Make your own takeaway with this quick recipe for Britain’s favourite dish – chicken tikka masala. For something a little different, try our tikka masala pork chops.


  • 500g carton passata
  • 2 tbsp tikka masala curry paste (we like Patak’s)
  • 400g cooked chicken tikka mini fillets (we like Waitrose)
  • 142ml carton single cream
  • Handful of chopped fresh coriander leaves


  1. Heat the passata in a deep, wide frying pan over a medium heat until simmering. Stir in the curry paste and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add the chicken tikka mini fillets and cream. Allow the sauce to come up to a simmer again and cook for 4-5 minutes, until the chicken is hot throughout.
  3. Stir in the coriander and serve with cooked basmati rice and warmed naan bread.
