This really easy Tikka Masala Paste is great to have handy in the fridge, ready for your next impromptu curry night.
Just a couple of teaspoons can be added to any meat or veggies and you have the makings of a great curry dish. I also love the fact that I know exactly whats gone into the paste so I can keep my curry dish nice and healthy.
I love a good curry and I hate to feel guilty about eating it.
I like to marinade sliced chicken breasts with a helping of this paste before cooking up a wonderfully healthy chicken curry – see my recipe here. But of course you could use any meat, fish or veggies. Or if you don’t have time to make a paste, check out my super quick, paste-free chicken and almond curry.

I often make up a large batch and fill a couple of jars to keep in the fridge for the next month or so.
The beauty of making your own paste is that you can make it as coarse or as smooth as you like and also alter the consistency by adding more or less water, depending on how you like it.
