Thermomix Tikka Sauce and Chicken Tikka Recipe

Posted by Divine Chef on

My kids love chicken tikka. And since I have an authentic tikka recipe from an Indian friend which I have been dying to try, I decided to modify the recipe to use my trusty Thermomix to make the tikka paste from scratch. A bigger batch (just multiply the recipe below) then needed can be made to use for meat, prawn, chicken and fish dishes, for cooking tikka masala curry, or even to use as a sandwich spread. As there will be no preservatives, this can keep in your fridge for up to 6 weeks (you need to add a layer of oil), keeps even longer if you freeze the paste.

What's great is that you can make rempah from scratch using the Thermomix - meaning all my spices are fresh and I am not using the short cut (who knows what's inside) instant spice mix.

Additionally, my kitchen is not oily and less messy as there is only the Thermomix mixing bowl and air fryer to wash. My helper loves how the Thermomix has changed our lives because she has less to wash up.
