Making chicken tikka is easy. Just cut up the chicken, coat with the spice and yoghurt mix then refrigerate for a few hours (ideally 24) before grilling. The same Tikka Mix can also be stored in 4 tbsp amounts to make my Tikka Masala dish Separate this before you marinate any raw meat in the masala.
