Chicken Masala (Tikka Masala spice system) - made on 26th January 2012

What did I use:
  1. 6 Chicken thigh pieces (boneless)
  2. 6 tbsp. Yoghurt
  3. 1 tsp red chili powder
  4. 1 tbsp Garlic past
  5. 2 tbsp Ginger paste
  6. 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  7. 1 tsp Curry Powder (Garam Masala)
  8. 4-5 tsp lemon juice
  9. Salt to taste  
For Gravy
  1. 2 Tomatoes(chopped)
  2. 1 Onion
  3. 1 tsp Ginger-garlic paste
  4. ½ tsp. Cumin powder
  5. ½ tsp. Coriander powder
  6. ¼ cup Milk
  7. 1 tsp Sugar
  8. Salt to taste
 How did I cook
Cut chicken into smaller pieces. Drain the water after washing the chicken.
Mix all ingredients for the marinade and add chicken into it. Set aside for at least 1 hour.
Heat oil and add ginger, garlic paste. Fry a little and add chopped onions.
Keep heat on high to slightly caramelize the onions. Caramelizing onions enhances its flavors for this dish.
When onions turn golden, add chopped tomatoes and keep frying on medium heat until the oil separates.
Add cumin and coriander powder. Mix well. 
Add tomato and yogurt. And cook for 5 minutes.
Add salt and sugar and drop the marinated chicken pieces in it.
Let it simmer for 5 minutes on low heat and let the flavors mingle a little.
Increase heat to high and incorporate milk slowly. Stirring continuously.
Once the gravy is of right consistency, reduce heat to low. 
Prepare any garnish.
Serve with white rice.
