken tikka is made of chicken cutlets in a marinade. Vegetarian varieties are also popular. A westernized version, chicken tikka masala, a curry, is a widely popular dish in the United Kingdom.
To make a perfect Chicken Tikka Masala marinade, simply mix 1 cup of plain yogurt with 1 tablespoon of Tikka Mix and incorporate. Let the chicken marinate for at least an hour before cooking, but for ideal flavor try to let it sit for four or more hours, up to a full 24 hours. Serve your cooked Chicken Tikka Masala over rice and with some naan on the side to soak up the extra sauce.
