  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil, plus extra ½ tsp
  • 4 cm piece of ginger, peeled and cut into long thin slices
  • 75g natural yoghurt
  • 15g mint, leaves picked
  • 15g coriander, leaves picked and roughly chopped
  • 45g cucumber, deseeded and finely diced
  • 1 300g pack The Spice Tailor Original Tikka Masala Curry Kit
  • 250g chicken thighs, diced
  • 2 green chillies, cut into long thin slices


Step 1

Heat ½ tsp vegetable oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the ginger for a few minutes until golden and crispy, then remove from the pan and leave to one side on a piece of kitchen roll.

Step 2

Mix the yoghurt, mint and most of the coriander together in a small food processor, or pestle and mortar, until smooth. Season to taste with salt. Stir through the finely diced cucumber and set to one side.

Step 3

For the curry, return the frying pan to a medium high heat. Add the remaining 1 tbsp vegetable oil, dry spices from the spice sachet and fry for 20 secs until aromatic.

Step 4

Add the diced chicken thighs to brown lightly. Add the Original Tikka Masala base sauce from the small pouch and simmer for a few mins.

Step 5

Stir in the main sauce, bring to a simmer and gently bubble for 4-5 mins until the chicken is cooked through, adding a splash of water if it begins to look a little dry.

Step 6

Serve with basmati rice, drizzle over the herby cucumber yoghurt, then scatter with remaining coriander, sliced chilli and fried ginger.
