INFO & TIPS
Tikka means strong/spicy. So the ginger, cayenne, chilli powder, garam (hot) masala all add heat to the dish. Adding the ground green chillies is completely optional based om how hot you would like the dish.
You may also substitute with healthier options, so almond or cashew milk, and a low/med fat yoghurt (plain or coconut flavored)
