Chicken Tikka Masala With Seeded Basmati & Red Onion Salsa

I love a powerful and strong curry; however, this is not everyone’s cup of tea. Therefore, I have learnt to compromise with masala. Masala is almost like a curry; it is flavourful and relatively spicy without the overpowering curry aroma and burning sensation the I love so much.

Chefs Tips
When making masala, I generally make two salsas, one plain and another with a few chopped chilies for some extra heat! This is a simple recipe which can be adapted to your liking, add some chilies or any other spices to the masala mix. These leftovers are amazing on a Roti the next day.
