Tikka means ‘boned and cut into cubes’. The best meat to use is chicken thighs, which are inexpensive in large packets.


  • 5-cm / 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped


The day before, put the ginger into a food processor with the garlic and 4 tablespoons of the yoghurt. Blitz this to a paste and put into a bowl with the remaining yoghurt, the flour, nutmeg, cumin, pepper, chilli powder, turmeric, cardamom, salt, sunflower oil and lemon juice. Mix all together.
