Tikka Curry Paste Pestle


You’ll need:

1 pouch of Pestle Tikka Paste

500g diced chicken, paneer or vegetables

400ml passata

50ml cream (dairy or non diary)

30g butter (optional)


Cooking instructions:

1. If using chicken or paneer, brown in a dry pan for a few minutes and then add paste & passata
2. Bring to a gentle simmer, loosely cover and cook on a low heat for 30 mins
3. Remove from heat and gently stir through cream and butter (optional)


Useful tips: Stir frequently and add water if sauce thickens too quickly. Allow to cool slightly before adding cream and butter.


Alternative uses: This paste makes an incredible marinade for BBQ’s or slow roasts – simply mix paste with 1 tbsp yogurt and 1 tsp tomato puree and marinade for 4-24 hours before cooking.
