Chicken Tikka with Turmeric Cabbage

{{totalReview}}
It isn’t a stretch to say that Chicken Tikka is a mainstay in Indian cuisine. Traditionally skewered and baked, these juicy morsels of boneless chicken are cooked in a rich blend of spices, coconut milk and tomatoes in this low carb recipe. Served on a bed of sautéed turmeric cabbage, it is also topped with a garnish of curry leaves and cashews for a nutty finish.

    • Turn heat to medium low ensure the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
    • You may add a bit of water if the gravy is too dry.

    | To make the cashew nut powder, soak raw whole cashew nuts overnight. This removes the phytic acid from them, which may cause indigestion.
