One thought on “Chicken Tikka”

  1. I’m American, from the South. I love Indian cuisine am curious to explore. I like the presentation very much EXCEPT, I need to know the proportions of incredients: how MUCH Fenugreek!!??? How much cinnamon?? I often cook recipes of my own counry/region without measuring: this comes from initial training from mother and grandmother and years of practice. However, with your cuisine, I am a beginner. I like the recipe videos because they allow me to see and feel how to cook the dish. Thank you.
