Recipe: tikka seasoning

I thought I'd use up some of my separate spices and make this.

I got the recipe here.

It got changed to match what I had but not much and I reduced it to 1/3 so all credit goes to the creator, not to me.

two tsp each of ground coriander, ground cumin, garlic powder (I used granules), paprika.
one and a third tsps roasted garam masala (or the ordinary kind is fine too but I have roasted so used that).
one tsp ground ginger
two thirds tsp chilli powder
good pinch mango powder (because I have it and like what it does, but it's optional
if you have it, 1 tsp dried mint (I don't)

Mix together and store in an airtight jar.

I made my chicken tikka by mixing some of the above mix with yogurt and lemon juice and, for the mint, a bit of mint sauce from a jar (bad me), adding the cubed chicken and marinating it all morning before grilling the chicken and sprinkling over some lime juice.
Very nice indeed!

    1. It was really nice and I only used spices I already had in the cupboard. I want to look up other spice mixes now and see what else i can make. :-)
