Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten Free and Dairy Free Chicken Tikka Masala.

I hope everyone’s week is going well so far. I’ve been trying to get out of bed a little earlier to try and make some better breakfasts on work days rather than just waiting for the weekend. Today I managed to make my recipe for healthy oat and banana pancakes, freshly squeezed apple juice and a soya pumpkin spiced latte. I think it works as I went to work feeling quite pleased with myself – we will see how long it lasts!

After all that breakfast chat today’s recipe doesn’t have anything to do it – instead it is all about curry. I have a number of curry recipes on the website already but I don’t have one for the famous chicken tikka masala. Don’t panic and be put off when you see the ingredients list, it is mainly spices that are either in your store cupboard or you can easily pick up.
