How do I make non-dairy Chicken Tikka curry?
 
Hello everyone,
I'm a high school student from Wisconsin who likes to cook a lot, and I wanted to make Chicken Tikka Masala for my family, using one of Jamie Oliver's recipes (https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/c...ikka-masala/);

However, one of my brothers is allergic to all dairy products, meaning I cannot use yoghurt to make this curry, an essential ingredient for the recipe.
I don't want him to be left out, but I also don't want to equivocate and make a bad tasting curry.

How can I replace the yoghurt to make a delicious, yet dairy-free Chicken Tikka?
Maybe another recipe would suit better? :rolleyes:

Hi, bCrash. Welcome to Discuss Cooking :smile:

I would try replacing the yogurt with coconut milk. The flavor will be slightly different but with the other strong flavors in the recipe, it should work well. Good luck.

I normally agree with you :smile:

But I think coconut milk would taste really wrong in chicken tikka masala.

I cooked for a dairy allergic person for 15 years and I would suggest soy yogurt. Its not that bad.

They make soy-based alternatives for most dairy products. They should be easy to find in Madison.

I'll take your word for it. I've only had tikka masala a couple of times, in Indian restaurants. I've never made it.

The Jamie Oliver version calls for 2 cups of coconut milk in the sauce.

I would leave out the yogurt in the marinade or use a little of the coconut milk from the amount reserved for the sauce.

I don't think I've ever had chicken tikka masala made with coconut milk. Just cream.

The few times I've made it I used half and half.

emulsify chicken broth with an oil based product, vegetable oil etc. then add to the chicken tikka masala. gives it better flavor.
